After entering the top 50 in the THE Law ranking last year, our faculty progressed considerably and climbed from the 46th to the 40th place. Of all Dutch law faculties, only Maastricht, Leiden, Amsterdam and Utrecht were able to reach the top 40 of this prestigious ranking. Our faculty also rises in the ranking of European law faculties from place 16 in 2019 to place 9 in 2020.
