Law Schools Shouldn't Grub For Rankings (Hartford Courant), by Michael Seringhaus (J.D. 2010, Yale):
In this piece, I discuss the overblown and often alarmist reactions of law school deans to the 2009 U.S. News rankings, published last Friday, in light of the their 2006 open letter to prospective students -- in which law school deans united to caution against over-reliance on those very rankings. I also talk about the shortcomings of the rankings in general, and argue that in the business of running law schools, deans should not defer to the editors at U.S. News.
