Black Enrollments at the Law Schools at Historically Black Universities

The American Bar Association has compiled and published enrollment and degree completion data for its member law schools. Here we will examine Black enrollments at the law schools at historically Black colleges and universities. There are currently six law schools at Historically Black institutions: Florida A&M University, Howard University, North Carolina Central University, Southern University, Texas Southern University, and the University of the District of Columbia.

At Howard University’s law school in Washington, D.C., there were 122 Black students enrolled in 2019. They made up 76.3 percent of the total enrollments in juris doctorate programs. This is the highest percentage of Black enrollments at any of the six law schools at HBCUs.

At the law school at Texas Southern University in Houston, there were 120 Black students among the total enrollments of 195. Thus, Blacks were 61.5 percent of all students.

Ar the four other law schools at HBCUs, Blacks were less than half of the total enrollments. Blacks were 47 percent of the students at the University of the District of Columbia and were 49.5 percent of the students at Florida A&M University.

Blacks made up 39 percent of the enrollments at the law school at Southern University and less than a third of all enrollments at the law school at North Carolina Central University.
