USF School of Law jumped ten spots — one of the largest increases this year — in the ranking of ABA-accredited law schools using the Leiter Score, which explores the scholarly impact of law faculties.

USF School of Law was 54th out of all ABA-accredited law schools. In addition to ranking schools for total law journal citations over the past five years, the report recognizes the top ten tenured professors at each school with the most citations. Below, meet USF's top ten faculty scholars as identified in the report.

“The Scholarly Impact Ranking is a well-respected assessment of the scholarly contributions of legal scholars across the country,” said Associate Dean for Faculty Scholarship and Professor Tristin Green. “By studying how our scholarship builds through citations, we are given a sense of one key measure of our scholarly impact. We are proud of the excellent scholarship and strong scholarly community at USF Law. This ranking gives us further reason to believe that we are making a difference.”
