How can I find historical US and World News LS Ranking Data?

Postby albieman » Thu Jan 21, 2010 8:30 pm

I figured someone on this board would be able to help...

I am looking for some historical data (maybe past 10 years) that tracks the top 100 law schools.

Thanks

Albieman

I would love to see historical rankings (For the past 3-4 years maybe) built in to the rankings page of this site. So many prospective students only pay attention to the current ranking of a school, but the trend is just as important. It's funny that so much emphasis is put on rank, but the ranking of the previous years is forgotten the second a new USNWR comes out.

TITCR
they have the best comparative data, including historical averages -- which makes a lot more sense than looking at just one year's ranking.
