The information on this chart was originally compiled by the American Bar Association and gives the state, this year’s population of lawyers, last year’s number, and the percent that the numbers changed from 2014 to 2015.

Florida had a growth of 8.5 percent, possibly due to the rumors of changing their bar exam rules. Puerto Rico grew by 7.9 percent and Utah by 7.3 percent. Nebraska had a growth of 6.6 percent.
