Advanced Google Scholar on legal literature

Further to an earlier IPBiz post on citation [
Most cited law profs
], IPBiz notes that Google Scholar can rank publications according to number of citations [for example, on LBE]. The citation numbers tend to be low, and don't include many of the citations which would be found on ISI.

Separately, the advanced scholar search on Google Scholar allows one to search on law reviews and on published court opinions.

IPBiz notes a useful feature for "advanced scholar" would be to identify papers that SHOULD HAVE BEEN CITED by a given author, but weren't. This could be done both by keywords and by comparing references which actually were cited.
