Law School Rankings

Law school rankings are often a key determinant for deciding on an LL.M. program. Outlets like USNews and The Guardian regularly publish rankings of law schools.

Keep in mind that many of these rankings do not directly rank LL.M. programs, instead focusing on the law schools themselves or their undergraduate programs. However, LL.M. applicants can use the rankings to get a sense of a law school’s reputation and the factors that go into this, such as faculty strength and diversity.

When looking at rankings information, be sure to take methodology into account. The most robust rankings use a variety of factors, from post-graduation salary to diversity within law programs, to rank programs.

Below LLM GUIDE’s rankings—which list LL.M. programs only by popularity—you’ll find links to a number of different law school and LL.M. rankings.
