I am delighted that the Edinburgh Law School has continued to rank very highly in the 2021 QS world rankings. Our position as a world top 25 law school reflects the continued commitment of all of the law School’s staff to delivering the best possible education to our students. We shan’t rest on our laurels, however, but will be striving to rise further up the rankings next year.
