Why U.S. News and World Report Should Include a Faculty Diversity Index in its Ranking of Law Schools

Why U.S. News and World Report Should Include a Faculty Diversity Index in its Ranking of Law Schools FindLaw columnist and U.C., Davis law professor Vikram Amar, and FindLaw guest columnist and U.C., Davis Dean and law professor Kevin Johnson continue their series (see the first in the series) critiquing the highly influential US News and World Report law school rankings. In a previous column, Amar and Johnson contended that the rankings should take student-body diversity into account; here, they argue that faculty diversity, too, should be a significant factor in the rankings' assessment of law schools' quality, as it contributes to both the quality of education a law school provides its students, and the quality of the law school's faculty's scholarship.
