This study examines law school faculty diversity particularly for women of color. There are currently low retention and recruitment rates for women of color. Further compounding the issue is low faculty recruitment rates overall due to decreased enrollment. In 2009, only 7% of law school faculty were women of color. While most studies focus on student diversity as impacting change, Deo argues that diverse faculty will lead to long term institutionalized change.
