DePaul law faculty's scholarly impact recognized in 2015 study

DePaul University College of Law ranks in the top third of U.S. law schools (64th) in a recent study measuring the scholarly impact of law faculties.

Professor Gregory Sisk and colleagues at the University of St. Thomas School of Law conducted the 2015 study, which uses the “Scholarly Impact Score” developed by Professor Brian Leiter at the University of Chicago. The scholarly impact ranking is calculated from the mean and median of total law journal citations by tenured faculty over the past five years.

The study also notes the 10 most cited scholars for each ranked law school. The most cited DePaul law faculty members include Susan Bandes, Sumi Cho, David Franklin, Patty Gerstenblith, Andrew Gold, Roberta Kwall, Joshua Sarnoff, Jeffrey Shaman, Stephen Siegel and Mark Weber.

"DePaul faculty continue to be distinctive in the breadth and quality of their scholarship," said Dean Jennifer Rosato Perea. "It's great to see that distinction recognized nationally!"
