MoneyLaw: The art of winning an unfair academic game

The Jurisdynamics Network is proud to introduce a new blog, MoneyLaw. Inspired by Michael Lewis's book, Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game, many law professors have pondered the extent to which this profession can learn from Billy Beane's approach to winning baseball games for the Oakland Athletics. Four of those professors -- Jim Chen, Tom W. Bell, Paul Caron, and Ronen Perry -- will now discuss the ways in which Moneyball's emphasis on quantitative assessment of baseball-related performance can inform law school governance, academic rankings, and the overall mission of legal academia.

In his initial post on MoneyLaw, Tom Bell engages in an extensive discussion of the U.S. News and World Reports law school rankings. Among other things, the article provides links to Tom's extensive posts on Agoraphilia.
