Updates to the Law Professor Blogger Census

posted by Daniel J. Solove

I have updated the law professor blogger census. Although I attempted to keep the same URL, since the updated post is in a new month, the URL got changed automatically and thus links to the earlier versions of the census will be broken. Please update your links to this new updated census URL, as the link to the old version will now lead to nowhere.

With the capable assistance of our intern, Sam Yospe, plus comments from readers, I have not only added new bloggers but have also attempted to purge the rolls of "deadwood" and retired bloggers -- those bloggers who have abandoned the blogosphere but whose names linger on. I eliminated all bloggers who hadn't blogged in the past four months -- since April 1.

The results were quite surprising -- there are a ton of deadwood and retired bloggers, so many that the numbers for the census actually dropped this time. As I explain in the census post, the number of law professor bloggers probably didn't drop, as the numbers of previous censuses were also inflated by deadwood and retired bloggers.

I'm off to London Monday afternoon, so unfortunately, I will not be able to do much else on the census for a few weeks. My posting will be very light to non-existent during this time. I'll be doing research on how little value the US dollar really has these days.

Law Professor Blogger Census (2007 Version)

posted by Daniel J. Solove

census.jpgNEW VERSION 2007

UPDATED VERSION: This is an updated version of the 2007 census. With feedback from readers plus the assistance of our intern, Sam Yospe, I have added a number of bloggers we missed. I also did something that has not been done on previous censuses – I deleted "deadwood" bloggers and retired bloggers – those on group or solo blogs who haven’t posted in the past 4 months (since April 1)

The culling from deadwood and retired bloggers from the census has resulted in a decrease in the number of bloggers since the last census. Because previous versions didn’t seek to eliminate deadwood bloggers, the chart of the blogosphere’s growth is potentially misleading. I believe that the legal blogosphere did grow since the last census, as I assume that there were many retired or deadwood bloggers on the rolls of previous censuses that inflated the numbers.

A quick plea to those running active group blogs – please update the names of your bloggers, as not doing so makes tallying the census quite difficult. I would be very thankful – and more so than me, our intern who painstakingly checked to see who was actively blogging and who was not.

I used to do the census bi-annually, but the law professor blogosphere has stabilized sufficiently to do this annually. This version of the census incorporates changes to the law professor blogosphere made after the last census was completed in October 2006.

I would like to thank our intern, Sam Yospe, who provided much-needed assistance with this project.

Earlier Versions of the Census:

2005 -- In June 2005, there were 130 bloggers (28 female, 102 male). By In November 2005, there were 202 bloggers (50 female, 152 male).

2006 -- In March 2006, there were 235 law professor bloggers (58 female, 177 male). By October 2006, the number had grown to 309 law professor bloggers (74 female, 235 male).

NEW 2007 STATS:

Number: There are 308 law professor bloggers.

Growth: Since the last census in October 2006, there are 76 new bloggers and 30 departed bloggers, increasing the blogosphere from 309 bloggers to 354 bloggers – an increase of about 15%. However, a search of the group blogs and individual blogs turned up 47 deadwood bloggers who have not posted since April 1. This decreases the total legal blogosphere to 308 bloggers.

chart-bloggers-2007 3.jpg

Gender: Of the bloggers, 76 are female and 232 are male. Thus, about 25% are female and 75% are male. There has been a small increase in the percentage of female bloggers since the last census (24% were female and 76% were male in October 2006.)

chart-gender-2007 3.jpg

Schools: Schools with the most bloggers include:
Chicago (8)
GW (8)
San Diego (8)
George Mason (6)
Georgetown (6)
Illinois (6)
Temple (6)
Temple (6)
William Mitchell (6)
Baylor (5)
UC Davis (5)
Cincinnati (5)
Pittsburgh (5)
St. Thomas (5)
Villanova (5)
Wayne State (5)

Schools making their first appearance on the census include: Arkansas-Little Rock, Connecticut, Baylor, Boston College, Charleston, Denver, Hawaii, Indiana-Indianapolis, New England, Oregon, and USC.

