DePaul University College of Law ranks highly in a recent faculty productivity study measuring scholarly output in top law journals.
The study, conducted by Roger Williams University School of Law, provides updated data to assess the strength of scholarly research by schools that fall outside the U.S. News & World Report top 50. Applying the methodology used by Professor Brian Leiter to measure faculty publications in top legal journals, the study is the basis for "Per Capita Productivity of Articles in Top Journals, 1993-2011: Law Schools Outside the U.S. News Top 50." Roger Williams law faculty completed the study in academic year 2011-2012 and included law schools that are ABA-accredited, Association of American Law Schools members, and below the 50th spot in the 2012 U.S. News rankings.
