I don't know the answer to your question, but the founder of the Federalist Society, Steven Calebresi, teaches at NW.

Im going to have to say Pepperdine, George Mason, & Chicago are near the top (of course schools like Regents, etc.. will also have a lot)

Not sure about that. Personally, it doesn't bother me too much what the political leanings of faculty are - in most cases, they are immaterial to what is actually being taught. Most law schools do have a chapter of the Federalist Society, and I wouldn't be surprised if there'd be a couple faculty members on the roster there, even at what are usually considered fairly "liberal" schools.

I am trying to measure this based on the number/proportion of faculty that are members of the Federalist Society. Which law schools have the highest federalist society membership? Is there any site that reports this?

Try e-mailing the Federalist Society. Seriously. I bet they track such things and they would appreciate your interest.

If you find such a ranking please be sure to post it...I need to know which schools to avoid at all cost.

NU is not at all conservative (it is quite liberal as a whole, in fact). It does, however, do a wonderful job at fosterng intellectual freedom and have a trifecta of big-name conservative professors (Calabresi, Presser, and McGinnis) as well as some good, young law & economics types.
