    What are the top international undergraduate law schools? The top 20 or so would be good, because I am looking into law but the universities I am looking at just offer JD courses which are not open for undergraduates.

    Thanks

    UCL and LSE offer a couple places each on their join LLB/JD course with Columbia.

    As for top unis in the UK/US, you get the classic Harvard/Yale/Stanford/Princeton/Columbia in the US, and Oxford/Cambridge/LSE/UCL/King's in the UK. Of course, there are top law schools in HK, China and Switzerland if you're interested..

    Edit: In which region specifically are you thinking of studying?

    I'm looking into doing an LLB course.

    I haven't researched into Switzerland before but I have visited the country many time and love the culture there so I am going to look into courses over there.

    I would like to work in Canada, although the good universities over there only offer JD courses.

    Well AFAIK, the job market in Canada/US is terribly competitive and unemployment rates seem to be going up and up and up...

    Though LSE and UCL has been mentioned already for their LLB/JD program, they are notoriously difficult to get into; usually requiring you to get a high first and be placed in the top 1% of your program...

    Why not just to a normal LLB course at any solid uni then do your LLM in Canada?
