NLSIU BangaloreIndian 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.

This is totally messed up. Did they give a criteria on which the ranks were based ?
Why can this not be more transparent? Look at the Management rankings. They have a different set of rankings per each criteria and then they give an overall rank.

When will we ever get a proper ranking ? Something which can be trusted.

HNLU not in the top 10?? Well get this: Ankur Chawla (son of Prabhu Chawla) has been accused of bribing the Company Law Board chief by the CBI. India Today did not report on this very important piece of news. This means they either lack journalistic integrity or are not aware of important developments in the legal world. Either way they are not fit to comment on HNLU.

I don't mean to harp on the Ankur Chawla thing, but I just came across the judgement in the case: www.indiankanoon.org/doc/678165/
"...no action has been taken against the third co-accused Ankur Chawla despite the fact that he is specifically named in the FIR and where in view of the Court prima facie there is sufficient evidence to show that he was also a part of the conspiracy not only to commit the offence but also abettor of the offence. Beyond this the Court does not want to observe anything and leave the things to the wisdom of the investigating agency..."

I am not some upset HNLU loyalist trying to vilify Prabhu Chawla and India Today. My point is that in India we tend to treat newspaper reports as the gospel truth. We never question whether the media itself is honest. Headlines Today goes after A Raja but why not Ankur Chawla?

Please look at HNLU objectively. It may not deserve to be in the top 3 but compare the faculty, placements, moot court performance etc with Symbi and Amity.

LI will be able to come out with a much better job and help law school aspirants to take an informed decision since LI is followed closely by these aspirants too.

Kian, I totally second what #13 says. I think thats a very good idea. I mean, the surveys are conducted by magazines whose core focus is not the legal industry, and they are coordinated by general market research agencies.

It would be useful to have a survey from a web portal dedicated to law.

thanks sameer..

but seriously these survey agencies they never visit the campus and just go ahead and come up with these obnoxious rankings and its not only india today, but also outlook and to some extent mint. credibility is nil. and the biggest losers are the students who actually in the end follow these rankings as the bible.

kian!! I am not saying this becos my college is not there in the ranking. I am an ex-student of NALSAR, its very much up there. but still i feel these rankings are a bunch of crap and LI can actually help improve this.

Kian my frend I hope you listening!!!

I trust these rankings. I am going to make one of THE most crucial decisions of my life based on them.

I have decided NOT to go to NUJS Kolkata. Why? Because it's obviously not as good as ILS, Symbiosis, NLIU Bhopal, Delhi Law Faculty.. and NOWHERE in the league of NALSAR, NLSIU..


I feel so happy that I have you, India Today & Outlook, to guide me through such turbulent times.. :-)

May god bless you for all your good work.

Regards,
Your Average Gullible Reader

PS
What was I thinking? Trusting all those LST tutors, LegallyIndia 'counselors', law students, my daddy's friends, senior counsels, law firm lawyers..? You had the answer all along!

I am sure that I will make the right choice NOW, and that you will stick to these rankings and not make me regret my decision for the next few years to come.


NLIU Bhopal / ILS / Delhi Law Faculty / Symbiosis.. here I come!!
NUJS - you're too lowly ranked to attract good people now. shame on you.

I am amazed at the level of comments posted here. I work in a large and top law firm and we have students from all law schools, including NLS, NUJS, NALSAR, NLIU, NLU, ILS Symbiosis and some others. All of our associates are of certain quality and thats why they have got in. Comments of the nature posted here are not of any worth. Work hard wherever you are and you will do well in life.

To,
Dear Average Gullible Reader,

Subject: Our Rankings.

You ask me how I ranked these schools?
Oh, Sir. I have to admit.
My journalists never had any clues,
So we decided - Oh well, to damn with it.

I'll have you know -
we used some cutting-edge techniques,
Perhaps, you've heard of them before?
Shooting Darts & Coin Tosses helped us a little,
But, Inky-Pinky-Ponky - was the handiest of them all!
And whenever we found ourselves lost,
nothing worked better than a lucky draw!

After all, who were we to decide?
We just let the Gods have their say.
When you don't have the almighty on your side,
The top slots were naturally kept at bay.

But we played fair -
we aren't fools, we gave second chances,
Of course, involved was a little pay,
that could alter the consequences.

We know how you are influences by our rankers,
Duh! That's why we sell these to you!
It's made all the more memorable when we walk,
hail & hearty, to our delighted bankers.

We got them wrong, you said? That can't be true!
Even if so, Poor kid, You must understand -
It's a learning curve for us too!

We'll get it right soon, I promise,
Haven't I told you that enough times already?
We'll shuffle them up once more,
even fly in our prized reported from the other shore!
His name is Kishan, Preddy.

For you, Poor Kid, next year may be too far,
You will be in a law school of our insightful recommendation,
We, at the Magazine, would have covered our arse,
And you may well be subjected to some sub-standard education,
But at least by then you wouldn't care enough to call our rankings a farce!


The Editor,
The Magazines That Know How to Sell.

Major flaw - GNLU IS NOT IN PATIALA. There is a reason why it is called Gujarat National Law University. Its in Gandhinagar. Need a map ?

I guess just that point tell us how credible you comment on GLC Mumbai is. All colleges are good.

@21: "When you mention a famous race horse, they always ask you, 'From which stable?' The stable is important. It establishes the ancestry and the breed." Fali S. Nariman in "Before Memory Fades" [He says it in the context of the chamber a lawyer hails from. But I think it applies equally to law schools.]

