Weekly Top Tens from the Social Science Research Network

Stephen_Colbert_at_RallyStephen Colbert (pictured) often makes a big deal about the "Colbert Bump" that candidates get from appearing on his show, but that's nothing compared to the Berggren Bump that contracts profs get when ContractsProf Blog Intern 2.0 Justin Berggren posts about their work.  Take as a case in point Zev Eigen, whose work Empirical Studies of Contract was enjoying the respectful obscurity that all too often greets works of serious scholarship.   But now that Justin has given his endorsement of Professor Eigen's project, he's sprung to the top of the Law & Society: Contracts Top Ten!

Folks on the Contracts & Commercial Law Top Ten, you'd better watch out if you are north of #5.  And the rest of you, perhaps it's time you had your people contact Justin's people.  But don't come on too strong.  Start by taking him to lunch.
