Minority enrollments are up at law schools across the country, but those figures mask a drop in the number of black law students.

ABA statistics show steady growth in minority enrollment from 24,611 in the 1994-95 school year to 29,489 for 2004-05, a period when overall enrollment also grew, from 128,989 to 148,169. So while overall enrollment increased by 14.8 percent, minority enrollment went up by 19.8 percent, mainly because of a 40.6 percent increase in the number of Asian-American and Pacific Island law students.
