Legal Education Data Desk - AccessLex
The best place to begin. AccessLex Institute’s Legal Education Data Deck utilizes datasets made publicly available by third parties to offer a snapshot of certain data and trends organized around the three guiding principles of AccessLex Institute’s research agenda: access, affordability and value in legal education. This is a living document that is updated periodically—AccessLex welcomes comments, criticisms and suggestions in order to make this as useful a tool as possible for all those we serve.
