A recent study focusing on women in membership and leadership positions on law reviews found that the number of women editors-in-chief was disproportionately low (33%) compared to the number of women awarded law degrees during the same time period, according to an article in the National Law Journal. The study covered general interest law reviews at the top 50 law schools, as ranked by U. S. News and World Report, for the 2008-2010 academic years.
Other results of the study were more positive. For instance, women comprised 44% of law review staff members and 46% of law review leadership, which correlated strongly to the number of women graduates. Click here for more.
