14 lateral moves that made law professors "take notice" during 2021-22

Based on my in-box and conversations with others, these were the fourteen moves that transpired this past year that were thought to be the biggest hiring coups (I usually list only ten, but this was a big year for lateral moves that caught people's attention):

 

*Lee Epstein (empirical legal studies, law & social science) from Washington University, St. Louis to the University of Southern California

 

*Jacob Goldin (tax, empirical legal studies, law & economics) from Stanford University to the University of Chicago.

 

*Tara Leigh Grove (federal courts, civil procedure, constitutional law) from the University of Alabama to the University of Texas, Austin.

 

*Woodrow Hartzog (law & technology) from Northeastern University to Boston University.

 

*Richard Hasen (election law, voting rights) from the University of California, Irvine to the University of California, Los Angeles.

 

*Daniel Hemel (tax, intellectual property) from the University of Chicago to New York University.

 

*Tracey Maclin (criminal procedure, constitutional law) from Boston University to the University of Florida, Gainesville.

 

*Thomas W. Mitchell (property, land use, remedies, rural development) from Texas A&M University to Boston College.

 

*Sanjukta Paul (antitrust, labor law) from Wayne State University to University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

 

*Jedediah Purdy (property, environmental law, constitutional law) from Columbia University back to Duke University.

 

*Adriana Z. Robertson (law & finance, corporate & securities law) from the University of Toronto to the University of Chicago.

 

*William M. Sage (health law) from the University of Texas, Austin to Texas A&M University (with joint appointments in law, medicine, and health sciences).

Law professors ranked by h-index (Google Scholar) (CORRECTED)

MOVING TO FRONT FROM AUGUST 1--CORRECTED (just two errors of omission from first version, Bernard Black and Nuno Garoupa)

I recently came across a ranking of 1,000 living chemists (link fixed) based on something like their h-index ("The h-index, or Hirsch index, measures the impact of a particular scientist rather than a journal. 'It is defined as the highest number of publications of a scientist that received h or more citations each while the other publications have not more than h citations each.' For example, a scholar with an h-index of 5 had published 5 papers, each of which has been cited by others at least 5 times" [source, footnote omitted].)  Note that an author can have a lot of citations, but a relatively low h-index, if the author is not very prolific and the other work is not cited much.

Many of the most-cited faculty in the United States do not, alas, have Google Scholar pages (e.g., Erwin Chemerinsky, Richard Epstein, William Eskridge, Thomas Merrill, Catharine MacKinnon, and Martha Nussbaum, among others), and many of them would, I expect, have h-indices that would place them among the top 100 law professors based on the h-index.  As a result, we list below only the "top 75" law professors, among those who who currently have Google Scholar pages, based on their h-index.  (Only law faculty with their primary appointment in the law school were counted.)  Perhaps this little exercise will encourage more law professors to create Google Scholar pages, so in a year or so we'll look at the top 100 (and hopefully most of the 75 below will remain in the top 100.)   The data was collected on July 20, 2022.

Citations practices vary by discipline, and that is reflected in the h-indices of interdisciplinary scholarship in law as well.  Economics, medicine (including medical ethics, or what is usually called "health law" in the legal academy) and psychology are high citation fields, for example, in the sense that every articles cites lots of other literature; history and philosophy are the opposite.

Here are the top 75, below the fold:
