The power list, published earlier this week, combines data from The Complete University Guide, The Times Good University Guide and The Guardian University Rankings. It suggests an average figure of an overall ranking of the top performing establishments.
According to Legal Cheek, the top 20 law schools shown in 2018’s list reflected findings from last year. Durham, University College London, Leeds and York also remained in the top 10.
Other Russell Group universities came up short in the table. Manchester Met, Manchester University and Liverpool sat way down the list, in 39th, 40th and 45th place. Southampton came out 50th.
Speaking about the ‘table of tables’ Professor Alastair Mullis, head of the law school, said:
“Our combined league table is useful for us internally. And though the quality of universities and courses is a very complex story, particularly something like the student experience, we do take such rankings, and the statistics on which they are based, into account.”
The aim of producing the table was to show more clarity on university performance. The comparison highlighted some discrepancies in the rankings when it first published last year, with some universities seemingly performing better in one list, and less so in another.