I think all law schools should look at the broader issue of credibility. In my opinion rather than allowing themselves to be ranked and then cribbing, all self respecting law schools must take a decision that they will not participate in rankings conducted by entities not related to the legal profession. The recruiters and prospective aspirants have better sources to rely on.

And the Gebbels-ian trick of India Today is not going to work. Their repetition of their preferred lie over years is not going to pull down the great institution of NUJS even one bit.

I think it does not matter which college you come from. Law is a field where what matters is what you learn after college. I have seen people from various colleges making it big in the legal field, whether it be law firms, in-house or as independent counsels.

So my advice to all young students wanting to join law colleges is that don't take these rankings seriously. You'd learn more during your 2 month internships than you would in the whole acedemic year. So do your internships sincerely, participate in moot courts, write articles and always be involved in research work.

2) NUJS, Kolkata

3) NALSAR Hyderabad ( Down due to state reservation and political problems plus good faculty has left NALSAR)

4) NLU, Delhi

5) NLU, Jodhpur

6) ILS, Pune

7) NLIU, Bhopal

8) GNLU, Gandhinagar

9) Symbiosis, Pune

10) GLC, Mumbai

Dear All,

Thanks to all commenters expressing confidence in Legally India's ability to compile a better law school ranking.

We would love to, however, we will only do so once we are able to do a credible job of it.

Right now, I think we are not quite there yet but we have some ideas to hopefully get there some point.

If you have any thoughts on how the present ranking could be improved, please also leave a comment, we are always very happy to hear from you.

Best regards,
Kian

hahahaa NUJS is down to 5th.... and there are colleges like CLC Delhi, Symbi, NLIU and nalsar above it???? hhahahahahaa ok so much for the college ranking... i think by making such a list, the magazine has lost its charm and respect as far as helping students choose the colleges... so much for the issue on colleges... it should be stopped from next yr onwards because it is highly misleading and may ruin the career of students.

They are one of the most articulate rankings I hav ever seen.. Well done!! However, I am quite sceptical about NLU-D and placing it above established universities like NLIU, ILS, etc doesn't seem to make any sense. They hav a nice infrastructure and faculty but, they hav to prove their mettle in other activities too.. It has a very bright future and there is no doubt about it. But, according to me they are currently not above NLIU, ILS or NLU-J

dear editor/administrator,

Yesterday i had put up a comment stating that 'the rankings were nothing short of "bovine defecation"', which in other words means "bullshit"..... its fine when people use a slang on the forum and the posts get published.... what "bull shit"!!!!!!!!!!!! if this is the level of competence legally india is endowed wit, pray never try to compile law school rankings or for that matter anything....u will make a terrible mess outta whle thng.....

LO SM

[Well, moderation is not watertight, no. As witty as it was, the reason your comment did not go up yesterday was because it was one of several comments saying the same thing (albeit in different words). We were considering publishing it but it did not seem to add much by itself. In any case, comments that actually make an argument are usually more likely to get through than those trying to just repeat abuse in colourful language. -Ed]

@ # 54 Thanks for the compliment. I have kept in mind factors like faculty, infrastructure, recruitment's, quality of students, libraries, mooting, opportunities etc. I have spoken to many students and the ranking compiled by me has been made taking into account their opinions, preferences etc. As far as NLU-D is concerned it is as good as NLU-J but NLU-D has a slight edge due to better faculty, location, student preferences etc. I am sure many students will endorse these rankings.

Cannot believe that India Today put colleges like Campus Law Centre and Symblyiosis above NUJS ans NLUJ. Its ridiculous and puts a lot of young students at risk of choosing wrong colleges. @60 - At the moment, there is nothing to choose between NUJS and NALSAR (unless you wish to go by the size of campus) - while NALSAR has slightly better facilities, it is bogged down by reservations. And NUJS has the best faculty in the country coupled with consistently excellent placements over the years. I would put the two at par, if not NUJS higher.

A common pattern has developed over the years. Every time these magazines declare the rankings of colleges, there is whole bunch of NUJS fucchas (i believe only the first or second year students have the time and inclination to barge a/b and make placid assertions)who take affront and start playing their own songs. The problem, however, is not with the song but with the tune. It seems they only know how to play vuvuzela or worst still. The self boasting is limitless with reliligious consistency. The insinuations even surpasses the prior.

Such is the intent that not a single medium which permits free expression is left unexploited. I wonder if they are of any good other than performing this yearly ritual. Would like to know whether it's the faculty or the pigeon-holed campus which deseves the blsme. Take my advice, all you people indulging in inventing their own rankings just lay off. there are more sensical thing to do in life than paying nearly 2 lac a year and spend time spreading concoct versions hoping it would gather approver. Sorry to say this but repeated bullshit does not become wisdom.

The only common pattern that has developed over the years is that of hapless students being misled by silly rankings.

That, and a few selfish men who stand to gain from these outrageous rankings joining in for the chorus. These include people such as promoters, and dare I say, students from institutions who find themselves ranked much higher than anyone could have ever imagined. Join the party while you can. Why not? This just became one of their very few claims to fame!

The students may disagree. In their heart, they themselves may know the truth. But well, who cares? These rankings don’t matter to them or even us. Heck, if your college is ranked higher, it just adds to your snob value.

First, you talk about free expression.

