Why Are (Almost All of) the Most-Cited Legal Academics White Men?

On Wednesday, Brian Leiter posted a list of the ten most-cited legal scholars during the years 2009-2013 (really eleven, due to a tie for tenth place). All eleven are men, and to the best of my knowledge, 10/11 are white. Following in the footsteps of other contributors’ “Where are the Women” posts, I’ve written a post at my personal blog considering possible explanations for the disparity. I thought I’d link to it here in case it’s of interest to readers of this blog.
