If Antitrust Law Practitioners Were Counted as Full Time Academics, What Would Their Citation Counts Look Like?

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

I thought it would be interesting to see which antitrust practitioners have the most citations in westlaw. This is a very unscientific search but I tried to think of some of the practitioners whose work I regularly see in print. We have quite a line-up of well cited people that average more citations than most law faculties in the United States -- and these people all have full time day jobs! To compare, you can find the median scholarly citation count for the Top 25 most cited full time law faculties here. The median citation counts at Yale, Harvard and Chicago are 400, 360, and 295 respectively whereas the median citation counts at Emory, Minnesota and University of Virginia are 130, 180, and 150.

Doug Melamed (listed as Douglas) 1,611
David Balto 599
Will Tom (listed as Willard) 364
Bill Kolasky (listed as William) 338
Bill Baer (listed as William) 262
Joe Kattan (listed as Joseph) 236
Tom Rosch (listed as Thomas) 232
Gary Spratling 220
Ilene Gotts 204
Dick Steueer (listed as Richard) 201
Joe Sims 186
Jonathan Jacobson 171
Bert Foer (listed as Albert) 152
Steve Sunshine (listed as Steven) 148
Bill Blumenthal (listed as William) 145
Paul Denis 135
Ken Glazer (listed as Kenneth) 117
Joe Simons (listed as Joseph) 114
Dale Collins 112
Susan Creighton 99

Because I randomly included names, there are many people whom I am sure I have inadvertently left off the list. Please feel free to email me if you have 100 or more citations in the westlaw JLR database and I will add you.
