The "Super Lawyers" law school ranking.

Another ranking system. What do you think? Wisconsin is #25.

ADDED: Here's the ranking.

I can't attest to the best, but I've know a few guys from John Marshall in Atlanta, and let's say I'd rather Alberto Gonzales defend me.

On Wisconsin.

I think actual success of the lawyers they produce is a smart way to judge law schools but the fact that their methodology doesn't take into consideration the relative sizes of the law schools undermines the legitimacy of the ranking even though that would be easily fixable. But the fact that its such an obvious problem and so easily fixable further undermines their credibility. I have to assume they left in that flaw because it produced more surprising results, which is key to attracting attention.

Don't you think we need an Althouse poll of the nation's top law schools? Something that takes into account artistic creativity, both in and out of the courtroom?

BTW, any poll that puts my law school in the top five is a good poll, so I have no complaints with the Super Lawyers. I like those who like me.

WV: obiate. Something you say to the child who whines that: "I don't want to be seven any more, I want to be eight."

i'm surprised to see stanford so far down the ranking, considering how many SCOTUS justices they have produced for a relatively small class.

I notice New York University is ranked ahead of Yale.

25th. Haha.

And that "distinguished" school you visited in Brooklyn: 47th.

Ouch.

My alma mater, Texas Law School, fares very well in this ranking -- much better, in fact, than in most other rankings. Its large class size probably accounts for most of that; and many of its graduates go into big city law practices at firms who buy advertisements in the Super Lawyers publications, which probably explains the rest of the difference. (The two schools ranked ahead of Texas, Harvard and Michigan, also are relatively large law schools that tend to feed big city law practices.)

The Super Lawyer rankings themselves are pathetically misleading -- far worse than high school popularity contests.
