This blog reports on a study categorizing the writing in Harvard Law Review and arguing that Environmental Law is a "strong sell," in other words, there will be a bear market for environmental law professors for the foreseeable future. A fun piece -- but one that may adversely influence students interested in teaching and in environmental law.
The most obvious methodological flaw (apart from choosing Harvard Law Review as her standard) is that Harvard doesn't have much of an environmental law program. I would expect a significant link between the quality of Harvard's environmental program (??????) and the likelihood that top students with an interest in environmental law will go to Harvard and edit the Law Review.
