Harvard Law School's statement on its withdrawal from the USNews.com rankings
I noted yesterday that both Yale and Harvard were withdrawing from the USNews.com charade. Here is Dean Manning's statement on HLS's decision.
If over the next week, most of the other top 10-20 law schools withdraw, USNews.com will be in trouble. It would undoubtedly be excellent for legal education if its current master were dethroned: schools could resume making all decisions--from admissions to expenditures--based solely on academic considerations. I recently mentioned three scenarios that might finish off USNews.com, but I hadn't thought of this one!
