Sources at Columbia University have confirmed to JBHE that an offer has been made to Harvard Law School professor Lani Guinier to join the faculty at the Columbia Law School. The planned establishment of a new civil rights law center at Columbia is seen as a development that would be extremely attractive to Professor Guinier whose scholarship focuses on the politics of race and gender.

Professor Guinier joined the Harvard Law School faculty in 1998. She had previously taught at the law school of the University of Pennsylvania.
