How to Rank Law Schools

Brian Leiter

University of Chicago

Indiana Law Journal, Vol. 81, 2006

This paper, submitted to the Indiana University School of Law-Bloomington's Symposium on The Next Generation of Law School Rankings, responds to pieces by Richard Posner, Cass Sunstein, and Russell Korobkin, also submitted to the symposium.

From Professor Leiter's comments:

"Although many of the scholarly critiques of U.S. News in this symposium are devastating, only alternative ranking schemes, that embody academic values we share, will counteract the pernicious impact of U.S. News on legal education."
