New rankings show very little overall change from last year

The U.S. News and World Report has released its annual law school rankings for 2010.

With a few exceptions, the report's rankings are almost entirely unchanged from last year. Yale, Harvard, Stanford, and Columbia, in that order, keep the top four spots. Chicago is now in the top five, having bumped NYU down to number six. Duke is edged out of the top ten completely, to number 11.

The rest of the list is relatively unsurprising, with a few exceptions: UC Davis moved up seven spots to number 28; and George Washington University jumped up eight spots to number 20.
