Ranking of National Universities in Japan, Faculty of Law category, by difficulty of passing the entrance exam

There are two types of universities in Japan; National/Public universities and Private universities.

National universities are run by the government. And public universities are run by prefectures/municipalities. Private universities are run by private sectors.

The tuition fee of national/public universities is less expensive than the fee of private universities. 

Each university and each faculty have their own measurement to choose applicants. So it is hard to combine all universities and all faculties into one ranking list. The following list tells only about "faculty/department of law (law school)" category.

The systems of the entrance examination are different between national/public universities and private universities. Hence the ranking of national universities and the ranking of private universities are commonly divided. This time the list shows about only national universities. 

Deviation score is a kind of index which indicates the difficulty level. Large number means that it is hard to enter that university. For instance, The University of Tokyo is the hardest school to get into.
