Abstract

The pipeline for women of color joining the law review and ascending into law review leadership positions, such as EIC, is one such site of legal education worth exposing. Part I introduces the problem by examining the limited research that shows a significant underrepresentation of women and people of color in law review leadership positions and by explaining the significance of such research. Part II explores the possible causes of this unfortunate phenomenon by uncovering the challenges that women of color face in obtaining law review leadership positions. Finally, Part III offers potential solutions for increasing opportunities for women of color in obtaining law review leadership positions.
