University rank #44 (QS) ,
In the LSE tradition, the Department practices “research-led” teaching. The Department produces research of the highest standards of international excellence, and in so doing it plays a leading role in the development of foundational legal scholarship. 

About

Since the foundation of LSE, the study of law has been an integral part of the School’s mission. To fulfil this undertaking, the School has developed one of the UK’s leading Law Departments. In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise carried out by the UK Higher Education Funding Councils it was one of only eight such departments to be given a top rating of 5* (meaning the Department’s research was ranked as being “of international excellence”) and a score of five out of five in the similar evaluation of teaching.
