SSRN Law School Rankings for September

Back in August, I posted an American law school ranking list based on new downloads. Here, by popular demand, is the updated, September list. With a twist. This one is arranged by total downloads per author: a snapshot of the per capita downloads of each law school’s SSRN-participating faculty. The parenthesis is (total downloads, per capita downloads).
