The Guardian released their 2018 UK law school rankings and Cambridge and Oxford remained ranked at numbers 1 and 2, respectively. After that, however, there was considerable movement. University of Leeds jumped from 22 last year to 8 in this year’s rankings. Not to be outdone, London South Bank University jumped from 58 last year all the way up to 13 this year.
And, of course, for every school that jumps in the zero-sum game of rankings, another fell. This is all the more reason to carefully select your schools on the basis of personal fit so you’re less likely to be disappointed in any change in the school’s rankings between application and graduation.
