The Schulich School of Law ranks among world's best law schools again in annual global university rankings
In the 2019 Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings, the Schulich School of Law jumped ahead nine spots from last year, landing at No. 65 out of 100, up from No. 74.
“We’re delighted to see our school recognized for the second year in a row in the Times Higher Education subject ranking for law,” says Schulich School of Law Dean Camille Cameron. “For 135 years we have enjoyed an enviable reputation, but no one affiliated with our school takes this reputation for granted — we are out there earning it anew every day through our teaching, research, and public service. We are also focused on the future, continually challenging ourselves to look for opportunities to be better and to live the Weldon Tradition by making a difference in the world around us.”
Law schools were evaluated separately for the first time in the 2018 THE rankings, one of the most prominent global university rankings. It was also the first time Dalhousie had ranked in the top 100 in a THE subject-specific ranking. Schulich Law ranked sixth in the country in 2018, one of only nine Canadian law schools to be ranked in the top 100. This year Schulich Law ranks fifth, one of only seven Canadian law schools in the top 100.
In the 2019 results, our law school’s subject research score increased by 25.5 points (from 28.5 to 54), which largely contributes to the improvement in overall placement. The research component consists of volume, income, and reputation.
The THE global university rankings evaluate research-intensive universities across their core missions: teaching, research, citations, knowledge transfer, and international outlook.
