American Bar Association, Market Research Department, Statistical Sources,

Lawyers love statistics and legal researchers love statistics about lawyers and the legal community. This website offers a nice collection of links to a variety of online statistical sources on:

  • lawyers (demographics, diversity, malpractice claims, mandatory CLE, quality of life, salaries)
  • law firms (attrition/retention, rankings, specialties)
  • law students and legal education (bar exam, faculty, law schools, law students)
  • corporate counsel and law departments (outside corporate counsel, spending)
  • courts and caseload statistics (federal and state)

The page also links to websites on related topics, including bar associations, law-related associations, the justice system, technology, general legal research, and market research.

Can't find the statistic you need? The Market Research Department provides a web-based information request form you may use to submit a question. Turnaround time is three business days.
