Abstract

This article provides a data-driven snapshot of the law school faculty members who teach Labor and Employment Law. Among its findings are the following:

• The teaching of Labor Law is declining and the teaching of Employment Law is rising.

• Men dominate the teaching of Labor Law, but women have mostly narrowed the gap in Employment Law.

• The other courses taught by Labor/Employment Law faculty members are highly sex segregated. For example, Employment Law faculty members who also teach Family Law or Property are overwhelmingly likely to be women, and Employment Law faculty members who also teach Constitutional Law, Civil Procedure, or Contracts are overwhelmingly likely to be men.

• Both Labor and Employment Law faculty members are more prevalent in top-tier law schools than in bottom-tier law schools; in the Great Lakes, Northeast, and Midsouth regions than in other regions of the country; and in large metropolitan areas than in rural areas.

Keywords: labor, employment, professors, faculty, snapshot
