In response to a proposal by Dean Gary Simson of Case Western Reserve University School of Law to "say enough" to the rankings in U.S. News & World Report, several deans say they wish it were that easy to make the list go away. The rankings are "a fact of life," says Lawrence Ponoroff, dean of Tulane University Law School. And while the Loyola dean says a boycott would not only not get "rid of the rankings, it could be worse than it is now," the UCLA dean supports a boycott.
