More Than 90 Percent Of Top 50 Law Schools Are Liberal

Apr 20, 2017

Rob Shimshock posted a study at the Daily Caller indicating that “Forty-seven of the nation's top 50 law schools are liberal, and while 35 percent of lawyers across the country are conservative. Only 15 percent of law professors lean conservative, according to a recent study.” The study , The Legal Academy's Ideological Uniformity, was published April 14 by Adam Bonica of Stanford University, Adam S. Chilton of the University of Chicago, Kyle Rozema of Northwestern, and Maya Sen of Harvard. Only Brigham Young University, George Mason University, and Pepperdine University's law schools are predominantly conservative, according to the study, but even those two schools have only one or two strict constitutionalists on the faculty.