Schools in the U.S. News Top 25 rankings account for 75 bloggers
1. Yale (3)
2. Harvard (6)
2. Stanford (2)
4. NYU (1)
5. Columbia (1)
6. Chicago (8)
6. Pennsylvania (0)

22. Emory (2)
22. GW (8)
24. Iowa (3)
25. Fordham (3)
25. Illinois (6)
25. W&L (1)

The Top 25 schools have a disproportionately large representation in the blogosphere--24% of the total number of bloggers (308). Four schools in the Top 25 have no bloggers – Pennsylvania, Virginia, Vanderbilt, and Boston University.

In the chart that follows, I indicate new bloggers with NEW. Since the chart has grown too large for a single blog post, I had to cut the chart in half. The chart below the fold consists of schools beginning with the letters A-M. For the second half of the chart, schools N-Z, click here.

Deadwood Bloggers

posted by Daniel J. Solove

deadwood1.jpgHaving just compiled the census, I'm running into a difficulty. On several large group blogs, there are professors listed on the sidebar who have barely, if ever, made a post. This is especially true for large institutional blogs. The Georgetown Law Faculty Blog has only about 20 posts in all of 2007, mainly by Rebecca Tushnet and Randy Barnett, both of whom primarily blog elsewhere. However, there are 16 professors listed in the sidebar as authors. the University of Chicago Law School's Faculty Blog has much more activity, as it is regularly updated, but it has 20 professors on the sidebar with only a fraction posting with any degree of regularity. This makes it difficult to tally the census, because these names on the sidebar -- what I will call "deadwood bloggers" -- are distorting the statistics in the census. In some sense, it is false advertising -- the sidebar space is typically used for regular bloggers, but many blogs leave up names no matter how often a professor posts or no matter if a professor even posts at all.

I've asked Sam Yospe, our intern, to compile a list of deadwood bloggers. As a definition, I would list bloggers who haven't posted in the past two months (since May 31). Is two months a fair threshold? The difficulty with requiring a longer amount of time is that it makes it harder to tally, as under the definition I propose, it requires going through two months of a blog's postings. The problem with a shorter period of time is that it will eliminate a few professors who blog on very infrequent intervals -- the occasional bloggers. So I think that two months is a fair time period. What do readers think? If anyone can send me names of professors on the census who haven't blogged in the past two months, that would be very helpful. When the final version of the census comes out, they'll be purged from the rolls. Unlike law faculties, there is no tenure in the blogosphere . . . or at least, not in my census.

Law Professor Blogger Census (Version 5.1)

posted by Daniel J. Solove

census.jpgNEW VERSION 5.1

UPDATED VERSION: Thanks to all who have sent in corrections and additions. The new tallies are below. There are now over 300 law professor bloggers!

It’s time again for the semi-annual census of law professor bloggers. A lot has happened in the blogosphere since the last census (Version 4.3) was completed in March 2006.

Earlier Versions of the Census: In Version 2.0 (June 2005), there were 130 bloggers (28 female, 102 male), and schools with the largest number of bloggers included: San Diego (7), UCLA (5), George Mason (5), Cincinnati (4), Ohio State (4), GW (3), Georgetown (3), Stanford (3), St. Thomas (3), Chapman (3), Villanova (3).

In Version 3.1 (November 2005), there were 202 bloggers (50 female, 152 male), and schools with the largest number of bloggers included: Chicago (14); UCLA (7); San Diego (7); GW (5); Cincinnati (5); George Mason (5); Stanford (4); Northwestern (4); Ohio State (4); U.C. Davis (4); American (4); Case Western (4); St. John's (4).

In Version 4.3 (March 2006), there were 235 law professor bloggers (58 female, 177 male), and schools with the largest number of bloggers included: Chicago (15); San Diego (7); GW (6); Illinois (6); UCLA (6); George Mason (5); and William Mitchell (5)

NEW VERSION 5.0 STATS:

Number: There are 309 law professor bloggers.

Growth: Since the last census in March 2006, there are 80 new bloggers and 6 departed bloggers, increasing the blogosphere from 235 bloggers to 309 bloggers – an increase of about 30%.

