US News & World ReportEarlier this week we reported on the US News & World Report law school rankings for this year.

Now it seems US News is reexamining some of the data provided to it by law schools on the list.

From US News‘ Robert Morse:

Where


It has come to our attention, since the law rankings were published, that a few schools might have submitted incorrect data to U.S. News. We are studying these situations very carefully and will have more to say next week.

The University of Nebraska College of Law asserts that its drop in the rankings from last year is due to incorrect information.

Online commentators who have examined the rankings suggest that Brooklyn Law School might have benefited from incorrect information presented to US News; but there is no evidence of intentional cheating, and the school has yet to respond.

Again, from Robert Morse:

These rankings are based on two types of data: expert opinions about program quality and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research, and students. These data come from surveys of more than 1,200 programs and some 11,000 academics and professionals that were conducted in Fall 2008.
