Paper Abstract We extend the scaling methodology previously used in Bonica (2014) to jointly scale the American judiciary and legal profession in a common-space with other political actors. The end result is the first consistently measured ideological scores across state and federal judiciaries and the legal profession, including 11,115 state and federal judges, 377,427 attorneys in private practice, 3,966 law professors, and 2,726 government attorneys. After discussing the technical details behind these data, we present three examples of their potential use.
