Minority student enrollment at law schools in New York state and across the country is on the rise, but the tenure-track faculty does not reflect the diverse student body, according to the data compiled by the American Bar Association.
The year 2000 edition of the ABA’s Guide to Approved Law Schools reported earlier this month that minority students accounted for 21.2 percent of the total national entering class in 1998; this is up from 20.1 percent in 1997. Yet only 13.4 percent of the full-time law school faculty were minorities in 1998, up only slightly from 13.3 percent in 1997.
