A report suggests that liberals are more likely overall to get hired by law schools -- but that prestigious professorships at top institutions are being split fairly evenly between openly liberal and openly conservative candidates. Researchers also found that 60% of law professors did not demonstrate a clearly defined political stance. The study's authors call their findings "encouraging," but suggest that schools should work to eliminate bias and encourage ideological diversity even in low-level appointments.