You seem to assert that the editors of popular magazines deserve to be kept on a pedestal (maybe just a wee bit higher, eh?) and anyone else’s (no matter what third grade college fucchas you might think them to be) free expression should be subservient to such expert opinions. India Today decided to come out with the rankings. I disagreed with them. I will express myself. “Exploiting a medium with religious consistency”? That’s exactly what India Today does, not me. They exploit their standing as Big Press and sell a story to gullible readers.

So then, students protest & write comments. You may disagree with them. But alas, no one’s put a gun to your head. Scoot.

Second, it does not take an extraordinarily intelligent man (don’t worry, I wouldn’t accuse you of being one) to conclude that not all posters here are from NUJS.

Third, yes. We play our own song. It’s time that Big Press started shouldering the consequences of its reporting. Can you honestly say these rankings are accurate? A few years back, India Today didn’t even rank NUJS amongst the top 10/top 25 law schools in India. The inconsistency in their rankings, as well as the arbitrary scores awarded to schools is almost criminal.

Do they not know that their target audience is a vulnerable lot of students who may be placing their careers in the hands of these reports?

Fourth, I don’t agree with these rankings & I have good reasons for that.

I’ve been around this debate for long enough to know what most students, teachers, lawyers, recruiters and even those in the business of legal industry analysis have to say. Rainmaker, LST, Prime, etc – after all, they do keep a close watch on law school standings; and dare I say – even LegallyIndia – which seems to hold NUJS in high regard if you refer to the write ups around the time of the MPL wrap-up.

The year I joined law school, I left a ‘highly ranked’ law school (per India Today) after 1 year of schooling and joined NUJS. I’ve never regretted my decision. The same year, my ex-law school was ranked amongst the top 5 law schools by India Today, and NUJS was conspicuously absent.

In every possible way, NUJS surpassed my expectations. Where would I be had I not looked beyond these rankings? But.. there ARE students who don’t.

Fifth, I am not in the first or the second year. Why do I have time to post here? Because I owe this to my law school & I owe this to every student out there who may be misguided by irresponsible Big Press & posters such as yourself. NUJS offered me unparalleled opportunities. It was my second preference as a law school, after NLS – but all through my five years at school, I never wished that I was elsewhere.

The faculty is amongst the best in the country, the student body boasts of an eclectic mix of people. The campus life was vibrant and the atmosphere fantastic. Sure, the length that the wall runs around our campus may be shorter than some of the other schools. But enclosed within was a beautiful & calming green spread over 5 acres with enough room for all 500 odd students to find their own space, and small enough for them to mingle with each other & never feel lost. After all, we had an entire sports stadium & a fabulous city at our doorstep – THAT was our campus too.



Friend, it isn’t about “self-boasting”. It’s solidarity. Thank you for your two cents, but my juniors will do just fine without your help.

Through these years, rankings have never been our friend. We’ve gotten by. Our alumni, our year on year achievements, our standing (no, not in a ranking)– we let them speak for themselves. Forgive my juniors for wanting to share their enthusiasm with you here.

P.S. ENGINNERING COLLEGES HAVE ALSO BEEN RANKED NEGLIGENTLY WITH WEST BENGAL COLLEGES NOT IN PICTURE (WITH THE EXCUSE THAT THEY DID NOT PARTICIPATE)....WHO KNOWS, WELL THE GUYS AT BENGAL ENGINNERING AND SHIBPUR COLLEGE, HOWARH (THE BEST COLLEGE IN KOLKATA) ASSERT THEY HAVE SENT ALL INFORMATION ABOUT THEIR COLLEGE ON TIME - --

Look at all the top law firms and top tier corporates? What do ya see? Its NUJS all the way! They all are fighting over nujsians !! Check out the illustrous faculty and then lets set the records straight.

The Outlook and India Today rankings are not reliable especially because they have ILS in the top bracket! Ghastly !! and NLIU BHopal is definitely a tier II college.

The Top Tier consists of NLS, NUJS and Nalsar.......that is now a well known fact......... the rest of the crowd just follows !!

@66 and others : Sum and substance is that we accept that these rankings are bullshit. I think we are all in agreement that NLS, NUJS, NALSAR form the top tier of law schools in our country and NLUJ and NLIU ought to be ranked 4th and 5th. Beyond that, it is somewhat vague but if one had to pick nos. 6-10, it would include GNLU, Faculty of Law (DU), GLC Mumbai, ILS and Symbiosis in that order. Cannot be much disagreement there right?

@75 : Very well done NUJS freak !! Congratulations on your unexpressed parameters to declare a college as Tier 2, 20 or 20K. For sure India Today or Outlook rankings do not reflect the true picture but rattling about other colleges highlighht nothing but your wicked frustration.

So called "tier 2 collegs" by a mis-informed Sachin Malhan, who has never been to some of these colleges, and his "loyal students" at "elite law schools" prove it time and again that they are bogged down by nothing but a "copy-cat mentality". Having not seen these "tier 2 colleges" ever and without having met any of its students, such conclusions appear nothing but childish and dull.

79,

That's one way to look at it.

But that would be selfish. Don't forget - these rankings can potentially ruin many careers every year. Not every prospective law student prepares at LSTs & Prime centers, or read comments on LI every day. They may actually fall prey to some poor reporting.

When I filled out my college applications, my parents & relatives were in favor of me going to Symbiosis & not the national law schools (any of them) - because India Today ranked all NLUs low that year. Boy, I was glad I was at LST & I could speak to Sachin. (There was very little school students knew about law schools back then anyways)..

