  • These Law Prof Blog Rankings are drawn from Dan Solove's Law Professor Blogger Census, as updated by Colin Miller' Legal Educator Blog 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 (202,064 page views and/or 135,329 visitors).  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., California Appellate Report, Credit Slips, The Deal Professor, Dorf on Law, Feminist Law Professors, InstaPundit, Legal Theory, Point of Law, ProfessorBainbridge.com. 
  • 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 page views, two of the Top 10, six of the Top 25, and ten of the Top 35 blogs; and by visitors, two of the Top 10, six of the Top 25, and ten of the Top 35 blogs.

Comments

The number of visitors appears extremely high, especially compared to number of total hits. Consider that there's roughly 1 million attorneys in the US, and only a few thousand law professors, do you really think the Prawf's Blawg has 750,000 unique visitors? Does Volokh Conspiracy really only have 1.4 hits per every visitor?

Just by comparison, Con Daily right now has a ratio of 8 hits per 1 unique visitor.
