Faculty Quality Based on Per Capita American Academy Membership--Updated for 2012

Here.  Be sure to read the introduction and the caveats.

UPDATE AND CLARIFICATION:  The criterion for inclusion is tenure status on the law faculty, which sometimes results in some surprising inclusions and exclusions.  So, for example, I had mistakenly excluded Larry Kramer, because of his new position, but in fact he will remain a tenured member of the Stanford law faculty for at least the next two years and will do some teaching.  So, too, Richard Epstein is excluded from the Chicago listing, since he is technically emeritus, though he, in fact, teaches here each Spring (indeed, he's teaching two courses this Spring!).   Since it's not possible to monitor who is teaching and who is not, I rely on tenured status as an imperfect proxy for active presence at the school.
