Lawyer Statistical Report
The American Bar Foundation has, since 1956, periodically produced The Lawyer Statistical Report with the cooperation of Martindale Hubbell, which provides the data files for this project. The latest edition provides extensive information on lawyers at the national level, and by state, as of the year 2005. An introductory essay reports on the changing demographics of the legal profession and trends over time in lawyer employment and in the number, size, composition, and location of law firms.
This report is unique to the literature about the profession in that it
- provides detailed demographic information on the numbers of lawyers and law firms nationally and on a state-by-state basis
- presents distributions of lawyers across practice settings, among law firms of various sizes, and practice settings by age and gender