It is time some action is taken against these magazines.
Whatever respect I had for India Today, Outlook.. it's one blow to it after another every year.
I hope they realize the gravity of the consequences.

Have they forgotten the might of the pen?

I guess 66 is right when he says - as long as the magazine sells, they don't really care.


There's a song which fits this situation.

Live Your Life (T. I.)

"..Seems as though you lost sight
Of what's important when depositin'
Them checks into your bank account
And you up out of poverty

Your values is a disarray, prioritizin' horribly
Unhappy with the riches 'cause you're poor morally
Ignorin' all prior advice and forewarnin'
And we mighty full of ourselves all of a sudden, aren't we?"

So, here we are, once again the experts at India Today and Outlook have come out with their take on the law schools. Only 8 Nationals in the top 25 institutions which impart legal education and we have entrants like AMU, Jamia, and the coveted "BVP"...but last year, while deciding which law school I should join, did I use these rankings as a guide? NO!! Do I know anyone who blindly followed these rankings? Not yet!! Only jobless uncles and aunties have the time to read this crap and ask you if you are studying "vakalat" from one of these law schools, and if you tell them that you are from a National that doesnt even remotely feature in these rankings or are placed below colleges like Symbiosis or Amity, they give you a dirty glance without even knowing that to get into one of the Nationals, you need to be good enough to crack an entrance exam which is not so easy, but do I really care about what these people think, NO!! So, please stop fighting over rankings as those who are serious about getting into a law school will be reasonable enough to choose the best for them.
And someone identified National Law Schools with arrogance, dude, are you even aware of the academic rigor at Nationals, people slog hard to get into them and it doesnt end with that, one has to slog hard to survive and the competition is nerve racking, so much so that it makes you confident that you are good enough, if you mistake the confidence for arrogance, then you are certainly mistaken.

I'd need more than just a comment box if I was to start with the achievements.
For that, yes - we do have a prospectus.

But, I don't think I've really mentioned any of NUJS's achievments in that post. If THESE are all that pass off as achievments these days - Oh, Boy! Well there's really nothing to say, is there?

See, that's the problem with trolls like you. I write a 100 lines on an issue in debate. You pick a few of them (how many were there.. 4-5?) which may come across in praise or defence of a law school. And, you just need to cry bloody murder! Schadenfreude. What do you ask me to do? To not post it. Fool.

Thanks for the tip, bro.
But you obviously haven't come across very good prospectuses. Just an FYI - prospectuses aren't sprinkled with opinions. Mostly facts. Least of all, they don't question the credibility of some rankings. Your comment shows your ignorance - you don't know what an opinion reads like & you certianly don't know what a prospectus is!

Perhaps, I should have taken into account the poor comprehension skills of some readers on the site such as yourself. There's a reason why they put (or at least they used to put) comprehension passages in your entrances. If you screw them up, you don't get into your preferred law schools. You don't get in, you go to a lower rung school. You go there, then you hold a grudge against the other schools for the remainder of your student life. And, Voila! You have posts like #83. So when you have these rankings come out, all you want is for the truth to take a back seat and for everyone to accept the 'new' ranking order. And of course.. Shh! Weed out the dissent!

Anyhow, thanks for the read. But, your point was?

"My suggestion is just relax it won't cost you much."

So, I should sit back and relax because it's.. free? Wow! Pursuasive.
Well, I don't know how they're treating you here on LI, but Kian let's me post what I want, when I want, for free. So, No. It didn't cost me anything to post. [Humor me with a better post next time, and I'll let you in on the deal (wink)].

But, don't worry. I fully appreciate where you're coming from. When you're prone to making flawed assumptions & posting such nonsense, your principle must be a golden rule to live by. To just sit back and relax - for no other reason but because it costs nothing. Oh well. Atleast, you wouldn't be caught making an ass of yourself.

Would have loved the 4 cents. Bah, if only they weren't so worthless. Maybe you can pay someone to pull that foot out of your mouth now?

Just read many of the passionate writings about the law school ratings.How ever my comments are intended to be very objective and am not a stakeholder in any of the major law schools about which comments have been made.

In my ratings also NLS is undisputably number 1, they have built in place time tested systems which are not individual centric, prestigious international placements, a great alumni network spreading across the world almost like the IITs or top IIMs (IIM-A, IIM-B, IIM-C) global partnerships with top-notch foreign law schools, decent faculty , decent and functional infrastructure, excellent library and IT systems


NUJS Kolkata comes second because of highly accomplished faculty almost all of them from Oxford, LSE, Cambridge, Harvard, Columbia, Cornell etc, very good placement, excellent location etc. The faculty in NUJS for subjects like jurisprudence, international trade, IPR are all well renowned experts, however the infrastructure is just adequate and can have lot of improvements.


