In December of 2018, the National LGBT Bar Association and Foundation invited all ABA-accredited law schools in the United States to participate in the National LGBT Bar Association’s first annual Law School Climate Survey. This survey was designed to identify policies and procedures that specifically impact the schools’ LGBTQ+ population. The survey asked each school to identify only their law school’s policies and data, and not those of any broader University structure associated with that law school.
The grid below includes data that the 67 responding schools submitted in the form of “Yes” and “No” answers, based upon the schools’ 2018-19 school year policies and data. Please click on each individual school’s name for more detailed answers and information.
As a companion to this survey, the National LGBT Bar Association has created a toolkit as a resource to assist law schools in their efforts to foster a safe, welcoming community free from discrimination.
In addition to the information contained in the climate survey, the National LGBT Bar has compiled non-discrimination policies for each ABA-accredited law school in the United States and has noted whether each school bars discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and/or gender identity. This data represents our best information as of February 1, 2019. If you are affiliated with an ABA-accredited law school and believe that our information is out-of-date, please contact Chief Program Officer Judi O’Kelley with an updated link to your law school’s non-discrimination policy.
The National LGBT Bar Association and Foundation profusely thanks the 67 law schools that responded to this survey.
