OpinioJuris has an interesting ranking of the most popular law blogs based on traffic reports on The Truth Laid Bare. These traffic stats are imperfect, as they do not cover some popular law blogs (e.g., Legal Theory Blog, The Right Coast, The Becker-Posner Blog) and they do not measure RSS feeds.
The OpinioJuris list excludes blogs by law profs "that are not true law blogs" (e.g., InstaPundit, Hugh Hewitt, Althouse), as well as "those blogs that straddle the fence" (e.g., Is That Legal?). I thought it would be interesting to rank law blogs by law professors, so I excluded law blogs by practitioners on OpinioJuris's list (How Appealing, ACS Blog, Appellate Law & Practice, Southern California Law Blog, Crim Law), and corrected a few mistakes and omissions:
We are, of course, thrilled to be ranked #5, but are even more delighted that five of the fourteen most popular law prof blogs are part of our Law Professor Blogs Network.
