Boyd School of Law in top 20 for article placement

The William S. Boyd School of Law at UNLV ranks 17th in the nation for per capita productivity of articles in top journals according to a study conducted by the Roger Williams University (RWU) School of Law.

In the study, administrators at RWU Law compared the scholarly output in selected journals of all law schools that are ABA-accredited, members of the Association of American Law Schools, and were ranked below the 50th spot in the U.S. News & World Report 2013 rankings.

Qualifying articles were those published since 1993. Faculty lists included all full-time tenured and tenure-track academic faculty in 2011-2012 who were expected to produce scholarship as a major part of their duties.
