The Dominance of Teams in the Production of Legal Knowledge

Christopher A. Cotropia & Lee Petherbridge

Using a database that contains over 19,000 law review articles published in top 100 law reviews between 1990 and 2010, we observe that team authors dominate solo authors in the production of legal knowledge. Team research is on average more frequently cited than individual research, and teams are more likely than individuals to produce exceptionally high-impact research. These results suggest that a legal research culture that encourages cooperation and collaboration could foster an intellectual connectedness helpful to improving the quality of knowledge production by legal academics.
