The World Justice Project conducts an annual rule of law index study which measures how the rule of law is experienced and perceived by the general public across the world. This provides information on how the UK compares to other countries. The UKs global ranking is shown below, for each year that the study has been conducted:

  • 2014 – 13th
  • 2015 – 12th
  • 2016 – 10th
  • 2017 – 11th
