Aren't minorities and women in incredible high demand in the law professor market? I remember a professor at my law school telling me once that the school went out of its way to pursue female and minority \applicants (and especially female minority applicants) - but the most qualified minority and female applicants could be very selective. Couldn't that have played a role at Harvard? (Although I imagine that Harvard, b/c it is Harvard, probably would get the applicants.)

I don’t know that “high demand” is the phrase that I would use, but yes, I think its fair to say that faculty race and gender diversity has been a challenge at many top law schools. But you’re also correct that Harvard has the resources and status to compete well on that front (the letter employs hiring stats at Yale, which has a much smaller faculty, as a comparison point).
