The Most-Cited Law Review Articles
California Law Review (1985)
  • Fred R. Shapiro

I present in this study a list of the most-cited law review articles of the last forty years. Such a project falls somewhere between historiography and parlor game, and I will not claim any more significance for it than is warranted. It is my hope, however, that by listing these articles I will draw attention to writings that, by virtue of their objectively measured impact, deserve to be called classics of legal scholarship.
