The 10 Most-Cited Tax Faculty

Brian Leiter (Chicago) has announced that he will be releasing an updated ranking of the Ten Most-Cited U.S. Law Faculty in 11 areas of specialization, as measured by citations during the past five years (2009-2013).  He previewed the ranking today by releasing the ten most-cited tax faculty:

In our article, Pursuing a Tax LLM Degree: Where?, Jennifer M. Kowal (Loyola-L.A.), Katherine Pratt (Loyola-L.A.), Theodore P. Seto (Loyola-L.A.) and I used a variation of Leiter's methodology in conducting a citation count study of the faculty in thirteen highly rated graduate tax programs  (pp. 28-29):
