Understanding the varying effects of how different forms of authority impinge upon one another is an important question for legal scholars. If quantification changes relations of authority, what people notice, and how they make sense of situations, it is not surprising that it changes how people resist. Debate often focuses on methods, on how qualified someone is to make or interpret quantitative findings, or on how instances are not covered by the rules for quantifying. Efforts to game the numbers, or interpret rules in creative ways, or create alternative rankings are ways of reclaiming some more narrow forms of discretion.

Few decisions are made without considering potential ramifications on rankings. As one law dean commented, “Rankings come up all the time. We’re embarrassed to admit that but it’s true. They are there lurking behind pretty much every issue” (fieldnotes, 2007).

Status is the coin of the realm in legal education, and law schools have always been stratified in ways that defined careers.
