UCI Law Faculty Ranks Sixth in

Nation for Scholarly Impact

UCI Law Has Ranked in Top 10 Since Opening in 2009

A new study measuring the scholarly impact of law faculties across the country ranks the University of California, Irvine School of Law sixth in the nation, behind Yale, Harvard, Chicago, New York University and Stanford. Columbia, Duke, Vanderbilt and UC Berkeley rounded out the top 10.

Published by the University of St. Thomas School of Law, the study measured the impact of law faculties based on citations in scholarly journals for the years 2010-2014.

A similar study published in 2012 ranked UCI Law seventh—up from ninth in 2010 and tenth in 2009, when the school opened.

“This is a wonderful reflection of our terrific faculty,” said UCI Law Dean Erwin Chemerinsky. “It again shows that we are creating one of the top law schools in the country.”

This achievement and many other significant milestones at UCI Law would not be possible without your valued support. You have been instrumental in the continued success of the law school.

Thank you!
