Eight out of the 11 law schools at Scottish universities have moved up the rankings in the newly published 2017 edition of the Complete University Guide.
The guide provides a table of 100 law teaching institutions, ranked according to a weighting of scores for entry standards, student satisfaction, research quality and graduate prospects.
After Cambridge and then Oxford at the top, followed by three London institutions, University College London, the London School of Economics and Kings College London, Glasgow is the next highest, up one place at number 6, followed by Durham at 7 (down from 3) and Edinburgh at 8, also up one.
Four more Scottish law schools make the top 25: Aberdeen at 12 (down one), Strathclyde at 14 (up one), Dundee at 22 (up six) and Robert Gordon University, which is claiming to be the only law school from a modern (post-1992) university in the top 25, up six places to 25.
Abertay has climbed 12 places from 50 to 38, Stirling is down four from 36 to 40, Edinburgh Napier up four from 67 to 63, Glasgow Caledonian down seven from 65 to 72, and the University of the West of Scotland rises from 100 to 90.
