Newcastle has been ranked the number one UK law school in the prestigious Sunday Times University Guide 2012. The Law School’s ranking adds to University’s overall ranking as the 12th best university in the UK.
The authoritative guide which ranks universities and departments according to criteria of teaching excellence, student satisfaction, peer assessment, research quality, the number of graduates assumed to be unemployed, number of A-levels, and drop-out rates adds to the Law School’s impressive results in the 2011 National Student Satisfaction Survey (NSS), where Newcastle Law School scored an impressive 98% satisfaction for the third year running.
Deputy Head of Newcastle Law School Dr Jonathan Galloway says:
Newcastle Law School has consistently been found to be among the top 10 UK Law Schools for some time and receiving the top ranking from The Sunday Times is an excellent achievement for our Law School. As a relatively small Law School, our strength is in fostering a learning community among students and staff with a shared objective; the provision of high quality teaching by academics at the forefront of research in their fields, and supported by high quality administrative and library staff. This ranking, and that of the recent NSSS result, is a welcome recognition of the tremendous work by Newcastle Law School staff but most of all it highlights the strength of a Newcastle law degree to current and future students.
