Wake Forest Law faculty move up eight spots on 2018 Scholarly Impact Score ranking

Members of the Wake Forest Law faculty have moved up eight spots on the “Scholarly Impact of Law School Faculties in 2018: Updating the Leiter Score Ranking for the Top Third“ by Gregory C. Sisk (St. Thomas) et al.

The updated 2018 study explores the scholarly impact of law faculties, ranking the top third of American Bar Association (ABA)-accredited law schools. Refined by Brian Leiter, the “Scholarly Impact Score” for a law faculty is calculated from the mean and the median of total law journal citations over the past five years to the work of tenured faculty members. In addition to a school-by-school ranking, it reports the mean, median, and weighted score, along with a listing of the tenured law faculty members at each school with the 10 highest individual citation counts.

According to the new ranking, Wake Forest faculty members whose scholarship had the most impact in 2018 are: Jonathan Cardi, Kami Chavis, Michael Curtis, Michael Green, Mark Hall, John Knox, Alan Palmiter, Gregory Parks, Sid Shapiro, Margaret Taylor, and Ron Wright. Continue reading »
