Abstract

This paper will be published in Volume 81, Issue 1 of the Indiana Law Journal. The issue publishes papers submitted to the Symposium on the Next Generation of Law School Rankings.

From the article:

"In this article we have suggested that the existence of a single dominant ranker of law schools exacerbates some of the problems created by the rankings and that the development of competing rankings could alleviate these problems."

Keywords: Law School, Business School, rankings, legal education, business education, U.S. News & World Report
