Who Are the Most-Downloaded Law Professors? Get the Stats
Social Science Research Network has a site meter of sorts for what legal scholarship is being read through its site and how often.
The top law authors page “is watched for sport,” Lauren Streib writes at Business Insider’s Law Review. The blog pays tribute to the 10 law professors who have had the most downloads in the past year with a slideshow.
These top profs are the only ones whose work has been downloaded more than 15,000 times within the last 12 months:
• Lucian Bebchuk of Harvard Law School. His papers have been downloaded 26,941 times, and his most-downloaded paper is “What Matters in Corporate Governance?” He’s also first on the all-time list with 127,412 downloads.
• Cass Sunstein of Harvard. His papers have been downloaded 20,148 times, and his most-downloaded paper is “Conspiracy Theories.” He’s fourth on the all-time list with 82,910 downloads.
• Daniel Solove of George Washington University Law School. His papers have been downloaded 18,311 times, and his most-downloaded paper is ” ‘I’ve Got Nothing to Hide’ and Other Misunderstandings of Privacy.” He’s second on the all-time list with 119,368 downloads. Solove also contributes to Concurring Opinions and Law & Humanities Blog.
