Law School LGBT Survey Results

Every other year, LSAC surveys its member law schools to update information of importance to LGBT applicants. More than 150 law schools in the United States, Canada, and Australia responded to the 2016 survey. In the list of schools that follows, additional information can be accessed by clicking on any school name that appears as a link. If a school’s name does not have a link, it is because that school did not provide additional information.

  1. Does the law school have a nondiscrimination policy that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity?
  2. Does the law school have a lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender student organization?
  3. Does the law school have any openly lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender faculty members?
  4. Does the law school have any openly lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender administrators?
  5. Does the law school offer any courses primarily focused on lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender legal issues?
  6. Does the law school offer any form of domestic-partner or same-sex marriage benefits to faculty, staff, or students?
