    David Bernstein at the Volokh Conspiracy, Law School Rankings and the Wisdom of Crowds

    For that matter, consider how U.S. News ranked part-time programs–it sent out a survey asking professors and deans to list fifteen schools with outstanding part-time programs. I am rather confident that no more than a tiny percentage of those who responded to this question are familiar with the particularities of different schools’ part-time programs. Unlike some of our worthy competitors, for example, at George Mason (ranked 5th in the part-time rankings) ALL tenured and tenure-track professors teach in the evening, and evening students are eligible for all students activities including law review. I can’t imagine why a professor at, say, Valparaiso Law School, would be aware of such details, but U.S. News didn’t bother to even attempt to take such factors into account.

    I don’t know much of anything about the methodology USNWR used for the part-time rankings but I was hoping it was more than “list fifteen schools with outstanding part-time programs”
