For the eighth year in a row, women outnumber men in enrollment at law school, with women now making up more than 56% in 2023—up from 55.8% in 2022—of all students in American Bar Association-accredited U.S. law schools, according to a 2023 Enjuris report.

At the beginning of the 20th century, women made up less than 5% of all law students, but that changed in 2016, when women started outnumbering men. Now the gap has grown by 13.4 percentage points, according to the report, which uses ABA data.
