Leiter's Law School Rankings, http://www.leiterrankings.com/

This site provides law school rankings in five categories:

  1. Newest Rankings: the latest 2005 rankings (Faculty Quality Rankings: Scholarly Impact (Citations) and Student Quality Rankings)
  2. Faculty Rankings: scholarly quality (reputation, productivity, and impact) and teaching quality
  3. Student Rankings: student quality (LSAT scores and undergraduate GPAs)
  4.  Job Placement: placement of students at elite law firms, as well as listings of where faculty went to law school and Supreme Court clerkships
  5. U.S. News Rankings: discussions of the U.S. News & World Report Law School Rankings and how the rankings on this site differ from U.S. News

In addition the Archives contain "Educational Quality Rankings of U.S. Law Schools" from earlier years and "Links" connect to law review articles on law school rankings in sources such as SSRN, Hein Online, and Westlaw.
