Top Ten - Legal Ethics and Professional Responsbility - Oct. 17

Posted by Jeff Lipshaw

There are no new entrants to the top ten this week, but some jockeying for position, just as the dust starts clearing on the BCS Bowl picture.  Fortunately, for purposes of clarity, we only have the computer rankings on which to rely, but were we to adopt a BCS approach, we'd have to have a couple subjective polls as well.  Here's to the possibility of a "Game of the Common Era" between Michigan (Go Blue!) and the team from that institution in central Ohio with the funny-looking mascot and the very fine law school.  (Hey, even my wife thinks Kirk Herbstreit is a hunk.)

But we digress.  The current top ten downloaded papers as reported by SSRN for its Legal Ethics and Professional Responsibility Journal, as of October 16, 2006:
