Washington & Lee’s Law Journal Rankings Updated

Washington and Lee University School of Law Law Library

The library at Washington and Lee School of Law has published the annual update to the Law Journal Rankings.  The rankings are widely used as a tool for scholars to evaluate law reviews and journals during the publication process.  The rankings site was visited over 700,000 times in 2015.

The new rankings reflect a new survey period of 2008-2015.  Users may customize rankings for a selection of journals based on subject area categories, country of publication, and format (print or online) among other options.  Data is available for over 1500 law journals.

Prior surveys are also available and provide longitudinal data on journal citation starting with 2003 and continuing through 2014.

Questions about the law journal rankings project may be directed to Stephanie Miller at millersc@wlu.edu.
