Quacquarelli Symonds' (QS) global university ranking has placed the Athens Law School among the world's top 300 universities for studying law, a list led by Harvard, Oxford, Cambridge, Yale and Stanford.
According to QS, the Greek institution ranks 230th in the world and 109th in Europe.
Athens Law School was also the only one in the country to make the list this year.
A planned visit to Greece later this month by a delegation of representatives from 30 American universities interested in exploring the prospects for cooperation with Greek educational institutions has been put off indefinitely due to concerns about the ongoing spread of the coronavirus, Kathimerini understands.
For a second time in three years Aristotle University of Thessaloniki's Department of Classical Studies was ranked 16th in its field by the influential QS World University Rankings.
Some 4,500 universities were evaluated in the annual publication, including some of the world's top institutions, such as Oxford, Cambridge and Harvard.
