Abstract

Although in many respects the goal of hiring and retaining a diverse faculty is like other institutional goals, it will require a different approach because it is different in one important respect -- namely, that the institution must work against the structural and systemic inequality that plagues every area of our society. Part of the Iowa Law Review's symposium, “Rethinking Legal Education” (February 25–26, 2011), this presentation offers specific advice on the search process and how an institution can support the faculty of color it hires.

Keywords: race, people of color, minorities, law professors, legal education, faculty, recruiting, retention
