Professor LoPucki Discusses Era of PhD Law Professors with Bloomberg BNA

February 19, 2016—Professor Lynn LoPucki talked to Bloomberg BNA about his study Dawn of the Discipline-Based Law Faculty, which reviewed the entry-level hires of AALS-member law schools between 2011 and 2015 and found a sharp uptick in the rate at which law schools are hiring faculty members with PhDs.

“This is the beginning of an era in which the PhDs control law faculties,” said Professor LoPucki.