NALSAR Hyderabad is third because of some unfortunate events that happened in the past 2 years or so, the VC who built NALSAR from scratch left the place to join as VC NLU Delhi. Thereafter many of the faculty members who had considerable expertise in fields like IPR, Constitutional law, sociology etc had to leave the place because of various unfortunate developments. Last year "Times of India" had many news reports about the developments at NALSAR and how some of the professors were treated. According to the report the ipr professor who was an expert left the place and joined some private law college in Pune, similarly areas like sociology,Financial law, Tax, constitution have all seen expert faculty leaving. Another important drawback is the regional reservation for students from AP which was introduced recently, the general instability because of the Telengana agitation. NALSAR is just living on its past glory which the former VC and his team built up with great passion. The students who are there would have already realised this. On a postive side, NALSAR has definitely done well in the moots but there also the 100% credit gone to some the very brilliant students they are having and not because of any institutional support. This is really sad because by around 2007-08 NALSAR was rated on par with NLS and in many of the parameters it excelled it. Just like the city of Hyderabad which witnessed lot of unfortunate developments in the past one year, NALSAR is also on a downward journey


Thus my ranking would be

NLS Bangalore
NUJS Kolkata
NALSAR Hyderabad
NLU Jodhpur
NLIU Bhopal
NLU Delhi (GOT A GOOD PROMISING START)
ILS
GNLU
NUALS

while many journals publish law school rankings, few ever take in the choice of students, this can be easily deduced through a simple analysis of the CLAT preference list. An analysis for 2010 is available at theunwillinglawyer.blogspot.com/2010/06/ranking-of-law-schools-based-on-clat.html

can we ever imagine IITs, IIMs, AIIMS, St. Stephen's /St. Xaviers or similar renowned institutions giving flashy adverstisements in a magazine (other than the public notice calling applications) ? they do not need any such publicity

A lot of you guys come across as whiny,self important, juvenile posers. Grow up dude. Atleast in ILS we learn to slug it out, and become men from boys. Maybe the NLU's need a lesson in humility

People in NUJS fail because they find it hard to cope up with the course. The papers are tough. Unlike NLIU where no one fails. Its very easy to pass at NLIU. Students can go to the next trimester even after being debarred from writing all their examinations.

Having been in law school and based on my various interactions with students and faculty therein I would provide the following rankings (Top 10):

1. NLSIU, Bangalore
2. NALSAR, Hyderabad
2. NUJS, Kolkata (Yes I know it's another 2, that's because I consider it equal to NALSAR)
4. NLU, Jodhpur
5. ILS, Pune
6. GLC, Mumbai
7. NLIU, Bhopal
8. GNLU, Gandhinagar
9. HNLU, Raipur
10. Symbiosis, Pune

@95 - I believe that India Today and Outlook have recruitments as one parameter for determining rankings. Therefore, for colleges like Jindal, which have yet to have a graduating batch, a ranking would not be possible.

Well, students from Symbiosis and ILS who have spent two years there come to NUJS and start all over. (This means a student who would be starting his/her third year at ILS/Symbi comes to NUJS and begins with his first year). They do this for a better future. (A little crazy, but they do this).

ILS and Symbi are brilliant institutions...but India Today and Outlook are in a serious need of a reality check when they rank them above NUJS.

The NLU students should be getting together and lobbying for foreign law firms so that there are ample opportunities for all lawyers in India . Instead they are clapping their hands, singing songs and hurling abuses at each other like two rival hijra gangs. Shameful!

I have followed the India Today an Outlook rankings since my days as a law graduate in India. I don't deny that it is about time that these magazines should rethink about the ranking process and come out with a more genuine one's.

In my opinion, the ranking should be as follows :

Overall
1. NLSIU (have the first mover advantage and a strong alumni),
2. Nalsar / Nujs (giving really tough competition to ,
3. NLU Jodhpur (getting stronger and a threat to the above),
4. ILS / NLIU (Average quality of students is not that good, however, has produced some really good students),
5. GLC Bombay,
6. GNLU (catching up really fast),
7. HNLU / Symbiosis / Nuals.

Upcoming:
1. NLU Delhi,
2. Jindal GLS,
3. NLU, Lucknow,
4. NLU, Patiala.

Symbi is definitely better than GNLU. The faculty is much much superior. The GNLU faculty seems very ordinary from the website and most teachers seem to be graduates of obscure universities. Symbi has many legal legends as full-time and part-time lecturers.

Amity Law School is advertising on news channels saying that India Today ranked them in the top 10. This proves that Amity is a very rich college but the fact is that the faculty is of low quality. Most teachers do not have articles in peer reviewed journals. The student quality is also poor. The college is filled with rich spoilt brats from Delhi and Haryana. Yes there are Amity students studing in good colleges abroad but that is only because their teachers inflate grades.

Sorry but Amity does not deserve to be in the top 10.

People are talking about advertisements....well The Economist ranks international business schools and in the same issue the ranked business like Harvard, LBS and Wharton advertise their programs, does this lessen their quality?? Also just because a few students of symbi and ils are re-taking clat does not really mean anything, i graduated from symbi, a few of my batch mates switched colleges and went to the hallowed national law schools but today people like me who slogged in modest symbi and ils are doing much better than them....colleges and tags do not matter few years down the line in the profession...so stop fighting. Some people are ranking colleges like GNLU and NLUD over GLC, ILS and Symbi...well let the alumni find their feet.

...for sure, its the NLIU that deserves 2nd slot for many reasons; it has very stable faculty board and there has never been any exodus of faculty as it happened in most law schools; its one of the indicators that teaching and research by faculty getting sustained here. Secondly, Bhopal as place and the University campus just gives quite good ambiance to academics. Moreover the NLIU was never for ostentatious display like its happening in many institutions that small and mediocre things being snowballed into great achievements.

@ Ed

You refused to publish a post in which someone wrote about how the student body at NUJS had taken the situation in its stride and moved along to better things. How was that an allegation against any individual? That, in fact, represents the sentiments of our student body.

