TaxProf Blog: The Most Overrated and Underrated Law Schools: U.S. News v. SSRN

In Ranking Law Schools: Using SSRN to Measure Scholarly Performance, 81 Ind. L.J. 83 (2006), Bernie Black (Northwestern) and I compared the ranking of law schools using U.S. News and SSRN downloads.  In three prior posts, I  updated the chart on pages 98-102, showing the ranking of law schools under U.S. News (overall and peer reputation) and SSRN (recent and all-time downloads).


We are underrated by US News. Which is better than being overrated, I guess. Is it better than being overrated?
