I’ll go out and a limb and say that as Research Dean at Pitt, I think that Paul Caron’s “Google Rank” list of U.S. law schools is more than a curiosity.Â Is it too much of a stretch to suggest that a school’s Google Rank is one very crude measure of the impact that its faculty, students, and alumni are having?
Harvard, Yale, and Stanford occupy the top three spots.Â In a modest surprise, the University of North Dakota School of Law pops up at number 11.Â (By linking to UND, do I help keep the school aloft?)Â Perhaps UND has a remarkable impact in the Peace Garden State.
Updated 11/07/07:Â Al Brophy suggests running this search in Google:Â “”law school” OR “school of law” OR “college of law” OR â€œlaw centerâ€ site:.edu”
Georgia State floats to number 4!