Gender: Of the bloggers, 74 are female and 235 are male. Thus, about 24% are female and 76% are male. These are roughly the same percentages as in the last census.

Schools: Schools with the most bloggers include:
Chicago (16)
Georgetown (14)
San Diego (8)
Illinois (7)
GW (6)
George Mason (6)
Temple (6)
UCLA (6)
Michigan (5)
St. John’s (5)
William Mitchell (5)

Schools making their first appearance on the census include: Arkansas-Fayetteville, Arizona State, Berkeley Boalt Hall, Brooklyn, Drexel, Florida, Kentucky, Michigan State, Nebraska, Santa Clara, Seton Hall, Tulane, Tulsa, and Wake Forest.

Schools in the U.S. News Top 20 rankings account for 83 bloggers
1. Yale (2)
2. Stanford (3)
3. Harvard (4)
4. Columbia (1)
4. NYU (1)
6. Chicago (17)
7. Pennsylvania (0)
8. Berkeley (1)
8. Michigan (5)
8. Virginia (2)
11. Duke (2)
12. Northwestern (3)
13. Cornell (4)
14. Georgetown (14)
15. UCLA (6)
16. Texas (4)
17. USC (0)
17. Vanderbilt (1)
19. George Washington (6)
19. Minnesota (4)
19. Washington U. (4)

Bloggers from the Top 20 increased from 67 to 83, an increase of about 24%. The Top 20 schools have a disproportionately large representation in the blogosphere – a little under a third (29%) of the total number of bloggers (290). Only 2 schools in the Top 20 have no bloggers -- Pennsylvania and USC.

In the chart that follows, I indicate new bloggers with NEW. Since the chart has grown too large for a single blog post, I had to cut the chart in half. The chart below the fold consists of schools beginning with the letters A-M. For the second half of the chart, schools N-Z, click here.

Can We Round Up Two More Bloggers?

posted by Daniel J. Solove

Thanks to everybody who is sending in additions, deletions, and other edits to the law professor blogger census. I'll post a final version later this week.

In the beta version, I counted 290 bloggers. Now, after reader comments, I have a count of 298. All we need to do is locate two more law professor bloggers to get over 300 . . .

Law Professor Blogger Census (Version 5.0)

posted by Daniel J. Solove

census.jpgNEW VERSION 5.0

NOTE: This is a beta version. Please email me with any corrections. I plan to post a final version soon.

It’s time again for the semi-annual census of law professor bloggers. A lot has happened in the blogosphere since the last census (Version 4.3) was completed in March 2006.

Earlier Versions of the Census: In Version 2.0 (June 2005), there were 130 bloggers (28 female, 102 male), and schools with the largest number of bloggers included: San Diego (7), UCLA (5), George Mason (5), Cincinnati (4), Ohio State (4), GW (3), Georgetown (3), Stanford (3), St. Thomas (3), Chapman (3), Villanova (3).

In Version 3.1 (November 2005), there were 202 bloggers (50 female, 152 male), and schools with the largest number of bloggers included: Chicago (14); UCLA (7); San Diego (7); GW (5); Cincinnati (5); George Mason (5); Stanford (4); Northwestern (4); Ohio State (4); U.C. Davis (4); American (4); Case Western (4); St. John's (4).

In Version 4.3 (March 2006), there were 235 law professor bloggers (58 female, 177 male), and schools with the largest number of bloggers included: Chicago (15); San Diego (7); GW (6); Illinois (6); UCLA (6); George Mason (5); and William Mitchell (5)

NEW VERSION 5.0 STATS:

Number: There are 290 law professor bloggers.

Growth: Since the last census in March 2006, there are 59 new bloggers and 4 departed bloggers, increasing the blogosphere from 235 bloggers to 290 bloggers – an increase of about 23%.

Gender: Of the bloggers, 70 are female and 220 are male. Thus, about 24% are female and 76% are male. These are roughly the same percentages as in the last census.

Schools: Schools with the most bloggers include:
Chicago (17)
Georgetown (14)
San Diego (8)
Illinois (7)
GW (6)
George Mason (6)
Temple (6)
UCLA (6)
Michigan (5)
St. John’s (5)
William Mitchell (5)

Schools making their first appearance on the census include: Arkansas-Fayetteville, Arizona State, Berkeley Boalt Hall, Brooklyn, Drexel, Florida, Kentucky, Nebraska, Santa Clara, Seton Hall, Tulane, and Wake Forest.

Schools in the U.S. News Top 20 rankings account for 84 bloggers
1. Yale (2)
2. Stanford (3)
3. Harvard (4)
4. Columbia (1)
4. NYU (1)
6. Chicago (17)
7. Pennsylvania (0)
8. Berkeley (1)
8. Michigan (5)
8. Virginia (2)
11. Duke (2)
12. Northwestern (3)
13. Cornell (4)
14. Georgetown (14)
15. UCLA (6)
16. Texas (4)
17. USC (0)
17. Vanderbilt (1)
19. George Washington (6)
19. Minnesota (4)
19. Washington U. (4)

Bloggers from the Top 20 increased from 67 to 84, an increase of about 24%. The Top 20 schools have a disproportionately large representation in the blogosphere – a little under a third (29%) of the total number of bloggers (290). Only 2 schools in the Top 20 have no bloggers -- Pennsylvania and USC.

In the chart that follows, I indicate new bloggers with NEW. Since the chart has grown too large for a single blog post, I had to cut the chart in half. The chart below the fold consists of schools beginning with the letters A-M. For the second half of the chart, schools N-Z, click here.

Updated Law Professor Blogger Census

posted by Daniel J. Solove

Thanks to the help of many people, I've been making several additions and subtractions to the law professor blogger census, now in Version 4.3.

My latest tally is 235 bloggers, with 47 new bloggers and 14 bloggers who departed the blogosphere since my last census in November 2005. [Someone needs to coin a term for a blogger who has left the blogosphere -- "blogged out" perhaps?] That's a net increase of 33 bloggers since November 2005, where I had counted 202.

And for those interested in stats, here's one more stat:

Schools Adding the Most Bloggers Since the Last Census
Illinois +3 (includes lateral of Christine Hurt)
Virginia +3
Cornell +2
Temple +2
William Mitchell +2

Law Professor Blogger Census (Version 4.3)

posted by Daniel J. Solove

census.jpgNEW VERSION 4.3

UPDATE: Thanks to Ian Best and a special thanks to Christine Hurt for pointing out a number of omissions. New tallies are below.

It’s time again for a new census of law professor bloggers. A lot has happened in the blogosphere since the last census (Version 3.1) was completed in November 2005.

Earlier Versions of the Census: In Version 2.0 (June 2005), there were 130 bloggers (28 female, 102 male), and schools with the largest number of bloggers included: San Diego (7), UCLA (5), George Mason (5), Cincinnati (4), Ohio State (4), GW (3), Georgetown (3), Stanford (3), St. Thomas (3), Chapman (3), Villanova (3).

In Version 3.1 (November 2005), there were 202 bloggers (50 female, 152 male), and schools with the largest number of bloggers included: Chicago (14); UCLA (7); San Diego (7); GW (5); Cincinnati (5); George Mason (5); Stanford (4); Northwestern (4); Ohio State (4); U.C. Davis (4); American (4); Case Western (4); St. John's (4).

NEW VERSION 4.3 STATS:

Number: There are 235 law professor bloggers.

Growth: Since the last census in November 2005, the number of bloggers has grown by 33 bloggers -- from 202 to 235 -- an increase of about 16%.

Additions and Subtractions: : There were several bloggers who departed the blogosphere. In all, I counted 14 departed bloggers. There were 47 new bloggers, resulting in a net gain of 33.

Gender: Of the bloggers, 58 are female and 177 are male. Thus, about 25% are female and 75% are male. These are roughly the same percentages as in the last census. Female bloggers increased by 14% and male bloggers increased by 16%.

Schools: Schools with the most bloggers include:
Chicago (15)
San Diego (7)
GW (6)
Illinois (6)
UCLA (6)
George Mason (5)
William Mitchell (5)

Illinois, it seems, is placing its bets on bloggers. It has recently hired several bloggers as laterals – including Christine Hurt and Lawrence Solum – and is home to the well-known blogger Larry Ribstein.

There were quite a few schools with 4 bloggers, including American, Case Western, Cardozo, Cincinnati, Cornell, U.C. Davis, Georgetown, Lewis & Clark, Michigan, Northwestern, Ohio State, Stanford, St. John's, and Temple.

Please note: I have listed professors whose lateral moves have been announced (see here) with their new institutions.

Schools in the U.S. News Top 20 rankings account for 67 bloggers
1. Yale (3)
2. Harvard (3)
3. Stanford (4)
4. Columbia (1)
5. NYU (1)
6. Chicago (16)
7. Pennsylvania (0)
8. Michigan (4)
8. Virginia (3)
10. Northwestern (4)
11. Cornell (4)
11. Duke (2)
11. Berkeley (0)
14. Georgetown (4)
15. UCLA (6)
15. Texas (3)
17. Vanderbilt (1)
18. USC (0)
19. Minnesota (2)
20. Boston University (0)
20. George Washington (6)

Bloggers from the Top 20 increased from 61 to 67, an increase of about 10%. The Top 20 schools have a disproportionately large representation in the blogosphere -- roughly a third (30%) of the total number of bloggers (230). Only 4 schools in the Top 20 have no bloggers – Berkeley, Pennsylvania, USC, and Boston University.

In the chart that follows, I indicate new bloggers with NEW.

Law Professor Blogger Census (Version 3.1)

posted by Daniel J. Solove

census.jpgUPDATED! This version of the census (Version 3.1) incorporates changes and additions to Version 3.0 of the census released last week. Thank you to all readers who pointed out omissions and errors. As a result of the comments, 20 new bloggers have been added to the census. In addition to the chart, the stats below have all be updated. Based on these changes, there are 202 law professor bloggers, a greater percentage of female bloggers, and three additional schools in the schools with the most bloggers list: American, Case Western, and St. John's.

Back in June of 2005, I decided to do a census of law professor bloggers. I released Version 1.0, and after receiving comments from readers, released an updated Version 2.0 on June 16, 2005, which is available here.

In Version 2.0 of the census, on June 16, 2005, I listed 130 bloggers (28 female, 102 male), and schools with the largest number of bloggers: San Diego (7), UCLA (5), George Mason (5), Cincinnati (4), Ohio State (4), GW (3), Georgetown (3), Stanford (3), St. Thomas (3), Chapman (3), Villanova (3).

I’ve decided to update the census for this fall, creating Version 3.1.

Current statistics for Version 3.1 are:

Number of Bloggers: 202 bloggers.

Growth: Since the last census on June 16, 2005, the number of bloggers has grown from 130 to 202, an increase of 55%! That’s a big increase in less than 5 months.

Gender: Of the bloggers, 50 are female and 152 are male. Thus, about 25% are female and 75% are male. There are 22 new female bloggers and 50 new male bloggers. Female bloggers increased by 78.5% and male bloggers increased by 49%.

Schools: Schools with the most bloggers include:
Chicago (14)
UCLA (7)
San Diego (7)
GW (5)
Cincinnati (5)
George Mason (5)
Stanford (4)
Northwestern (4)
Ohio State (4)
U.C. Davis (4)
American (4)
Case Western (4)
St. John's (4)

Schools in the U.S. News Top 20 rankings account for 61 bloggers
1. Yale (3)
2. Harvard (2)
3. Stanford (4)
4. Columbia (2)
5. NYU (2)
6. Chicago (14)
7. Pennsylvania (0)
8. Michigan (3)
8. Virginia (1)
10. Northwestern (4)
11. Cornell (3)
11. Duke (1)
11. Berkeley (1)
14. Georgetown (3)
15. UCLA (7)
15. Texas (3)
17. Vanderbilt (1)
18. USC (0)
19. Minnesota (1)
20. Boston University (1)
20. George Washington (5)

There are 61 bloggers from Top 20 schools. The number is roughly a third (30%) of the total number of bloggers (202). It thus appears that the Top 20 schools have a disproportionately large representation in the blogosphere. Only 2 schools in the Top 20 have no bloggers.

