Early Leaders in Top 100 Law Professor Poll

Tuesday, May 11, 2004

As noted earlier on TaxProf Blog, LawTV is running a poll to find "America's 100 most influential law professors." According to the site: "'Influential' is a measure of how large an impact a particular professor has on society. This influence can be, for instance, through academic writings, popular writings, litigation, media appearances, business activities, teaching, lecturing, charitable work, or scholarly impact."

Although such popularity polls tend to be dominated by the Con Law types, I called for unleashing the power of the TaxProf Blogosphere to stuff the ballot box for your favorite tax professors (you can vote for up to 10). The early returns are in, and Harvard, Georgetown, William & Mary, and McGeorge lead the pack (hopefull because of their tax faculty!). My earlier post closed as follows:

The top 250 vote-getters will face off for the "Top 100" title. The site does not mention how the winners will be selected -- perhaps all 250 law professors will be dumped on an island Survivor-like. Or have to face a Simon-like American Idol judge. Anything but a swimsuit competition!

But last week's Tax Prof Undressed post suggests that there is at least one Tax Prof who would fare well in such a competition. Indeed, law student web sites were "suitably" impressed: Topless Tax Prof Teases Students and Topless Law Prof: For Law Student and Mature Law Professors. For a new frontal view, see here.
