Most reliable rankings for Law schools? (apart from this site)


finnick

Hello people,
My search on google about best law schools yields so many websites that I don't know which would be more reliable and there is not a negligible difference between the rankings. I am looking for rankings of LLM programs in the world but also law schools in general whether JD, LLB or LLM.
Which ranking would you prefer to look at?
some examples:
1) https://www.topuniversities.com/universities/subject/law-legal-studies
2) https://www.mastersportal.com/articles/2745/best-law-schools-in-the-world-law-university-rankings-2020.html
3) https://www.timeshighereducation.com/student/best-universities/best-universities-law-degrees
thank you

Generally, the ones listed here are worth looking at:

https://llm-guide.com/law-school-rankings

For law schools in the UK, Complete University Guide and the Guardian. For the US, US News & World Report is probably the most reliable, but of course only focuses on JD programs. 

There are no reliable rankings of law schools on an international basis, like there are for business schools. This makes sense, because law degrees are generally country-specific and not designed to allow for a lot of international mobility. So it doesn't make sense to compare them on an international basis.

I do not believe there are LLM rankings outside the LLM guide.

Anyhow, a LLB ranking is a good measure for LLM programs as the postgraduate is just a reflex of what an undergraduate program is. Just a few institutions offers LLM without having a LLB.
