A California state auditor’s report on gender and hiring at the University of California was released last week. The report said that during fiscal years from 1995 to 1999, U.C. Berkeley’s Boalt Hall School of Law filled 25 percent of its open faculty positions with women, U.C. Davis School of Law filled 80 percent, and U.C.L.A. School of Law 13 percent. Together, the schools filled nine of 33 faculty positions with female candidates, or 27 percent. In contrast, women made up 41 percent of the doctorate recipients in law nationwide in that period. Hiring data for San Francisco’s Hastings College of the Law was not included in the 111-page report. The report also found that weaknesses in the hiring process — such as the dearth of women on hiring committees — may also contribute to hiring disparities. The search committees for nearly two-thirds of the hires reviewed included either no women or only one woman. At Boalt, one female professor sits on the five-member hiring committee. Female professors were paid on average 90 to 92 percent of what their male counterparts made, but the report stated that factors other than gender may be to blame.
