This year, the law schools at both Duke and Northwestern got the boot from the T10.
The University of Texas at Austin lost its spot in the T14. It's now ranked number 15.
In recovery have been Berkley which has returned to T10 and Georgetown which is back in the T14.

Before the talent glut in so many professional fields - not just law - formal and informal rankings could be taken less seriously. In the 1970s, a fellow MA classmate at the University of Michigan hadn't been accepted into the doctoral program. Later she had applied to and was admitted to a second-tier graduate department in linguistics and literature. She observed, "Here, they help you." We agreed with her. We recognized we were paying a high price for matriculating at an elite program.
That was then.
The way the world now works, amid the surplus of degreed manpower, it's career suicide not to push to be admitted to the best ranked university program. Otherwise, the thinking goes, don't enroll. You're wasting your money, time, and dreams.
