New website and resources on diversity in legal education

...or the lack thereof.  The Society of American Law Teachers and the Lawyering in the Digital Age Clinic at Columbia University School of Law have put together a website exploring racial and ethnic diversity in American law schools.  Their central finding: the proportion of African-Americans and Mexican-Americans among law students has declined over the last 15 years, despite increases in applications and in numerical qualifications among these groups.  The site pulls together resources on a number of different fronts, including on the effects of over-reliance on the LSAT on diversity.

Well worth some of your time perusing it.
