A group of NYU Law professors have been included on the 2012 list of the authors most frequently cited in legal journals released by HeinOnline, the world’s largest image-based legal research database. The list of 100 authors, which is available here, is calculated based on Bluebook citation analysis of all of the titles available in the HeinOnline database. Richard Epstein, Laurence A. Tisch Professor of Law, is fourth on the list, having been cited by 8470 articles. Also appearing on the list are Samuel Issacharoff, Bonnie and Richard Reiss Professor of Constitutional Law; Geoffrey Miller, Stuyvesant P. Comfort Professor of Law; Richard Stewart, University Professor and John Edward Sexton Professor of Law; Barry Friedman, Jacob D. Fuchsberg Professor of Law; and Judge Harry Edwards, who is a Visiting Professor of Law. David Shapiro, Faculty in Residence, and Visiting Professor of Law Michael McConnell were also included, as were two NYU Law alumni, Professor John Coffee (LL.M. ’76) of Columbia Law School and Professor Judith Resnik ’75 of Yale Law School.
