"Law porn" and U.S. News Rankings

Here's an interesting piece by Larry Cunningham at St. John's, though as Al Brophy (UNC) notes, the period examined is probably too small to draw meaningful conclusions.  NYU's embarrassingly over-the-top alumni magazines (the ones that inspired the term "law porn") in the 1990s actually coincided with a decline in NYU's reputation scores in U.S. News, a cautionary lesson for all!
