Top 25 (2016)Most Influential People in Legal Education (2016), The National Jurist (Jan. 2017):

This year's list of the Most Influential People in Legal Education recognizes leaders who are shaping the future of law schools. ... As in years past, we sought nominations from U.S. law schools, narrowed the list to 46 names and then asked the law dean and one randomly selected faculty member from each school to rate the influence of the nominees.

Here are the Top 10. The complete Top 25 list is here.

  1. Erwin Chemerinsky (Dean, UC-Irvine)
  2. Kellye Testy (Dean, University of Washington; 2016 AALS President)
  3. Paul Caron (Professor, Pepperdine)
  4. Bill Henderson (Professor, Indiana)
  5. Brian Leiter (Professor, Chicago)
