More of the same as US News, but this report has comprehensive information on employment statistics, courses offered and law journals.

BCG is pretty great - but they are notoriously outdated and inaccurate.

I don't know much about them, but the information they use appears to be recent, updated data (2005-2008).  It's also just a compilation of information from other sources, like US News or whatever, so I'm not sure I see how it can be "outdated" or "inaccurate."

This is not a new or different ranking, it just uses the 2008 top 50 US News ranking.

You're right.  It's basically US News 2008, as opposed to the current US News 2009.  I got the years confused.
