LSRJ Announces Results of First National Reproductive Rights Law & Justice Course Survey:
Only 18% of U.S. Law Schools Have Offered Reproductive Rights Law Courses
In a recently released study, Law Students for Reproductive Justice (LSRJ) has found that fewer than one-fifth of ABA-approved law schools offered a reproductive rights law & justice course over the last seven years. Among the 32 schools—located in 17 different states—that have offered their students a formal opportunity to study reproductive rights law as part of their legal training, there were 37 separate courses and instructor-led reading groups that have been taught at least once. More than one-third of known classes have resulted from advocacy by LSRJ chapters.
