Empirical Study of Legal Scholarship
Posted by Funmi

I'm working with Ken Dau-Schmidt, Bill Henderson and Andy Morriss on an empirical study of legal scholarship. We are creating a relational database about legal scholarship and are using this database to ask (and hopefully answer) a number of questions about legal scholarship. In this project, we will look at changes in the nature and content of legal scholarship, including assessing trends toward interdisciplinary scholarship. We are also planning to measure the impact of letterhead bias, assess the influence of “outsider” voices in legal scholarship and evaluate other aspects of the characteristics of authors of law review articles. As part of this project, we are also planning to evaluate the impact of legal scholarship by looking at citations to law review articles. What questions would you like to see explored in a project of this nature?
