Chapman law ranks high in new study

September 14, 2010

In a new study evaluating the scholarly impact of law school faculty, Chapman University School of Law ranked #55, well above its #93 spot in the 2011 U.S. News and World Report ranking of the nation’s top law schools.

The report prepared by the University of St.Thomas School of Law compared all of the nation’s American Bar Association-accredited law schools and then ranked the top 70 schools. The report is an expansion of the Brian Leiter Law School Reports which traditionally evaluated the top 25 law schools. Scholarly impact is based largely on faculty citations and academic accomplishments.

“The 70 law faculties ranked in this study have demonstrated concretely a strong collective commitment to legal scholarship,” the report stated.
