Study on Student Experiences at Harvard Law School

Over the past two years, a group of students investigated the experiences of female and male students at Harvard Law School. The study group collected and analyzed data from a variety of sources. We conducted three online student surveys, monitored student participation in 190 class meetings, analyzed three recent years of first-year course grades, collected information on extracurricular involvement, held a series of student focus groups, and compiled data on mental health visits, post-graduate employment, and clerkships.
