A report titled “A Portrait of Asian Americans in the Law” shows first-year Asian-American law school enrollment has dropped 43% since 2009 — which is the largest decline of any ethnic or racial group. For comparison, white and African American enrollment have dropped by 34% and 14%, respectively. (Hispanic enrollment has actually increased by 29% since 2009.)
While the study projects the number of Asian lawyers will increase for at least another decade as the number of Asian graduates will continue to outpace the number of Asians retiring from the legal profession, the report does pose questions about how a lack of legal representation may impact Asian Americans in the future.
Best of luck with your applications!
