School of Law flies high in global rankings

The University of Nottingham's School of Law has been named in the top 40 law schools worldwide, according to the prestigious Times Higher Education Subject Rankings 2018.

Listing the top 1,000 universities in the world, the ranking is the only global university performance table to judge research-intensive universities across all of their core missions: teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. They use 13 performance indicators to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons, trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and governments.

The School of Law is consistently ranked among the leading law schools in the UK, placing 6th in terms of research power in the most recent Research Excellence Framework, 6th in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018 and 10th in the Complete University Guide 2018. It was also in the top 100 worldwide for law in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2017.

The school achieved an exceptional 96% overall satisfaction rating in the latest National Student Survey, the highest of any traditional University. It also ranked 5th in the UK for boosting graduate salaries in The Economist British university rankings 2017, with graduates earning an average of £4,844 more than expected five years after graduation.

Professor Todd Landman, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Faculty of Social Sciences, said: "I am delighted and hugely impressed. Nottingham has a strong global reputation, and the School of Law's achievement provides an excellent example of this reputation at work."
