TOP 70 LAW FACULTIES IN SCHOLARLY IMPACT, 2007-2011
July 2012

            Professor Gregory Sisk and his colleagues in the law library at the University of St. Thomas (Minnesota) have used the methodology of my prior scholarly impact studies to produced an updated study of the 70 law faculties with the highest scholarly impact, based on both average and median impact as measured by citations.   Professor Sisk and his colleagues give a detailed explanation of the project here; I also encourage those utilizing this information to note the caveats I have highlighted previously.

            The ranking below weights the mean score for twice as much as the median; the final column on the right lists the ten most-cited faculty.  I have more comments on how to interpret the results here.
