Women outnumbered men in law school classrooms for the first time in 2016, according to a study cited by Above the Law. Last year was similar, with 2017 data revealing that women’s enrollment at law students once again outpaced that of their male colleagues. The 2017 data shows that 56,490 women (51.27 percent), 53,645 men (48.69 percent), and 49 people who identified as “other” (0.04 percent) were enrolled in law school. The study reports that 49 percent of Tennessee law students are women, and lists Vanderbilt Law School with 51.2 percent.
