Each year all ABA accredited schools are required to complete a 509 ABA Standard Disclosure Report. These reports, made freely available on the ABA’s website, contains a wide range of information relating to tuition costs, faculty makeup, entrance information, and more.

The ABA Bar Tracker. This tool is awesome whether you are pre-law student deciding which school is the right one, or whether you are currently in law school and deciding which state to take the bar.

Use the below tool to click a state, or a school to see how each performed in 2014.
