The "Top 10" law school websites.

From the National Law Journal:

A recent empirical study and ranking of the home pages for all 200 American Bar Association-accredited law schools found that 65 included photos of students in or around trees, a phenomenon the authors dubbed 'Girls Under Trees.'

According to the study, titled 'Top 10 Law School Home Pages of 2010,' photos of students under trees and pictures of Supreme Court justices, moot court competitions and students sitting class aren't necessarily useful or informative.

'While thought to give potential students a taste of law school life, these photos usually do not add any content, context, nor important information for visitors to a site,' reads the study, authored by Georgetown University Law Center Associate Law Librarian Roger Skalbeck and Yale Law School Librarian for Emerging Technologies Jason Eiseman.
