Revised Listing of Most Cited Legal Scholars by Specialty, 2000-2007

A corrected version of the study is here.  There may be a few more corrections made before Thanksgiving, but I am now fairly confident that the top 10 and top 20 lists are accurate.  For those who think they spot an error, please note that (1) the listings are limited to tenure-stream faculty (so, e.g., emeritus faculty are excluded); (2) the database used was Westlaw JLR; (3) any current search results need to be discounted roughly 6%; (4) citations are for the period 1/1/2000 to the present (meaning early July, when the initial searches were done).

The listing of "the top 15" schools by percentage of faculty on the lists will be revised and back on-line early next week.

Thanks to all those who have sent feedback already.
