Funding for this research was received from Berkeley Law School, and also from the Law School Admission Council (LSAC). The opinions and conclusions are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the positions or policy of the LSAC. Funding assistance was also provided by the Wallace Alexander Gerbode Foundation, the Hanson Bridgett law firm, Drucilla Stender Ramey, and Martha Faye Africa. We were ably assisted by graduate student researchers Jamie Clark and Eunice Chang, Ph.D. as well as by law students including William Kidder, Nicole Thomas, Chhunny Chhean, Sarah London, Aubrie Dillon, Sarah Sobrahoff, and Shelby Myers. We are grateful to Deans Herma Hill Kay and Chris Edley of Berkeley, and to Associate Dean Shauna Marshall of Hastings College of the Law for their support of this study. Many staff and administrators at both schools provided vital help. We are especially grateful to Louise Epstein, Joey Plaster, and Ed Tom at Berkeley; and Gina Barnett at Hastings for their hard work facilitating the study. We have benefited from the commentary and suggestions of participants in many faculty workshops, conference settings, and bar gatherings over the years. We are also indebted to the members of our National Advisory Board for nearly eight years of service: Kelly Brown, David Chambers, Phoebe Haddon, Thelton Henderson, Leaetta Hough, Robert Nelson, Beth Cobb O'Neil, Pilar Ossorio, James Outtz, Paul Sackett, and Garner Weng.
