Scholarly productivity at law schools

Brian Leiter blogs that Roger Williams Law School has updated and published the results of a study of faculty productivity of schools outside the US News top 50 judged by publishing in top law journals. Pitt Law is fifth. When compared to top law schools, Harvard was only slightly more productive than San Diego, while USD, Cardozo, Florida State, Richmond, and Pittsburgh all had higher per capita productivity than BU.
For those on the law teaching market, this study is not a bad tool for gauging which more regional law schools have serious scholarly cultures.
