UA Law Professor Andrew Morriss’ Study on Legal Education

Enduring Hierarchies in American Legal Education—co-authored by Andrew Morriss, University of Alabama School of Law; Olufunmilayo Arewa, University of California Irvine School of Law; and William Henderson, Indiana University Maurer School of Law—was recently listed on SSRN’s Top Ten download list for Legal Scholarship Network.  This study is the first of its kind to look across time, using a wide range of data sources, at the hierarchies in legal education.  There has been remarkably little change over the last 80 years in that hierarchy, and this affects the ability of legal education to adapt to the changing employment market.  Click here to download  Enduring Hierarchies in American Legal Education.
