It would have been criminal if Harvard University had relinquished top spot in the Law subject rankings, so it’s a relief to see the American institution come out on top again. Harvard has been the top-ranked university for Law for five years in a row now.
This year’s Law rankings feature 100 more universities than previous years, allowing for a more diverse range of countries to be represented. 39 different countries have at least one university included in this year’s rankings, six more than were featured last year.
