Law Prof Blog Rankings

Below are the updated quarterly traffic rankings (visitors and page views) of the leading blogs edited by law professors with publicly available SiteMeters for the most recent 12-month period (April 2007 - March 2008):

Blog_traffic_04070308

  • These Law Prof Blog Rankings are drawn from Dan Solove's comprehensive Law Professor Blogger Census. They include all blogs edited by law professors -- both law-related and non law-related.
  • Please email me the names of any Law Prof Blogs with traffic over the past twelve months that would qualify for inclusion on the lists (82,141 visitors and/or 125,333 page views).  If necessary, I will re-publish the list to include all qualifying blogs.
  • Several popular Law Prof Blogs do not have publicly available SIteMeters and thus are not included on the list:  e.g., BlackProf, California Appellate Reports, Credit Slips, The Deal Professor, Dorf on Law, Feminist Law Professors, Harvard Law School Corporate Governance Blog, Legal Theory, Point of Law, The Right Coast.
  • The list includes only those Law Prof Blogs that have been in operation for at least a year (and thus does not include popular blogs such as The Faculty Lounge, Leiter's Legal Philosophy Blog, M&A Law Prof Blog, and Race to the Bottom).
  • These rankings cover only those blogs edited by law professors.  Other law-related blogs edited by practitioners, librarians, non-law school academics, and journalists are not included on this list:  e.g., Above the Law, How Appealing, Law Librarian Blog, Wall Street Journal Law Blog.
  • Members of our Law Professor Blogs Network comprise, by visitors, two of the Top 10, five of the Top 20, and eleven of the Top 35 blogs; and by page views, one of the Top 10, five of the Top 20, and eleven of the Top 35 blogs.

What a pity that your profession is dominated by blogs from the likes of Instapundit, Hugh Hewitt, and Althouse. Not only are these mediocre minds, they are limited, uninteresting human beings to boot.

Of course, this is traffic, and not quality, but if I were a lawyer, I would be promoting better quality blogs.
