Does U.S. News Have a Monopoly on Law School Ranking?

As a follow-up to this earlier post on law firm rankings, David Bernstein of Volokh complains that one reason that there's so much focus on the U.S. News rankings is that the publication has a virtual monopoly on the rankings, though others (like Leiter) provide more useful information to those concerned about academic quality.  Frankly, with the proliferation of both law professor and law student blogs, and so much information about schools available online, I'm surprised that it's so difficult to break in to the rankings market.   But I'm with Bernstein on this one -- let one thousand rankings systems bloom.
