15 Most-Cited Law & Social Science (excluding economics) faculty in the U.S. for the period 2013-2017 (UPDATED AND CORRECTED)

 Based on the latest Sisk data, here are the fifteen most-cited law & social science (excluding economics) faculty in the U.S. for the period 2013-2017 (inclusive) (remember that the data was collected in late May of 2018, and that the pre-2018 database did expand a bit since then).  This is meant to capture scholars who work under the "law & society" rubric and/or who deploy methodologies from psychology, sociology, political science and anthropology to law, including empirical legal studies scholars.  Numbers are rounded to the nearest five.    Faculty for whom 75% or more of their citations (based on a sample) are in this area are listed; others with less than 75% of their citations in this field (but still a plurality) are listed in the category of "other highly cited scholars who work partly in this area."  

The updates and changes incorporate the Sichelman data for multi-author articles which affected many faculty here, including Rachlinski, Hoffman, Guthrie, Heise and Braman.
