We are a community of students, staff and alumni from all over the world, who bring an unparalleled international and interdisciplinary outlook in teaching and researching law. We are committed to building a vibrant, equitable and truly inclusive environment and this is critical to our identity. Our community is one of the largest at LSE, and has played a major role in policy debates, policy-making and the education of lawyers and law teachers globally.
Our approach is to challenge existing ways of thinking, and seek to understand the causes of things. This has always been our mission at LSE Law School.
Closely linked to this innovative approach has been the exploration of new fields of study. Many important subjects were first taught and examined systematically from an academic perspective at LSE Law School. We pioneered the study of banking law, taxation law, civil litigation, company law, labour law, family law, aspects of welfare law, and studies of the legal system and the legal profession, and continue to be the leading thinkers in our field.

LSE Law School is one of the world’s best schools. In the UK, it was ranked in the top 5 law schools overall by The Complete University Guide in 2022. In the QS World University rankings for 2021, the law school was ranked sixth (out of 200 worldwide). We strive to accomplish excellence in all of our endeavours, helping students, alumni and staff to achieve their full potential in everything they do.
