U.S. courts becoming more diverse

UCF Political Science Professor Dr. Drew Lanier, together with Dr. Mark Hurwitz (Western Michigan University), published “Judicial Diversity in Federal Courts: A Historical and Empirical Exploration” in the journal Judicature.

The authors examine the background characteristics of US Supreme Court and Courts of Appeals judges. The results show that both levels of courts are becoming more diverse and generally reflect national trends in the population.
