15 Most-Cited Law & Economics (incl. behavioral L&E) faculty in the U.S. for the period 2013-2017

Based on the latest Sisk data, here are the fifteen most-cited law & economics scholars (including behavioral law & economics) 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). Typically these scholars deploy economic analysis across multiple legal domains.  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."
