Law School Ranked 26th in the Nation for Most-Cited Faculty Scholarship

The Brooklyn Law School faculty has been ranked 26th in the nation in terms of most-cited tenured law school faculty, according to Brian Leiter’s Law School Reports, which issued the list in August. The other New York law schools in the top rankings are Cornell, Columbia, and NYU.

“This ranking is further recognition of the tremendous influence of our faculty scholars,” said Dean Nick Allard. “They are engaged in important research and law reform that shapes and advances critical legal and policy issues. We take immense pride in the enduring impact of their scholarship on the law and society.”

Last year, the faculty placed 33rd on another Leiter list that ranked law schools based on their “scholarly impact ratings,” referring to citations from 2010 to 2014.

Leiter’s Law School Reports also recently recognized three faculty members among the most highly cited in the nation in their areas of expertise: Professor Anita Bernstein in Torts and Products Liability; Professor Elizabeth Schneider in Feminist Legal Theory, and Professor Alex Stein in Evidence.
