10 Most-Cited Law & Philosophy Scholars in the U.S. for the period 2013-2017

Based on the latest Sisk data, here are the ten most-cited law & philosophy 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).  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."
