Harvard Law School, Stanford Law School and Columbia Law School top a new list ranking law reviews. Yale Law Journal is in the No. 8 spot on the list, behind the law reviews of the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Michigan, the University of California-Los Angeles and the University of Texas, in that order. A TaxProf Blog post provides a list of the top 25 law schools according to the Google Law Review Rankings.
Meanwhile, Robert Anderson IV of Pepperdine University School of Law has taken the concept one step further, using data supplied by Google, in a November 2012 blog post on WITNESSETH, to list the top law review articles published between 2007 and 2011.
In the No. 1 spot on that list is "Frontiers of Intellectual Property: Patent Holdup and Royalty Stacking." It was published in 2007 by Texas Law Review.
