The Law Prof 100

Nominations are now being accepted for the Law Prof 100,
LawTV's ranking of America's most influential law professors.

"Influential" is a measure of how large an impact a particular professor has on society. 

This influence can be, for instance, through academic writings, popular writings, litigation,
media appearances, business activities, teaching, lecturing, charitable work, law blogs, or scholarly impact. 
Full professors and adjunct professors can be nominated.

Only law students (full-time or part-time), law professors (including adjunct professors), law school graduates,
and law school administrators are eligible to nominate.
Your law school must be located in the United States 
and may be ABA-accredited or non-ABA-accredited.

You may nominate up to 10 law professors --
including no more than five from your own law school and no more than five from other law schools.

For your nomination to be valid, it must be in the following form:

1. The subject line of your e-mail must read: 

Law Prof 100 Nominations

(followed by a two-hyphen dash and the name of your law school).

For instance:

Law Prof 100 Nominations -- Georgetown


Law Prof 100 Nominations -- Florida State

2. The body of your e-mail must contain your name, your law school status, 
and your nominations in the following form:

Hadley V. Baxendale
Cornell second-year law student

 John Smith -- Cornell
Bill Jones -- Cornell
Tony Carter -- Cornell
Fernando Rossini -- Cornell
Betty Jackson -- Cornell adjunct

Roberta Freeman -- Georgetown
Gerri Feulner -- Virginia
Florence May -- UCLA
Donna Macaulay -- Albany
Roberta Lord -- Baylor

The order in which you list the nominees has no consequence.

3. Your e-mail must be sent to

You may vote only once, but you may change your nominations as often as you like.
Each time you send in a new set of nominations, your prior nominations will be voided.

Professors may nominate themselves.

Since law schools differ in the number of students and faculty,
nominations will be normalized, based on law-school enrollments. 
This will prevent professors from larger law schools
from having an unfair advantage over professors from smaller law schools.
