Best European Law Schools You Should Keep Your Eyes on in 2019

Dreaming of becoming a lawyer? Thinking of studying at a university or Law school in Europe? Here, at Studyportals, we'd like you to find the best fit for your interest in legal studies by offering you a list of options you may want to consider for your Law studies abroad.

Law schools in the U.S. and the UK have the most generous LL.M. degree offers as well as worldwide prestige with universities and colleges included in many rankings following the most diverse criteria. However, it’s not always easy to find lists of top Law schools in Europe. This doesn’t mean by far that Europe doesn’t offer its fair share of good Law degree education both at undergraduate and graduate level.

Using rankings provided by QS World University Rankings for 2018, we have compiled a list of top universities for Law in different countries around Europe. To create the worldwide Law school rankings list, QS has used global surveys measuring academic and employer reputation, as well as research citations data, adapted to the Law discipline.
