UCC School of Law’s academic reputation drives elite ranking.

UCC School of Law has been ranked among the world’s elite Law Schools in the latest QS World University Rankings by Subject.

Based on academic reputation, employer reputation and research impact, the QS subject rankings identify the world’s leading schools in particular fields.

Each of these individual components are combined to produce results for each subject ranking, with weightings adapted for each discipline.
