May SSRN Download Counts

From the Department of Possibly Misleading Information comes the Law School SSRN Rankings for May. See previous installments here and here. I originally highlighted in blue schools that significantly outperformed my impression of their popularly conceived rank; and in red those that underperformed. But then I reconsidered and concluded that this was an unproductive exercise. So I am presenting these data without further interpretation.
