TOP PRODUCERS OF LAW TEACHERS AT THE LEADING LAW SCHOOLS SINCE 1995
January 31, 2011

This study identifies the law school alma mater (J.D. only) of tenure-stream academic faculty at 43 leading law faculties who graduated since 1995.  Faculty lists are current for 2010-11.    “Leading” law faculties were defined as those that are either in the top 35 in the academic reputation surveys conducted by U.S. News & World Report and/or in the top 35 in the scholarly impact studies I have produced.   The study was limited to graduates since 1995 in order to try to capture a current picture of where leading law faculties are looking for their new talent.  (A broader picture, both temporally and in terms of the range of schools considered, is given here.)  The study was limited to the “leading” law faculties on the theory that these schools were (1) likely to be the best judges of scholarly talent, and (2) likely to be able to hire the best scholarly talent.

The law faculties included in the study were:

Yale University University of California, Irvine
Harvard University University of California, Hastings
University of Chicago Boston University
Stanford University University of California, Davis
Columbia University University of Arizona
New York University Boston College
University of California, Berkeley University of Notre Dame
University of Michigan, Ann Arbor University of Colorado, Boulder
University of Virginia University of Iowa
University of Pennsylvania University of North carolina
Duke University University of Wisconsin, Madison
Georgetown University College of William & Mary
Northwestern University George Mason University
University of Texas, Austin Ohio State University
Cornell University Indiana University, Bloomington
University of California, Los Angeles Washington & Lee University
Vanderbilt University Florida State University
University of Southern California Fordham University
Emory University University of San Diego
University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign Cardozo Law School/Yeshiva University
University of Minnesota, Twin Cities Washington University in St. Louis
George Washington University  

The ranking, below, includes all schools with at least three graduates on the faculties at these 43 schools.  The “per capita” [sic] rate is really the total number of graduates in law teaching at these schools divided by average recent class size (rounded to the nearest 25); it is thus not a true per capita measure, but a useful tool for comparing the success rate of different school graduates.  It, of course, confirms what one would have expected:  Yale graduates have roughly three times the rate of success as graduates of Harvard, Stanford, and Chicago; while graduates of those latter three schools have at least three times the rate of success of graduates of Berkeley, Columbia, Michigan et al.  The groupings are meant to reflect roughly ‘peer’ schools in terms of placement success; students thinking of law teaching careers should choose among “peer” schools in terms of their special strengths in the student’s areas of interest.

A ranking based on just the 18 leading law faculties--Yale, Harvard, Chicago, Stanford, Columbia, NYU, Berkeley, Michigan, Virginia, Penn, Duke, Georgetown, Texas, Cornell, Northwestern, UCLA, Vanderbilt, Southern California—yields similar results; this ranking is confined to schools with at least two graduates on the faculties of these 18 schools. Note that five of UVA’s seven alumni at these schools are teaching at UVA itself. Schools hiring their own graduates accounted for a smaller portion of the numbers at other schools, but still was non-trivial: 3 of Stanford’s 16 are at Stanford; 3 of Chicago’s 15 are at Chicago; 2 of Columbia’s 7 are at Columbia; 2 of NYU’s 5 are at NYU; 1 of Michigan’s 4 is at Michigan.
