This commentary will be published in volume 81, issue 1 of the Indiana Law Journal. The commentary responds to papers submitted to the Symposium on The Next Generation of Law School Rankings held at the Indiana University School of Law-Bloomington.
From the commentary:
"I argue that the underlying problem with the existing rankings regime is the assumption that law schools compete in a single, unified market, and that it is thus appropriate to impose a national ranking on all the schools. I propose that a segmented rankings system, one that is more consistent with the way the market for legal education actually functions, will better serve the relevant constituencies."
