Cardiff Law School has a long tradition of carrying out world-leading and internationally renowned research and prides itself on its vibrant research culture. The 2008 Research Assessment Exercise recognised the School as a leading legal research institution, with most activity classed as world-leading or internationally excellent. We were ranked 7th in the UK where there are over 100 law schools. These results are consistent with the top grading we received in previous assessments since 1996. Our internationally recognised research is closely linked to the high quality teaching we provide.
