Listed below are links to weblogs that reference The 25 Most Influential People in Legal Education:


The magazine "asked 350 people in legal education, including, every law school dean, to rate each nominee based on how much they influenced them in the past 12 months." You'd expect that the elite schools would not place well on that kind of survey, since the elite schools aren't part of the reform movement.

How was this list put together? WHY no Yale, Columbia, etc etc on the list??

Interesting. No HLS, Yale, Columbia, Penn, Cornell, or Stanford. Poor old Dean Langdell is rolling over.

I don't think any of these people will have any lasting influence.

Harrumph! Obviously not an authoritative list, as Caron is omitted.
