U.S. News Launches Law Firm Rankings

U.S. News Logo U.S. News & World Report announced today that it will team with Best Lawyers to start ranking law firms:

The venture will kick off with an announcement sent to more than 35,000 lawyers across the United States, followed by a detailed survey that will be conducted this fall.

The U.S. News/Best Lawyers Law Firm rankings will evaluate more than 3,000 law firms across the United States using a wide range of objective data as well as individual assessments from more than 40,000 private practice lawyers, 20,000 clients, and thousands of law firm employees. ...

The law firm rankings will be featured on USNews.com. Starting this fall, the site will also host Best Lawyers' search engine, which contains profiles of 51,315 individual lawyers worldwide, covering 78 legal specialties and based on more than 4.2 million evaluations of leading lawyers by their peers at the top of the legal profession.

Given that amazon.com alone exceeded its previous decade of sales in a scant day or so of his death, I'd say the estate has been sizeably boosted already.

It seems only fair that law school professors ought to be surveyed as well, since lawyers are surveyed for the law school rankings.
