Ranking Law Reviews by "Author Prominence"

This, sad to say, has to be the most pointless ranking exercise since the Cooley silliness, one that truly succeeds in conveying no meaningful information.  Is there anyone teaching in a law school in the United States who gives a damn whether a law review has published a President, a Senator, or a celebrity?  Wow!

It's hierarchy of the professions (on pages 575-576) is really pretty funny though.  Did you know that community college professors are only slightly above PhD students?  I didn't.
