Update: Tax Prof Rankings By H-Index Since 2017 (Google Scholar)
Brian Leiter recently ranked the Top 75 law professors by citations as measured by Google Scholar H-Index All. Only two tax professors ranked in the Top 75: Alan Auerbach (#8; UC-Berkeley) and James Hines (#24; Michigan). As Brian notes, many law professors do not have Google Scholar pages and citation counts vary by field. For more on the use of Google Scholar to measure law professor scholarly influence, see Gary Lucas (Texas A&M), Measuring Scholarly Impact: A Guide for Law School Administrators and Legal Scholars, 165 U. Pa. L. Rev. Online 165 (2017).
Here are the Google Scholar H-Index All rankings of the Top 105 U.S. tax professors with Google Scholar pages (data collected on August 5). If you are a full-time law school tax professor with a Google Scholar page and we missed including you, please contact me.
