Publication Study of Faculty at Non-Top 50 Law Schools

Roger Williams University School of Law has updated its per capita publication study of the faculties at law schools ranked outside the U.S. News Top 50.  The study covers the 1993-2010 period and uses methodology developed by Brian Leiter, with one change: although Brian focused exclusively on the Top 20 journals, this study examines the Top 50 journals, defined as the general law reviews published by the 54 schools receiving the highest U.S. News peer assessment scores (2.8 or higher), plus an additional 13 journals that appear in the Top 50 of the Washington & Lee Law Journal Combined Rankings. (See here for an alphabetical listing of those journals.)

Roger Williams ranks the Top 40 Non-Top 50 law schools.  Here are the Top 25:

But what about the top 50 non-top 40? And the top 30 non-top 60? There's a good article in the New Yorker this week about how all this rankings are, well, baloney.
