The number of women among a newly compiled list of the”ten most cited”law faculty members is zero.

Post to Twitter

List is here, as compiled by Brian Leiter. For a number of reasons I think it would be useful to have a list of the “ten most cited” women law faculty members, more on this later.

    Ann–this is a great idea. You ought to put that list together.

    Suzanna Sherry (Vanderbilt) is not on Leiter’s list, despite having a higher number of hits (on westlaw with the Leiter search criteria) than the scholars listed.

  3. Ann Bartow says:

    Al,
    Leiter beat me to it! I’ll get his list up here soon.

    jaebersole,
    I’m sure Leiter will double-check his data if requested to do so.

  4. Ann Bartow says:

    Update: jaebersole, for the 2005-200 period of Leiter’s study, Suzanna Sherry is not in the top ten among women law profs, though she certainly gets cited a whole lot.

    As just an interested party, I couldn’t help noticing the all American make-up of the list(s). Is there a list that includes international law schools and profs.? Don’t spend any time on this, just wondering is all.

    Whoops. For some reason I thought it was 2000-2009. Thanks for correcting me.
