Indian weekly magazines India Today and Outlook India have both ranked NLSIU Bangalore and Nalsar Hyderabad as India's top law schools, while NLIU Bhopal and ILS Pune occupied third place in each respective ranking and NUJS Kolkata found itself in sixth and fifth place.
NLSIU (pictured) and Nalsar both came out on top of this year's India Today and Outlook law school rankings.
While India Today's top two positions were unchanged from last year, in Outlook's ranking Nalsar displaced NUJS Kolkata in second spot, pushing it to fifth place behind NLIU Bhopal.
Campus Law Centre of Delhi University was ranked fourth by India Today but did not participate in Outlook's rankings.
Symbiosis Pune came in at fifth and sixth of India Today and Outlook's ranking respectively.
New high entrants to India Today's list included new national law schools GNLU Gandhinagar and HNLU Raipur in ninth and 11th positions respectively.
There were no other major changes in India Today's rankings, except for NUJS Kolkata climbing two places to sixth and ILS Pune dropping to seventh from fifth last year.
Outlook India's rankings, however, saw seven out of 10 ranked colleges rise the ranks as three colleges - Delhi University (sixth ranked in 2009), Government Law College Mumbai (eighth) and NLU Jodhpur (seventh) - did not participate in its rankings this year.
Outlook ranked ILS Pune in third place but NLIU Bhopal was by far the fastest climber, jumping from tenth to fourth this year.
NUJS saw the biggest drop in Outlook's rankings from second rank last year ahead of Nalsar to fifth place this year.
