Prawf Entry Level Hiring Down
posted by Lawrence Cunningham
We have reported on the weak market for lateral law professor hires on several occasions this year (all links can be accessed here). Now Sarah Lawsky, a former colleague of mine at GW, lately of Irvine, finds an equally weak market for entry level law professors this year.
Prof. Lawsky offers an array of FAQs, graphs and interactive features to make it fun despite the grim news; she is also very careful to stress the limits of her report, which she emphasizes repeatedly is incomplete. Paul Caron illustrates some of the ways that Prof. Lawsky’s data might be sliced and diced here, as does Brian Leiter, here, and David Zaring, here.
