The Washington & Lee Law Library has recently updated its Law Journal Rankings to include data from 2012. The rankings take into account citations to journals during the last eight years, with the combined score looking at impact factor and total cites. Much more detail on the ranking methodology is available here. Over the last few years BYU Law School faculty have published or will soon publish scholarship in many of the top ranked law reviews and journals according to the Washington & Lee Rankings. Some of these top placements include the Columbia Law Review (#2), Michigan Law Review (#6), UCLA Law Review (twice) (#7), Texas Law Review (twice) (#9), Fordham Law Review (#11), Cornell Law Review (#15), and Minnesota Law Review (#18).
