The Guardian Releases 2018 Law School Ranking

Cambridge, Oxford, and QMUL lead this year's ranking

As part of its annual university guide, UK publication The Guardian has released the 2018 edition of League Table for Law, which ranks law schools in the UK.

As was the case last year, Cambridge tops this year's ranking, and is followed immediately by Oxford.

Queen Mary (QMUL) has risen two spots this year to take the number-three position.

Durham has also risen and this year places fourth.

LSE, which was ranked third last year, has dropped to fifth for the 2018 ranking. Dundee has climbed from position eight to number six.

The University of East Anglia has jumped from number 10 last year to number seven this year.

Leeds—which rose 14 spots—York and UCL round out the top ten, in that order. You can see the top 20 law schools and their changes from last year, below.

For its university guide, the Guardian ranks the schools based on a variety of metrics, including student satisfaction, student to staff ratio, and the percentage of graduates who find graduate-level jobs within six months of graduation.
