Best Law Schools in North America

Below is the list of best universities in North America ranked based on their research performance in Law. A graph of 2.45M citations received by 232K academic papers made by 463 universities in North America 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.
