Measures research influence and impact at the journal and category levels by showing the relationship between citing and cited journals available in the Web of Science database. Choose law under the "select categories" menu on the left to see rankings of the academic law journals included.
This site from the Washington and Lee School of Law allows authors "to identify law journals by subject, country, or journal rank (where available), to display journal editorial information, and to facilitate an author's article submission to those journals."
Maintained by Allen Rostron and Nancy Levit, this publication provides "information about submitting articles to law reviews and journals, including the methods for submitting an article, any special formatting requirements, how to contact them to request an expedited review, and how to contact them to withdraw an article from consideration."
