School of Law leaps up Good University Guide
The School of Law at the University of Surrey has risen up the rankings in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2014, jumping by an impressive 23 places to 24th in the annual league tables.
The remarkable climb comes after the School broke into the top 20 in the Guardian University Guide earlier in the year, ranking 18th in the country.
Law at Surrey has been on the rise for a number of reasons. Members of our academic staff have international reputations for research and are experienced legal practitioners, providing consultancy to law firms, governments, non-governmental organisations and businesses around the world.
Enjoying excellent links with local, national and international legal communities, the School has particular expertise in environmental law, corporate and commercial law, anti-corruption law, criminal law, public law, European law and international law. The School is also renowned for its extra-curricular activities and is one of only two UK Law schools to offer students the option of a Professional Training placement
The School’s success reflects that of the University as a whole, with Surrey climbing to 12th in the overall Good University Guide rankings.
