From New York Law School:

The New York Law School Law Review (NYLS) has issued its 2010–2011 Law Review Diversity Report examining female and minority representation among the membership and leadership, including editors in chief, of general interest law reviews or journals at ABA-accredited law schools. According to the report, law reviews at schools with a high percentage of female full-time faculty and schools with a high percentage of minority full-time faculty had, on average, significantly greater gender diversity among their student membership and leadership, as well as a higher rate of female editors in chief (“EIC”), than law reviews at law schools ranked in the Top 50 by U.S. News & World Report (“U.S. News”). The report is available here.