Weeding out comments which don't contribute & needlessly hurt others is fine. But here you went overboard. It's hypocritical - letting many other controversial posts get posted and not the ones on this issue. This is arbitrary censorship.

[As pointed out previously, the first part of the post made allegations against an individual. Please repost phrasing in more general terms. -Ed]

i have read all the comments. i heard that nujs students always try to show their college best and after reading comments i am forced to believe it. according to me nlsiu is the best. nalsar should be ranked second because of its infrastructure and placements. now we have forgot nlu jodhpur which provides best student care among all the national law schools. its placement is also excellent. i think nls and nluj are the only colleges which have claimed 100% placement on legally india itself. nujs has not even claimed of any percentage. nujs doesnt have that level of student care, placement and infrastructure as that of nluj. i think nluj should be placed above nujs. i hope everybody will agree that nluj is the only college which provided full placement data to legally india.
my top 10 ranking would be:
1. NLSIU
2. NALSAR
3. NLUJ
4. NUJS
5. NLIU
6. NLUD
7. GNLU
8. Symbiosis
9. ILS
10. GLC

Erm.

This is what you get when you let misinformed students post anything.

NUJS came out with its placement data. Perhaps you missed the report because it came out with the figures a little before the other schools did.

Wow. over 120 posts & still counting. First you sling mud on NUJS's standing through your comments & then blame others for replying, labeling their comments as "showing off"? Awesome. And, then you turn tables & accuse LI for having a closed mind & being biased!

Rank us wherever you wish. It's been a long time since we really cared. Honestly. If we cared about these rankings, half of us wouldn't be here.

@53: NLU is arrogance? Fine. In that case, NLU students deserve the arrogance. Because they have worked hard to get there and completing the course is an arduous task. This is what usually happens, people work, some get through, others don't. While everybody who's aspiring for law dreams of NLU, those who don't make it later sling mud at those who did.

And please, India Today and Outlook rankings are not to be relied on at all.

@ 125: First few disclosures, I was a student of NUJS and my only experience of symbiosis was while taking part in a competition there (and my cousin studied at symbi business school). Brand wise Symbiosis law would be behind NUJS just because NUJS is a NLU while Symbiosis is not (like the ivy league casteism of US, which unfortunately has permeated in India as well). Infrastructure wise (entertainment and hospitality) Symbiosis would be eons ahead of NUJS (the guest house where symbi people put us up was as par with a 5* accommodation, my first brush with a jacuzzi), however the library facilities of NUJS would be much ahead of Symbiosis (but classrooms are under equipped in NUJS, when i left they still used greenboards and chalks!!!). As for teachers there are few in symbi who have migrated from nlus but if publications and degrees are barometer to judge quality of faculty NUJS would be at the top of the list in India (and quite ahead of Symbi, but pls keep in mind that an ox-cam passouts may not be a good teacher). Thus overall I would suggest that pari passu go for NUJS over symbiosis.

@130: do not ridicule the faculty at JGLS. please see how many publications the people have. and what's wrong if you have a foreign llm? I have met ppl from NALSAR who keep boasting about their college. There are low-profile teachers in many colleges who have far more books and publications than a person as famous as the NALSAR founder Ranbir Singh, but you do not see the students of colleges boasting. Remember...the top 3 law colleges were once Delhi, Bombay and Calcutta University. Today they are not highly regarded. If foreign universities open campuses in India NALSAR/NUJS/NLSIU will meet the same fate.

@127, I completely agree with you. I chose Symbi for true love for the ideology of MNS and Shiv Sena. Though I was not a Marathi Manoos, I got a blood transfusion done to get some Marathi blood into me. Some people were heard whispering that I chose Symbi because the N schools including one in that state of the Big Brother rejected me. That is non-sense. I swear on Uncle Thackeray and the clan and Tiger Head that I chose symbi for my overflowing love for the political climate of Maharashtra and not for anything else. No one should go to NUJS because it is in a commie state. NLS may be ok as the Sri Ram Sena in Karanataka follows broadly the same principles and agendas as that of our beloved Shiv Sena and MNS.

PS: 127 and I are here to provide useful guidance based on true facts to the kids unlike these national kids here who try to garner some attention which their colleges do not get in international moots or debates. Kids, be eternally grateful to the two of us

Having spent 4 years in symbi let me tell you this: Infra sucks. Library has quality, but during mooting season it's war. Wi-Fi we have, which almost everyone else does too. It's highly bureaucratic. Im Maharashtrian and i know that we suck at being professional. But still they will take you for an expensive not-fun-at-all ride. 1st yr tuition fee: 95k. accomodation is limited. foreign students given preference.

Teaching staff consists majorly of Symbi LLM pass-outs. so faculty sucks, but so does everone elses.

The standard seems to have fallen since CLAT. But all said and done symbi people are echleons ahead in getting things done than their NLU counter-parts.

So if you think you can fend for yourself, symbi is the best place to learn and have a rocking time. If you rather be a bookish stay indoorsy and make up for the frustration by incessant smoking up go to the NLUs.

i agree with the last post. Symbi may not have quality professors but who does??? But it teaches you to do everything (from patience to partying like a rock star to building your knowledge in law)on your own...at the end of 5 years you are either wasted or pass out with great achievments. If not anything you will definitely learn what politics is and how to make the best of it. So what if we do not have a campus, or the "national law school" tag, we Rock!!!!

