• Historically White law schools had more Excess Whiteness (34 points) than non-historically White law schools (4 points). This difference was statistically significant (p=.000).

  • Public law schools (35 points) had more Excess Whiteness than private law schools (30 points). The difference was statistically significant (p=.172).

  • Law school rankings can be divided into four tiers that in theory, represent the quality and status of a law school. The level of Whiteness is significantly correlated to its tier. Second-tier law schools (40 points) have more Excess Whiteness than fourth-tier law schools (22 points). This difference among tiers is statistically significant (p=.001). 

  • Puerto Rico had the lowest Excess Whiteness (2 points.) and South Carolina and Alabama had the highest (74 points). The difference between states was not statistically significant (p=.110).

  • The ABA-LSAC divides the country into ten regions. The country's region made a difference in law schools with the greatest excess whiteness was the Southeast (43 points) and the region with the lowest was New England (18 points). The difference among regions is statistically significant (p=.002).

 The total percentage of White students in law school was measured against the following pools:

  • The National LSAC Applicant Pool
  • The State LSAC Applicant Pool
