  1. I find it hard to believe that Georgetown is not on this list -- can somebody please confirm that this was not an oversight in the research?

  2. Georgetown Law Journal is cited 15,746 times in HeinOnline. It is ranked 31, so it just missed the top 30 list as we have posted here.

  3. Could you please post the names of articles with 250 or more cites?

  4. I wonder why Notre Dame Law Review isn't higher ranked. Is it in the top 50?

  5. Below are 2 links to lists that outline the top 100 journals, and articles that are cited more than 260 times. These lists include content released after the post date of the initial blog post, therefore numbers may appear higher than indicated in the initial blog post to include new citations that were found.
