Survey of Law School Faculty: Trends in Funding Legal Research & Scholarship (ISBN No:978-157440-465-4 )

This 70+ page study presents data from a survey of 114 law faculty from 60 law schools about the grants and other funds that they have sought or received to support their scholarly efforts.  The report presents detailed data on the amount of funds raised over the past five years, the outlook for funding currently and in the future, sources of funding, topics funded, and much more.  The study also looks at how law school faculty evaluate the help that they receive from law school and general university administration, the law and general university library and other sources.  Data in the report is broken out by many criteria such as title, gender and age of faculty and size and ranking of the law school, among other variables.  Just a few of the report’s many findings are that:

·         The mean cumulative amount of the grants received over the past five years for faculty who had been able to raise money was $109,989 with a median of $50,000.

·         Men received more support than women; men who received any support over the past five years averaged a 5-year cumulative total of $135,529 vs. only $82,853 for women in the same circumstance.

·         Associate and assistant professors spent much more time than full professors chasing money; the former spent 6.22% of their total work time looking for grants or other support; the latter, only 2.88%.
