The Declining Market for Tax Profs

Tax Prof Sarah Lawsky (UC-Irvine) slices and dices the data on law school hiring of entry level faculty.  Interestingly, only three of the 117 entry level tax hires are Tax Profs -- all from NYU.  As Sarah admits, her data are incomplete as they are limited to self-reported hires.  I listed a fourth entry level tax hire in my post on Tax Prof Moves, 2013-14.

Here are the U.S. law school data on entry level and lateral tax hires for the ten years I have been reporting on Tax Prof Moves:

Surely, being academics, we should dig deeper. Is the percentage of tax hires relative to total hires declining? If so, why?
