Law Quadrangle (formerly Law Quad Notes)


A new ranking system explores 'intellectual super-spreaders'. A new model for determining the influence of law schools looks at the links between where law professors received their J.D. and where they go on to teach law. The model, which uses a mixture of social network analysis and computer simulation, shows how a handful of elite institutions are likely influencing legal principles and attitudes across the country. Michigan Law ranks third in the study.
