The university is located in the world's first national city park and is only a few minutes away from downtown Stockholm. The Faculty of Law at Stockholm University is the largest Law Faculty in Sweden, both in number of researchers and in number of students and currently ranks 45th in the world for law on the THE World University Rankings 2018.
