    Two points:

    One, the slating of the Symposium Issue of the UCLA Law Review is done not by the Law Review staff but by the faculty.

    Two, this symposium was on the Second Amendment. It’s my understanding that this topic tends to be dominated by a small group of legal scholars. I would not blame the Law Review or the faculty for any gender imbalances here.

    Really? I had no idea! Asshole.

    Many of the articles listed in the ToC are written by people who do NOT have any particularly notable record of previous Second Amendment scholarship. So the field was pretty open, and more women could have easily, and without any quality dilution, have been included.
