Student reviews – best law universities

These rankings are created by measuring factors like academic reputation, the number of published research papers, salaries after graduation, and others. But they don’t always take into account what the current and former students think about the university, its academic staff, and the overall quality of education.

On, we offer students the opportunity to leave a review of their study experience and thus help future international students make a better choice. When you select a university on our portal, you’ll also see the overall star rating (0-5 stars) and the reviews left by future graduates or past alumni.
