Law school achieves high scores in new national study
A new report evaluating the impact of the scholarship produced by the faculty of Americaʻs top law schools places the William S. Richardson School of Law in 52nd place in the nation on the strength of law journal citations to publications by its faculty.
The Scholarly Impact Study, conducted by four professors at the University of St. Thomas School of Law in Minnesota, ranks the top third of all ABA-accredited law schools.
Principal author Gregory C. Sisk notes that the University of Hawaiiʻs Law School has achieved Scholarly Impact Scores “well above the rankings assigned by U.S. News.” Sisk also says that the law faculties ranked in the study “have concretely demonstrated a collective commitment to legal scholarship.”
“We are gratified that the important scholarly work of our faculty is widely recognized,” said Richardson Law School Dean Avi Soifer. “On the other hand, this study does not include books and chapters published by law faculty members and our Law School has a particularly distinguished record in that category as well.”
The study cites 10 Richardson Law School faculty members for their outstanding scholarly work and law journal citations—Denise Antolini, Hazel Beh, David Callies, Linda Krieger, Charles Lawrence, III, Justin Levinson, Mari Matsuda, Jill Ramsfield, Avi Soifer and Eric Yamamoto.
