The Broken Law School Rankings

Rankings are an incredible draw in U.S. culture. They sell magazines and we click on websites because of them. Whether it's college football, the world's richest person, or top party schools, we like to see things classified and ordered. So, it may be a surprise that one set of rankings has arguably caused harm to an educational system. Brian Tamanaha, author of "Failing Law Schools," lays out the effect that he thinks the US News law school rankings have had on American law schools, leading some institutions to even lie.
