Thanks to Fred Shapiro’s labor, we can see that the under-fifty category of most-cited legal scholars better represents the lawyering population than the all-time rankings of legal scholars, as it has more modern and diverse scholarship, and it has a higher percentage of women than the all-time rankings of legal scholars. Anyone who knows Professor Abbe Gluck’s work cannot be surprised that she is included among the most-cited scholars under the age of fifty. 1 Abbe is a force of nature, a brilliant legal mind with a diabolical work ethic. Even if she ceased publishing today, her scholarly legacy would be considerable and durable. It is nearly impossible to research public law and not to use her work as an intellectual touchstone.