The Chicago Law Faculty Blog partly accounts for the disproportionate numbers among Top 20 schools. Without Chicago, there are 47 bloggers from the Top 20 schools, accounting for 23% of the total number of bloggers. Not including Chicago, the average Top 20 law school has 2.35 bloggers.

If we use Brian Leiter’s Top 20 law faculties based on scholarly citations, we must include 3 different schools (Colorado, Emory, Illinois – 4 bloggers) and exclude 3 schools (Pennsylvania, Vanderbilt, Minnesota – 2 bloggers total). This results in a net increase of 2 bloggers, thus yielding 63 bloggers from the Leiter Top 20.

The schools with the most bloggers generally fare quite well in the Leiter rankings.
Chicago – Blogger Rank = 1, Leiter Rank = 1
UCLA – Blogger Rank = 2, Leiter Rank = 15
San Diego – Blogger Rank = 2, Leiter Rank = 23
GW – Blogger Rank = 4, Leiter Rank = 16
George Mason – Blogger Rank = 4, Leiter Rank = 23
Cincinnati – Blogger Rank = 4, Leiter Rank = Unranked (outside Top 30)
Stanford – Blogger Rank = 5, Leiter Rank = 4
Northwestern – Blogger Rank = 5, Leiter Rank = 12
Ohio State – Blogger Rank = 5, Leiter Rank = 28
U.C. Davis – Blogger Rank = 5, Leiter Rank = Unranked (outside Top 30)
American -- Blogger Rank =5, Leiter Rank = Unranked (outside Top 30)
Case Western -- Blogger Rank = 5, Leiter Rank = Unranked (outside Top 30)
St. John's -- Blogger Rank = 5, Leiter Rank = Unranked (outside Top 30)

New changes and additions to the census are indicated with the word "NEW." This designation either means that the blog is new or the blogger is new or both.

Law Professor Blogger Census (Version 3.0)

posted by Daniel J. Solove

census.jpg UPDATE: The census has been revised. A new version of the census, Version 3.1, incorporates changes and additions suggested by readers. It includes 20 more bloggers.

Back in June of 2005, I decided to do a census of law professor bloggers. I released Version 1.0, and after receiving comments from readers, released an updated Version 2.0 on June 16, 2005, which is available here.

In Version 2.0 of the census, on June 16, 2005, I listed 130 bloggers (28 female, 102 male), and schools with the largest number of bloggers: San Diego (7), UCLA (5), George Mason (5), Cincinnati (4), Ohio State (4), GW (3), Georgetown (3), Stanford (3), St. Thomas (3), Chapman (3), Villanova (3).

I’ve decided to update the census for this fall, creating Version 3.0. Please email me about your blog if you were left out of this list or if you know of others we overlooked. I will post a revised version after receiving comments.

Current statistics for Version 3.0 are:

Number of Bloggers: 182 bloggers.

Growth: Since the last census on June 16, 2005, the number of bloggers has grown from 130 to 182, an increase of 40%! That’s a big increase in less than 5 months.

Gender: Of the bloggers, 41 are female and 141 are male. There are 13 new female bloggers and 39 new male bloggers. Female bloggers increased by 46% and male bloggers increased by 38%.

Schools: Schools with the most bloggers include:
Chicago (14)
UCLA (7)
San Diego (7)
GW (5)
George Mason (5)
Stanford (4)
Northwestern (4)
Ohio State (4)
U.C. Davis (4)
Cincinnati (4)

Schools in the U.S. News Top 20 rankings account for 59 bloggers
1. Yale (3)
2. Harvard (2)
3. Stanford (4)
4. Columbia (2)
5. NYU (1)
6. Chicago (14)
7. Pennsylvania (0)
8. Michigan (3)
8. Virginia (1)
10. Northwestern (4)
11. Cornell (3)
11. Duke (1)
11. Berkeley (1)
14. Georgetown (3)
15. UCLA (7)
15. Texas (2)
17. Vanderbilt (1)
18. USC (0)
19. Minnesota (1)
20. Boston University (1)
20. George Washington (5)

There are 59 bloggers from Top 20 schools. The number is roughly a third (32.4%) of the total number of bloggers (182). It thus appears that the Top 20 schools have a disproportionately large representation in the blogosphere. Only 2 schools in the Top 20 have no bloggers.

