SCOTUS OT2022 argument gender data

High School SCOTUS has 2022 Data Breakdown: Gender Diversity

  • In the October 2022 term, advocates appeared before the Court 155 times in 59 cases on the merits docket. Men appeared 117 times, while women appeared just 38 times. But many prominent advocates, especially men, argued more than one time at the Court, skewing the values above. When accounting only for unique appearances, just 20 women — 19% of the 103 total advocates — argued before the justices.
  • This term marked a 7% drop in female representation at the Court — in the 2021 term, a somewhat uplifting 26% of advocates were women.
