UP Law Ranked Among Top 100 Law Faculties in the World

Posted on October 28, 2022

UP Law celebrates the latest 2023 Times Higher Education (THE) Subject Rankings for Law, confirming its position as the best law faculty in South Africa and on the African Continent for the sixth year in a row. According to the latest rankings released on Tuesday, UP Law ranks number 78 in the top 100 law schools worldwide. This year saw 33 newly ranked law schools.

The THE ranking assesses law faculties based on their performance in five pillars, including teaching, research quantity, and quality. Additionally, an assessment of the international outlook of law faculties is based on factors such as the number of international staff and students and the number of international collaborations.

An elated Dean, Professor Elsabe Schoeman, thanked the UP Law community for their sustained excellence and hard work, especially through the challenging years of the Covid-19 pandemic. Emphasising the alignment of the Faculty’s strategic goals with those of the University, amongst others, to strengthen our international profile and global engagement through research, as well as to strengthen our social responsiveness and impact on society, the Dean called on everyone to continue to focus on research that matters and to intensify research-informed teaching. “UP Law is committed to tackling the most pressing issues in our society and to work towards a better world for all”, the Dean said.
