    Due to myriad economic and social factors, the racial, ethnic, and gender composition of law students has become more diverse across the nation. Similarly, the demographics of law faculty have shifted, albeit at a slower pace, toward more racial and gender diversity. In 2009, the Association of American Law Schools estimated that thirty-two percent of law professors are women and twenty-eight percent are racial and ethnic minorities. How does such increased diversity affect the law school classroom? More specifically, what does it mean for law school pedagogy? This panel explores how law faculty are responding to these demographic shift
