Following up on my previous post, U.S. News FAQ: Law School Scholarly Impact Rankings: U.S. News has updated the FAQ with this new paragraph:
Which faculty will be included in the scholarly impact rankings?
US News is requesting from each law school a list of all fall 2018 full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty. US News is also requesting that each law school identify each of these faculty members as doctrinal faculty, clinicians, librarians, legal writing faculty, or externship instructors. US News is still evaluating whether and how non-doctrinal faculty will be included in the rankings. At the time the rankings are published U.S. News will publish a methodology (see below), including a description of which faculty were included in the scholarly impact analysis.
