Best universities for law degrees in 2018 British magazine ranks best law schools in the world. Want to know how U.S. law schools stack up against their global counterparts? For the first time, Times Higher Education has ranked the top 100 universities in the world for law degrees, and five U.S. law schools made the top 10. Three American universities — Duke, Stanford and Yale — topped the worldwide ranking at first, second and third, respectively. University of Chicago came in fourth, and Harvard was ninth. Nearly a third of the universities in the top 100 ranking are in the U.S. Times Higher Education is a weekly magazine based in London. Its world rankings are based on 13 performance indicators, including learning environment, the volume and reputation of research, and research influence. The methodology was recalibrated for law schools. To be considered, a university must have published at least 100 papers related to the subject of law in the past five years. Duke topped the Times Higher Education rankings with its wealth of academic opportunities for law students. Duke University School of Law publishes eight academic journals, and students can enroll in a variety of joint-degree programs with other Duke graduate schools, such as the business school and medical school. In fact, nearly 25 percent of Duke Law students are enrolled in joint-degree programs. Stanford, which was close behind in second place, stood out in part because of its low student-to-staff ratio. Times Higher Education also noted that Stanford University Law School offers nearly 280 different course titles, allowing students to develop specialized expertise. Moreover, the law school is home to 50 student organizations and 12 legal journals. Yale Law School made the top three, with Times Higher Education acknowledging the strength of Yale’s legal clinics. Close to 80 percent of Yale Law School students participate in clinics. Other countries represented in the top 10 were: the United Kingdom, with University of Cambridge in fifth place and University of Oxford in sixth; and Australia, with University of Melbourne taking seventh place. University of Toronto in Canada was ranked 10th. Top 10 Duke University Stanford University Yale University University of Chicago University of Cambridge (U.K.) University of Oxford (U.K.) Univ.
