“American lawyers lean to the left of the ideological spectrum," according to a new study by professors from Harvard, Stanford and the University of Chicago Law School. Charlotte School of Law, Northern Illinois University and Howard University topped the authors’ list of most liberal law schools, and the study found the most liberal practice area is entertainment law. Authors also note that although many lawyers are more liberal than the entire population of political donors, few lawyers are at extreme ends of the ideological spectrum or in the middle of the distribution.
