Pacific Legal Foundation Requests Public Documents Concerning University of California Law Journals That Request Race and Gender Information

February 23rd, 2013

The Pacific Legal Foundation has sent requests under the California Public Records Act (the equivalent of FOIA) to the University of California Berkeley and University of California Davis, seeking information about how they use race and gender in making decisions about what articles to publish. You can download the requests here: [UC Davis PRA requestUC Berkeley PRA request.] The letters were sent to the Dean of the law schools, and carbon copied to the Editor in Chief and the Faculty Adviser.


As I noted in my previous post on this topic, these public institutions in California may have some issues with respect to Prop 209.
