As of February 13, 2009, the University of Tennessee College of Law ranks 23rd on the Social Science Research Network (SSRN) list of “Top U.S. Law Schools” on the basis of “total new downloads for all papers during the past 12 months.” Scholarly papers by faculty in the college have been downloaded 15,334 times during that period.
Only 23 faculty authors in the college are registered with SSRN. To put that in perspective, the 22 schools that are ranked above UT range from 37 to 165 registered faculty, and only six of the top 100 law schools have fewer registered faculty members than UT does.
When sorted by “new downloads per paper for all papers during the past 12 months,” which adjusts for faculty size, UT ranks first among U.S. law schools.
