AccessLex Announces Updates to Analytix by AccessLex

Research and Data


AccessLex Institute is pleased to announce new updates to its Analytix by AccessLex resource. Analytix was created to put law school data into clear and accessible formats, allowing the legal education community to readily analyze, research and compare law school-specific information.

To enhance the user experience, video tutorials are now available to help users navigate the Analytix tools more effectively. In addition to providing an overview of the tools, the videos anticipate user questions and offer tips for selecting comparison groups and determining when to use the average or median when comparing law schools.

In addition, Analytix now includes the 2017 Standard 509 data. The ABA provided new data elements this year, such as JD enrollment by year and the total number of credits required in first-year and upper-level courses. The ABA also changed the data methodology in some cases. For example, faculty data is reported for the full academic year, as opposed to academic term. These new and modified variables may not be available in the Analytix Trend Report, but they can be analyzed using the Side-by-Side Comparison, Peer Group Comparison and Download Dataset tools. The next Analytix update will include bar passage data for 2016 and 2017, following the release of the ABA’s new bar passage questionnaire reports later this year.
