Twenty Most-Cited Constitutional & Public Law Faculty in the United States, 2010-2014 (inclusive) (corrected as of May 31)

Once again, this draws on the data from the 2015 Sisk study.  I have included here some scholars whose work straddles constitutional and administrative law (e.g., Sunstein, Vermeule), but I will do a separate listing that will include administrative law scholars with little or no general constitutional law work in their profile.  As with all these listings, only non-emeritus faculty at U.S. law schools are included.
