With a slew of recent articles about the law school rankings and the law of segregation and the rising tide of criminal cases in the country, we decided to take a look at some of the legal issues that are impacting these two fields.
The most obvious trend in this data is that there is a significant amount of law school diversity in the US.
Of the roughly 7,000 law schools in the United States, more than half are in minority communities.
But as the US population ages and becomes more diverse, the law schools are becoming more and more segregated.
That’s particularly true of law schools where more than 80% of students in 2018 were from underrepresented minority backgrounds, and where nearly 60% of graduating law students were black.
This trend is a direct consequence of the high number of criminal charges that are filed in US criminal justice systems, especially in the first few years of law.
The criminal justice system has long had a tendency to incarcerate minority students, particularly poor people of color, in an effort to keep them off the streets and reduce the likelihood that they would become involved in criminal activity.
This is where the law students from under-represented communities are drawn to the legal profession, because of their ability to make a living, get a good education, and generally not be held back by the criminal justice process.
Law school students who are black, Latino, and Native American are also drawn to these law schools for the same reasons: the low cost of attendance, the ability to earn a living through law school, and the opportunity to contribute to society.
A few years ago, it was possible to get into the best law schools with relatively little effort.
Today, the process is a lot more complicated.
As a result, the quality of education at many law schools has declined significantly in recent years.
While the numbers of minority students in the criminal legal system have been declining for decades, the number of students from a given state who have gone on to obtain a criminal conviction in the past few years has been increasing, and it is not just minority students who have benefitted from this trend.
This has led to a number of reports, including the report by the Urban Institute and the National Conference of State Legislatures, that show that the number and type of minority criminal convictions has risen in recent decades.
The Urban Institute reports that the average number of felony convictions in the U.S. for African Americans, Latinos, and other minority groups is about 4.7, while for whites, it is about 5.4.
According to the NCSL, the average white felony conviction is about 2.5 times as high as that for the black, Hispanic, and Asian-American populations.
And for students of color the rate is 1.3 times higher.
These trends have led to many states and federal law enforcement agencies trying to find ways to reduce the number or severity of felony charges.
In response, states and school districts have been looking to reduce student discipline in the classroom, increasing suspensions and expulsions, and using school resources to help students who face expulsion.
In 2018, the Bureau of Justice Statistics reported that the majority of students who were expelled or suspended from a law school were students of colour.
Of those students, more white students were expelled and suspended than the black students and more students of Asian-Americans than the students of other racial groups.
And when the NCSPL surveyed over 600 law schools nationwide, the report found that in more than a third of schools, white students faced suspensions and other disciplinary actions more often than other students.
In addition to the disproportionate treatment of students of minority backgrounds by school systems, the racial disparity in the number, type, and severity of criminal offenses is even greater in the legal world.
Of all the federal crimes in 2018, almost all of them were felonies.
This means that the vast majority of the time, the majority is going to be going to white people.
The result is that in many cases, white people are getting away with far more than their fair share of crimes.
The NCSL report found the following:In California, for example, nearly 20% of the cases were felons, while almost 60% were white.
In New York, the numbers were close to the same: 19% of cases were felony, while 57% were whites.
In Minnesota, the black and Latino population was only 4.9% of all felony cases.
In many cases where white people have been convicted of felonies, they are not only not getting the benefit of the doubt, but are getting an unfair advantage in court.
In Arizona, the white defendants were more likely to get their convictions overturned than the minority defendants.
In California, the percentage of defendants who were convicted of felony was higher in white than in minority cases.
According to a study by the Brennan Center for Justice, the Justice Department’s civil rights division, more whites than blacks are incarcerated for non-violent crimes, such as drug offenses and traffic offenses
