The Best Law School Home Pages of 2010

According to this report by Debra Cassens Weiss in the American Bar Association Journal, The University of Illinois was voted for having the best law school home page.  Yale Technologies Librarian Jason Elseman along with Georgetown’s Electronic Resources Librarian Roger Skalbeck ranked over 200 ABA-accredited law schools based on 20 separate elements.  Here is sample of the Metrics used for awarding points: 

  • Recognizable RSS feeds,
  • Links to social media sites,
  • Display of an address and phone number, and
  • Clickable news headlines about the school. 

Schools that had photos of students posing under trees lost points.
