Via Professor Michael Risch at The Faculty Lounge: “This chart tells us a lot of things. First, it shows that the supposedly huge spending on law scholarship is actually tiny when compared to many other fields. (If you can’t read it, that’s Billions on the Y axis.) Indeed, for the amount [of legal scholarship] produced, it’s a downright bargain. So, if you think [the] quality and usefulness [of legal scholarship] is low, perhaps you get what you pay for.”
