...got only 82 applicants, which is surprising. I would have expected higher demand for a three-year paid Fellowship for aspiring law teachers! (The linked article, bizarrely, thinks this is an impressive tally, yet I can't imagine any other "PhD program" at Yale has so few applicants. On why the program is a fake qua PhD program, see the earlier discussion.)
Sorry for being a day late on this; the first comment is also funny.
UPDATE: And in other breaking news, a failed legal academic who refers to legal education tout court as a "scam" complains when someone points out that it is absurd to say getting a law degree is worthless. One can't make this kind of stuff up, as they say.

...but they don't disclose how many responded. Here's the top five according to NJ, some (Tamanaha, Henderson, Chemerinsky etc.) are not surprising. But I trust that Jack Crittenden, the editor, will disclose the actual number of respondents and their breakdown (how many law school deans really replied to the e-mail survey, for example?). I e-mailed him a couple of days ago, but have not yet gotten a response.
UPDATE: Mr. Crittenden reports his "recollection" is that they had "around a 40% response rate," which would be about 140 responses. I've inquired how many of those were actually Deans and faculty, as opposed to bloggers, journalists, etc.
