Law, Medicine and Health Care Scholarly Impact Ranking

 

Top 101 Law, Medicine and Health Care Scholars

This ranking captures the scholarly impact, based on citations, of the Top 101 Law, Medicine and Health Care Scholars in the United States (2010-2014). It relies on faculty’s own self-identification, based on membership in the Section on Law, Medicine and Health Care of the Association of American Law Schools.  It follows the methodology used by Brian Leiter and Greg Sisk, explained more fully in Sisk, et al., Scholarly Impact of Law School Faculties in 2015: Updating the Leiter Score Ranking for the Top Third, 12 Univ. St. Thomas L. J. 100 (2015).

The ranking was compiled using citations for every Section member listed in the 2017-18 AALS guide and was created from original research performed by Michael Whitlow, Graduate Assistant, and Heather Simmons, Law and Business Reference Librarian at the Albert E. Jenner, Jr. Memorial Law Library at the University of Illinois College of Law.  These citation counts do not include acknowledgement footnotes, only substantive citations. We separately calculate the impact of emeritus faculty who remain involved in the Section.

Unlike other rankings, the Top 101 Law, Medicine and Health Care Scholars ranking does not rely on subjective assessments by colleagues of a faculty’s primary field of scholarship; it allows faculty to self-identify.  By its nature, it includes faculty who work in multiple areas.  As with other rankings, it relies on Westlaw citations and therefore undercounts a scholar’s citation in journals not available through Westlaw.
