Who Next, the Janitors? - A Socio-Feminist Critique of the Status Hierarchy of Law Professors
Temple University - James E. Beasley School of Law
UMKC Law Review, Vol. 73, No. 2, pp. 469-497, 2004
This article, which was part of a symposium entitled "Dismantling Hierarchies in Legal Education", uses social inequality and feminist theories to demonstrate that American law faculties are stratified into an illegitimate and gendered hierarchy. It critiques the subjective and contrived nature of this faculty hierarchy and the various criteria used to support it. In particular, it focuses on the academy's use (and misuse) of the academic triad of scholarship, service and teaching to maintain inequality among law faculty. Finally, it challenges law professors and administrators to recognize the hierarchy and work toward greater fairness and parity in the legal academy.
