    This program will address the ways that using citation metrics to measure the scholarly impact of law faculty may affect law schools. The issue has come to the fore with the announcement by U.S. News & World Report that it will produce a ranking of law schools based on citation metrics obtained from HeinOnline. The panel will consider this venture as well as other ways citation metrics have been or could be used and what effects rankings based on scholarly impact may have on law faculty, on law libraries (who are often asked to provide or evaluate metrics), and on law schools as a whole.
