Nearly all law schools allow transgender and nonbinary students to use the name of their choosing on applications and forms, even if it’s not their legal name. But many schools still don’t have a process for faculty to self-identify as LGBTQ.

Those are two of the key takeaways from the LGBT Bar’s third annual Law School Campus Climate Survey, which tracks policies and resources for LGBTQ students and faculty. More than half of the 197 American Bar Association-accredited law schools—110—completed this year’s survey, which is the highest response rate since its launch in 2019. The results show that while many schools have made progress when it comes to supporting gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and nonbinary students and faculty, there is still plenty of work to be done to ensure their campuses, health care programs and data collection are inclusive.
