2006 US News & World Report Law School Rankings are out. There are no changes that I particularly want to discuss (the first shift is last year's tie between Michigan and UPenn at #7 being broken). It's a pretty sure bet that Leiter will mock the rankings in the next couple of days, which is always fun. Since I haven't heard anything about changes in methodology, all the standard complaints about them are probably still valid. see Leiter, The U.S. News Law School Rankins: A Guide for the Perplexed.

Update: Unsurprisingly, Leiter has weighed in, and it's fairly clever. See the first update.
