Correlations

 

  • The nine non-historically White schools were statistically significantly less White than the historically White law schools (p=.000).

  • Public law schools (49) were Whiter than private law schools (43) but the difference was not statistically significant (p=.131).

  • The law school rankings can be divided into four tiers. Those tiers, in theory, represent the relative quality and status of a law school. The level of Whiteness is significantly correlated to tier. Second-tier law schools (55) are Whiter than fourth-tier law schools (34). The difference was statistically significant (p=.001).

  • The law schools are located in 49 of the 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia. (Alaska is the only state with no law school.) Based on total whiteness and excess whiteness, Alabama and South Carolina (90) had the whitest law schools and Puerto Rico (3) had the least white law school. The difference among states was not statistically significant (p=.147).

  • The ABA-LSAC divides the country into 10 regions. The region made a difference in law schools' Whiteness. Based on total whiteness and excess whiteness, New England had the least white law school (32) and Midsouth Region had the whitest (56). The difference was statistically significant (p=.028).
