by Kevin Jon Heller

According to research conducted by Jay Brown of theRacetotheBottom.org, blogs have been cited in “law reviews, journals, and other legal publications” more than 6300 times — a nearly fourteen-fold increase since 2006.  Here are the 10 most-cited faculty law blogs:

1. Volokh Conspiracy — 742 cites
2. Balkinization — 426 cites
3. Patently O — 393 cites
4. Concurring Opinions — 279 cites
5. Sentencing Law and Policy — 272 cites
6. Prawfs Blawg — 219 cites
7. Opinio Juris — 200 cites
8. Lessig Blog — 178 cites
9. Harvard Forum on Corp. Gov. — 178 cites
10. Conglomerate — 171 cites

Brown also notes that the list has remained remarkably stable over time, with seven of the 10 being among the 10 most-cited law blogs in 2007.  We are actually one of the three newcomers, which is great news.

Thanks to all the scholars out there who have cited us!
