LGBTQ+ Law School Guide—Available Now

January 2, 2019

Every other year, LSAC surveys its member law schools to update information of importance to LGBTQ applicants. This information helps applicants gauge the LGBTQ climates of prospective law schools, providing another way to determine if a law school is the right fit for them. Nearly 100 law schools in the United States and Canada responded to the 2018 LGBTQ Law School Survey, which asked schools to answer the following questions:

  1. Does your law school have a nondiscrimination policy that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation?
  2. Does your law school have a nondiscrimination policy that prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender identity?
  3. Does your law school provide gender-neutral restrooms?
  4. Does your law school have a lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender student organization?
  5. Does your law school have any openly lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender faculty members?
  6. Does your law school have any openly lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender administrators?
  7. Does your law school offer any academic courses primarily focused on lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender legal issues?
  8. Does your law school offer the same benefits to faculty, staff, or student same-sex spouses as they do opposite-sex spouses?
  9. Does your law school offer any form of domestic-partner benefits to faculty, staff, or students?
