Best Universities for International Law in Europe

Below is the list of best universities in Europe ranked based on their research performance in International Law. A graph of 106K citations received by 17.7K academic papers made by 208 universities in Europe was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with an official site as it's constantly changing data.