It's not a pointless discussion. CLAT canidates are getting swayed by incorrect rankings and it is important to thrash it out in public interest. NALSAR should be no 1 not NLSIU. NLSIU has really gone down these past few years because of the administration. The NUJS rank seems ok although I would have placed them a few places lower, maybe #8. One college that should not be in the top 10 is NLIU Bhopal. I have met their students and...less said the better. I also heard that there is a lot of moral policing over there and girls are not allowed to wear jeans because of the ABVP!!

Forgot to add: about NLIU Bhopal ...what I said is true. The faculty is quite ordinary but the reason why I advise peopel against it is because the atmosphere in Bhopal is really bad. it's better to go to another city. Don't you see on NDTV and elsewhere what is happening in Bhopal? It is becoming a Hindu taliban city. Guys get beaten up for taking a girl out to a date! If girls wear western clothes they are harassed by the ABVP people. The MP CM order the hoarding of a SPA to be taken down.. yes a SPA!! WTF??? Yes Bhopal may have a better brand value than some colleges but these factors should also influence the decisions of candidates. If you want to spend your college years without having fun AND paying a lote of money for an average then put NLIU as the #1 choice.

A medical college doesn't get recognition from the Med Council if it doesn't have proper hostels. Why do IndiaToday or Outlook overlook this basic necessity while ranking instts ?Symbiosis does not mention a word on hostels either in the prospectus or on their website and declares nonchalantly that there are no hostels just before admission - yet gets ranked high up. Isn't providing adequate facilities to its students a must for an instt which goes out to all corners of the country seeking students ?

@141, 143 : Well done sir, what is your agenda may I know? NALSAR at no. 1 and NUJS at no. 8. You could have placed NLSIU at No. 10? That would have made the joke more complete. (Its ok, you are entitled to your little joke).

GNLU's placement record sucks a big time.
GNLU has placed only 40 out of 160 students which means a horrible 25% recruitment.

now compare this to HNLU's placement record.
39 HNLUites got recruited out of 63 students.ie. 61% recruitment.


meaning thereby is that HNLUites fetches jobs easily.
HNLU recruitment = 61%
GNLU recruitment = 25%

you forgot one simple thing.
apart from recruitment HNLU has got an awesome campus.
HUGE 65 acre campus resembling THE PARLIAMENT OF INDIA.

arguably the BEST CAMPUS among any other NLU of the country.


AND according to TIMES OF INDIA, HNLU is the fourth best law school of the country.

HNLU beter than GNLU??? 65 acre campus??? ROTFLMAO. GNLU is in a city while HNLU is in a villlage and that too in a poor tribal state. Even 100 acres can be given to a college in a jungle-land like Chattisgarh (remember the Rai University scam? hahaha). HNLU has poor faculty, poor placements, poor infrastructure and poor students. And look at the quality and location of the campus and not just the size. Also look at the moot court record. GNLU beats HNLU anyday.

WHAT ?
HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND?

chhattisgarh is among rich states man.
do you have any idea about how much energy is generated in CG?
further more, bhilai steel plant, korba....no dearth og money mate.

and what does location have to do with college??

1. placement record....
well....
HNLU= 61% recruitment (39 out of 63 students placed)
GNLU= 25% recruitment (40 out of 160 students placed despite being in Gujarat)

2. infrastructure ..
are you kidding me?
GNLU does not have any infrstructure....lol ..
have you ever seen the HNLU campus?

3. student quality..
is almost of same level...
but five years down the line HNLUites outshine GNLUites totally....

4. faculty..
GNLU has the worst faculty till date.
HNLU is catching up fast and has got some very good prof, lecturers ..
some even came from NALSAR and NLIU bhopal.


NEED I SAY MORE ?

2. LOCATION: i would anyday prefer to be in healthier environment to
conjusted,polluted city area.
students are there to learn. not to roam around city.
and moreover its a 20 minutes drive to CAPITAL city.



so mate , come up with some new points that favour GNLU.

HNLU vs GNLU is a never-ending debate. it will go on and on for decades.
likewise NLIU vs NUJS.
NLSIU vs NALSAR.

BUT,
i am convinced that both HNLU and GNLU are better colleges than symbiosis, amity and ILS,pune .
that's for sure.
so india today ranking is CRAP. amity and symbi might have offered million bucks.

*no offense to NON-NLUites.

Plz stop dis GNLU v. HNLU thng......... it has gone on for ages nd der is no defintative answer.... wat i can say being an alumni of one of dem is tat both r gud in their respective fields....

regarding placements at GNLU.... i dun knw who has ritten only 40 out of 160 have been placed.... plzz get ur stats correct... over 40 students have been placed in law firms only, plus der were PSUs and many companies visiting the campus. also 160 students did nt sit for the placement. over 25% had other plans and did nt sit for placements. also the placement this time at GNLU has been actually really good with students in all the Tier 1 firms and other medium and small size firms.

I do not knw abt the HNLU placements, bt m sure it wld have been good. I have met sum of the HNLU alumni from the first and second batch and trust me they are really good. i do not knw abt the further batches.

and guyz nw plz stop dis crap of HNLU better or GNLU better. nd more importatntly plz stop arguing on unknown facts.

