ABA House of Delegates Cites Drexel Law Review During Debate on Rankings

February 08, 2010

The House of Delegates of the American Bar Association adopted a resolution on Feb. 8 to study the ranking of law firms and law schools. The resolution followed discussion of a report that identified flaws in ranking of law schools by the U.S. News & World Report and cited an article on this topic in the inaugural issue of the Drexel Law Review. 

The article, written by Judge Louis H. Pollak of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, appeared in the Winter/Spring 2009 issue of the law review.

Judge Pollak wrote that the methodology used in the rankings does not produce reliable results and is “bad for the health of legal education.” The ABA elected to review the ranking process as the U.S. News & World Report is poised to review and evaluate law firms as it has done with educational institutions.
