The Chronicle of Higher Education released a major study on the education levels of members of state legislatures. The study looked at where state lawmakers reported going to school and produced an interactive map which highlights the highest level of education achieved by state.  A click on the "Law School" tab shows that 17.2% of state legislators have a law degree. The Texas legislature has the most lawyers and North Dakota has the lowest percentage of lawyers.
