About the Data

School-specific borrowing data come from U.S. News & World Report, which relies on data reported to U.S. News by law schools. In some cases, law schools do not report the percentage borrowing properly. When that occurs, the previous year's rate is used unless a school reports the correct rate to LST or a better estimate can be generated. Graduate data come from the American Bar Association.

Note The "amount borrowed" does not include interest that accumulates during law school, thus is different than the "amount owed" or "debt." The "average" only includes graduates who borrow.
