Most Cited Legal Scholars by Specialty, 2000-2007

Brian Leiter has posted his revised listing of most
cited legal scholars by speciality, 2000- 2007.

In each specialty, the list gives the “ten most cited”
or “twenty most cited” faculty (for larger areas).
On his web page, Leiter explains that the list
is not exhaustive, but concentrates on areas that are
"well-defined or especially important/prominent, and
sometimes both. "

These listings are drawn from the data collected in
July 2007 about citations to faculty since the year
2000 that were incorporated into the
Ranking of Law Schools by Scholarly Impact (released
on September 1, 2007.)
