Kent Law School’s strong international character and world-leading reputation for research sees it ranked 51st in today’s prestigious Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2020 for law.
Only 190 law schools across the globe met strict criteria (related to the number of publications published in the last five years) to be ranked. Out of this total number, only 33 UK law schools made the list.
Within the ranking, Kent is 18th in the world for ‘international outlook’ and is listed among the top 60 best law schools in the world for research.
The THE World University Rankings are the only global performance tables that judge research-intensive universities across 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators, grouped into five key areas: teaching (the learning environment); research (volume, income and reputation); citations (research influence); international outlook (staff, students and research); and industry income (knowledge transfer).
In addition to the THE World University Rankings, Kent Law School performs strongly in two other leading global league tables; Kent is ranked among the top 150 law schools in the world in the 2019 Shanghai Ranking’s Global Ranking of Academic Subject and among the top 200 law schools in the world in the QS World University Rankings 2019.
Kent Law School also maintains a strong and consistent performance in all three major UK league tables, with a top 20 ranking in all three for 2020: 16th in The Guardian University Guide 2020 for law; 17th in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020 for law; and 18th in The Complete University Guide 2020 for law.
