    Might one solution be for all votes to be public? Or do you think that any ranking system that relies on subjective, black box type voting is suspect? I think Leiter’s Canada rankings are incorporate the latter assumption, though they have their own shortcomings.

    Public might help overcome the moral hazard but it does not overcome the lack of interest by USN&WR in doing anything more than collecting opinions from people who often know little. At least they could use a Leiter-like citation per faculty member in the area of specialization or articles per faculty member for non LLM programs. For LLMs, there could be all of the above plus GPAs of entering students and so on.
