Skip to comments.Study: Law Faculties Short on White Christians, Republicans
Posted on 03/25/2015 9:00:59 PM PDT by Behind Liberal Lines
The demographic groups most underrepresented on law faculties include white Christians and Republicans, according to research by Northwestern University School of Law professor James Lindgren.
His working paper, Measuring Diversity: Law Faculties in 1997 and 2013, challenges the notion that women and minorities are underrepresented in teaching the law. Those groups actually have made significant gains....
But viewpoint diversity did not improve. For example, 59 percent of lawyers in 2013 identified as white Christians, and that group comprised nearly 57 percent of the working population. Yet white Christians made up just 34 percent of law professors.
Republican men comprised 23 percent of both the working population and lawyers, but only 10 percent of law professors.
Conversely, Lindgren found that women were slightly overrepresented on law faculties compared to the pool of lawyersnearly 36 percent of professors but only 32 percent of lawyers. Women overall accounted for 45 percent of the working population....
Lindgren is not the first to conclude that law faculties skew liberal. Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law looked at new professor hires in 2010 and found far more open liberals than conservatives.
An openly conservative part-time legal writing instructor, Teresa Wagner, is suing the University of Iowa College of Law, claiming she was passed over for a full-time position because of her political views.

the whole point of EVERYTHING in this country is to displace the white, christian male from power.
surprise surprise surprise
Regent University School of Law is still pretty much full of white Christians. But I know that law school is a big exception.
As in STEM, the Christian Republicans are out making a difference in the world, you know, by actually working and creating something. The non-Christian Democrats are sitting back conspiring with Universities to put students in life-long debt servitude so these profs can live an easy, secure life.
Law faculties, not necessarily reflective of student enrollment...
Campus life can be somewhat of a brain-dead experience which might explain the deficit in contention.
Wow. Who wudda thunk!
“God and man at Yale” William F. Buckley about 60 years past.
Lets look at this another way.
Blacks are what, 12 or 13% of the population and yet in TV AD’s and on the local news channels anywhere in this country they represent over 50% of AD’s and 90% of local news channels.
Lets look at this administration too. Blacks are in charge of how may depts.? I ask because every time I see a dept head it is either a black guy or woman or a white woman. It seems it is rare today to see a white guy in charge of much in this admin
“...the whole point of EVERYTHING in this country is to displace the white, christian male from power...”
And it is insidious in that every facet of life is being distorted and subverted by the aggressive, adolescent, psychotic individuals who are a part of the Progressive “fundamental change” movement.
(they are scu&bags and they are active.)
And anyone honest on the left would say - “ya, and that’s a good thing”,
without being able to tell you WHY it’s good,
besides “they’ve had the power too long”.
We have lived in Californicator land since 1971.
During that time we have met a ton of lawyers.
None of them were Republicans/conservatives.
Three could be classified as Christians re regular church attendance and donations of time and talent. In spite of all the rat scandals from Carter to Clinton and Obozo, both of the men and the one woman lawyer are supporters of the Democrats with money, time and their votes.
In legalities, there is no money in truth. But there is loads of money to be made in obfuscation and lies that create hung juries and NG OJ verdicts.
Those are not Christian nor Conservative values.
“Disparate Impact” alert!
However, major law schools are NOT SHORT of Communists, Marxists and far-left sympathizers. Columbia, NYU, John Jay, Rutgers, UCal Berkeley (Bolt Hall), Georgetown Un, and many others.
Not a statistically accurate depiction of America in media.
No, it's the "whole point" of a tiny minority: the Communist International and their fellow-travelers in America, who are now modishly deemed the "mainstream" when in fact they absolutely are not ... unless you consult their allies in Media.
If you gape at the massive power wielded by such a tiny outgroup minority in adverse possession of even the White House, then you have your thumb firmly on what may be a fatal weakness of our political system: Its openness, in the name of liberty, to hostile conspiracies launched by our enemies.
This is because us White Christian Republicans choose a career that will have us do an honest day’s work...
