Class Profiles

We are pleased to welcome 252 new students to the Northwestern Pritzker School of Law in August 2020. These students have enrolled in three programs: the traditional 3-year JD, our JD-MBA, and our JD-PhD. Within the programs combined, 96 percent were interviewed by an admissions staff member, an alumnus, or a current student through our unique admissions interviewing program.

Continuing our strong emphasis on enrolling students with work experience, 87% possess at least one year of post-undergraduate experience.  As has been the case historically, we have enrolled another geographically diverse entering class: 43% are from the Midwest, 19% are from the Northeast, 17% are from the West, 16% are from the South, and 7% are international.  Furthermore, 51% are women and 34% are students of color.