The Chicago Law Faculty Blog partly accounts for the disproportionate numbers among Top 20 schools. Without Chicago, there are 45 bloggers from the Top 20 schools, accounting for 24.7% of the total number of bloggers. Not including Chicago, the average Top 20 law school has 2.25 bloggers.

If we use Brian Leiter’s Top 20 law faculties based on scholarly citations, we must include 3 different schools (Colorado, Emory, Illinois – 4 bloggers) and exclude 3 schools (Pennsylvania, Vanderbilt, Minnesota – 2 bloggers total). This results in a net increase of 2 bloggers, thus yielding 61 bloggers from the Leiter Top 20.

The schools with the most bloggers generally fare quite well in the Leiter rankings.
Chicago – Blogger Rank = 1, Leiter Rank = 1
UCLA – Blogger Rank = 2, Leiter Rank = 15
San Diego – Blogger Rank = 2, Leiter Rank = 23
GW – Blogger Rank = 4, Leiter Rank = 16
George Mason – Blogger Rank = 4, Leiter Rank = 23
Stanford – Blogger Rank = 5, Leiter Rank = 4
Northwestern – Blogger Rank = 5, Leiter Rank = 12
Ohio State – Blogger Rank = 5, Leiter Rank = 28
U.C. Davis – Blogger Rank = 5, Leiter Rank = Unranked (outside Top 30)
Cincinnati – Blogger Rank = 5, Leiter Rank = Unranked (outside Top 30)

New changes and additions to the census are indicated with the word "NEW." This designation either means that the blog is new or the blogger is new or both.

Law Professor Blogger Census (Version 2.0)

posted by Daniel J. Solove

census.jpgThis post was originally posted on PrawfsBlawg on June 16, 2005.


UPDATED!
On Monday, June 13, I posted the beta version of our attempt to take a census of current law professors who are blogging about legal issues and/or the life of law professors. Kaimi Wenger, Ethan Leib, and Dan Markel of PrawfsBlawg as well as Orin Kerr at VC all assisted me in this endeavor. Many readers posted comments and emailed with bloggers we missed, and we are very grateful for the assistance. When I decided to undertake this project, I thought that there would be around 30 or so law professor bloggers. Had I known the number would be over 100, the task would have struck me as too daunting to begin!

A few statistics

· There are quite a lot of law professor bloggers – 130 in all.

· The schools with the largest amount of bloggers include San Diego (7), UCLA (5), George Mason (5), Cincinnati (4), Ohio State (4), GW (3), Georgetown (3), Stanford (3), St. Thomas (3), Chapman (3), Villanova (3).

· Of the bloggers, 28 are female and 102 are male.

This is version 2.0 of the census, which incorporates the assistance of our readers. The statistics have been updated.

There are a few blogs by law professors that I haven’t added to the census, as these are blogs solely about personal hobbies or experiences without connections to the law or the life of law professors. I discussed my decision not to include these blogs here. After posting the beta version of the census, I learned from Ann Althouse that there are three other blogs I didn’t list from Wisconsin law professors. I located two of them, both of which had posts that they preferred not to be included in the census. I will respect their wishes. Professor Stephen Bainbridge has a blog about wine, but I am not listing it because it has no legal themes at all. But it’s a neat blog nonetheless! Anyway, there is no strong litmus test for inclusion, just at a minimum some posts about issues relating to law, academics, politics, or the life of law professors, law students, or lawyers.

We hope that this census will prove useful for discussing who is blogging, the “blogospherics” (demographics) of the bloggers, and the law schools that have heavy blogging populations. We note that there are many very interesting blawgs by lawyers and law students, but we have restricted this list to law professors. Additionally, blogs without activity over the past month were not included.

We might update this census from time to time, so please email me about your blog if you were left out of this list or if you know of others we overlooked. And, of course, please email me if you start a new blog.
