Replication of mismatch research: Ayres, Brooks and Ho

Richard Sander

International Review of Law and Economics, 2019, vol. 58, issue C, 75-88

Abstract: Perhaps the two best known critiques of the “law school mismatch” hypothesis are one jointly authored by Ian Ayres and Richard Brooks, and another by Daniel Ho. This article attempts to both reproduce and replicate these studies, and finds neither holds up well. Ayres and Brooks make outright errors in their analysis which, when corrected, reverse their results. All three authors make indefensible methodological choices that, when modified in logical ways, either support the law school mismatch hypothesis or leave it untouched.
