The Faculty of Law is pleased to share that it has been ranked among the world’s top universities to study law by the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings. The 2020 ranking by subject declared McGill the 20th best school to study law worldwide among 190 universities, placing McGill in the worldwide Top 20 for a third consecutive year.

The THE’s Law ranking, introduced in 2017, is calculated using the same 13 performance indicators as their World University Rankings, which fall under five categories: teaching, research, citations, international outlook, and industry income.

“I’m pleased to see McGill Law once again recognized in this way,” said Dean Robert Leckey. “We prepare our students to tackle problems that cross boundaries and assume leadership in a wide range of fields, and our world-class researchers advance knowledge and propose solutions relating to many of our society’s most pressing issues.”
