When the Princeton law school rankings came out last year, we were in the middle of rankings delirium. This delirium involved a lot of whining about how US News has too much power, how arbitrary the whole process is, how prestige-obsessed law school administrators are, etc.
I was visibly disappointed by how non-controversial the Princeton 2009 rankings were. The most exciting part of Princeton's rankings was the methodology, which seemed to be a "burn on US News." Well, I'm even more bored this year, because they've ditched the methodology in favor of a lengthy "User Guide" that says nothing remotely snide about "other rankings." Snore.
Regardless, I bring you this year's Princeton rankings, with very little fanfare, courtesy of The AmLaw Daily:
