Total Law Professor JD Applicant Statistics: 1997-2007
posted by Daniel Solove
I’ve been posting data about law professor applicants (see here and here), and I thought I’d share some more data that I have that AALS provided me with. Here is data about the schools with the most applicants from 1997-2007. During 1997-2007, there were 8675 applicants with JDs from US law schools. This is not the total number of applicants, as the statistic does not include applicants without JDs and from foreign law schools. The average number of applicants with JDs from US law schools from 1997-2007 is 789 per year.
The table below has more information.

The first 10 schools above comprise 37% of all applicants. The first 4 schools above — Harvard, Yale, Georgetown, and Columbia — comprise 21% of all applicants.
