Law Professors’ Working Paper Reveals Lower Status Roles for Women Faculty & Staff

The ABA Journal reports that a new paper published August 16 offers insights on the historical and current status of women in law schools, tracking data from 1948 through an initial leap in inclusion in the 1960’s to the environment in 2021.  In addition to tracing the rise in female law students, the authors identified that currently women are two times more likely than men to serve as interim deans or to occupy lower status positions such as adjuncts, lecturers, and clinical and legal writing professors.