@158 and 162:

1) HNLU building is the second parliament of our nation?? joke of the century!!! the only thing the HNLU building has in common with our parliament is that the ppl inside both the buildings [...] talk nonsense...and what what do you mean u would rather live in a "healthy" area?? you are just jealous that yr college is not in a city. if you really want to live in a healthy area go live with the maoists in the jungles of dantewada, it's not too far from your college anyway

2) as for chattisgarh being a "rich" state, if counting coal mines is your method of assessment then jharkhand is india's richest state. pls do a reality check: gujarat
is 1000000 times more developed than chattisgarh.

3) and pls stop boasting about your so-called big campus. it's in a village for god's sake! property prices are obviously cheaper.

4)pls compare the GNLU moot court record with your and the quality of faculty

Its sad to write considering the cat fight going on. I feel many of you did not go through the magazines. The Rankings derived by the magazines, clearly states that FACULTY WAS NOT TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT and some NATIONAL LAW SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES DID NOT PARTICIPATE in it.

The debate can never end on such delicate issues. Everyone has a point to clarify in order to prove that their college stand superior when compared to the other. Please don't take others view as a critique, this is a natural tendency which we humans have and should be perceived in a good sense. Rather make a supporting argument to clarify the critique so that the scores are well settled and the critique is made to shut up!

Now coming to these new National Law Universities established in Delhi, Patiala, Lucknow, Kochi,Patna ; they are not in the rankings because these people are yet to be tested as their first batch is yet to pass out. Their worth cannot be assessed as of now. Yeah but all NLU's be it in Delhi , Patiala or Lucknow they are being refined and are shaping well as they too are on the platform of adopting similar pattern and are running on the footprints of NLS and NALSAR. So no doubt regarding the talent they possess. Moreover its not confirmed whether they did participate?

Not an iota of doubt that the setting up of National Law Schools have certainly raised the standards of legal education in the country. NLS Bangalore and Nalsar have maintained their status and are considered the pioneer institute for imparting legal education in the country. All credit to them for maintaining & sustaining the two top positions.

But people from Symbi and ILS and other colleges who are faring well need to be given their due irrespective of the fact how much they party or are into politics. They have lived up to their college's reputation as far as placement goes. These things should not wary you people until and unless you are performing well in the markets. You should be unperturbed by such remarks.

And just a piece of advice to my fellow and budding lawyers; follow the doctrine of harmonious construction among your fellow mates.
Come on yaar, do compete but not to outrage the other.

Take care!

@198 & 199: Which NLUS did your son get admitted to? If it's one of the Big 3 (NLSIU, NALSAR, NUJS) then it's better than studying engineering. NLU Jodhpur and GNLU are also good. NLIU Bhopal is fast deteriorating so it's a 50-50 choice if your son got in there. However if your son has got into HNLU I would strongly advise against putting him there. The faculty is not good. also as you can see from the messages on these boards, HNLU students are all tapori types. And raipur does not have an airport so transport is a problem.

yes its very much true....one of the students got 15.5 and d others who were placed in amarchand received 14 lacks... i verified it from the placement committee head... however you have to keep one thing in mind...that placements have a lot to do with the individual caliber ...colleges brand name does play a role but is limited .....so even though the highest pay packages mite not show much of disparity...d average as compared to nls and nalsar is definitely low... bt gnlu's growth is undoubtedly phenomenal ....it took nls banglore almost 25 yrz to reach where it is today... and with the introduction of CLAT...d quality of intake in atleast the top 7 nlu's is by and large the same... coz of the exams poor standard... it brings down the best and the average in the same level... bt nls banglore is a different league... a dream university in this country ...the pride of the nation.... its a symbol of excellence... and remains unmatched...

all ranking of India today are totally non sense and deserve nothing . all ranking are based on taking money from colleges not on any academic criteria.
on my basis the ranking would be -
1 Nlsiu banglore
2 Nalsar hyderabad
3 Nliu bhopal
4 Campus law centre du
5 Ils law college pune
6 Nujs kolkata
7 Nlu jodhpur
8 Symbiosis law college pune
9 Glc mumbai
10 Rmnlu Lucknow

I think it is better for us to leave this matter as usual.its make no difference.we all know about the reality.bcoz 'koi apne dahi ko khatta nahi kahta'.no one can judge or there is no such parmeter through which we can evaluate the priority of nluo.its all about based on the establishment of nlu.every thing is based upon the quality of the student.standard and merit of the facalty.if there is a simple law colleges and students are meritorious as well as facaulty on that situation student of that college may be more productive than 'nlsiu'.exposure is not a big criteria. its makes not so much difference. for example how many leading judge of india is a product of nlu? so dont deviate the law students by meaningless argument.all students are smart in her
job.all colleges are good .think about how the nlu student give there best in indian legal education and make no.1 legal education or system in the world .

I like the fact that nobody from NLSIU has (or has even felt the need to) participate in this discussion. The fact that some things go unsaid is great! Proud of my Alma Mater, regardless of where its headed these days...

Now pounce... if anyone has the energy left...

People, i am not a law student, so i have no idea about rankings...
i've been to HNLU and beleve me.. the campus is AWESOME..!!
and by the way, the campus is not very far away from Raipur Airport.
Also, HNLU is not located in a village, infact it is in the midst of 'New Raipur' currently in developing stage.. New Raipur is to be developed in the lines of Navi Mumbai and it might even end up being one of the best cities to live/work in.. (see Business today, if you dont beleve me)..

Kindly donot compare hnlu with gnlu....i have interned with gnlu students and being a mediocore student i could figure out that the toppers could not even search case laws and notifications..this is the quality in gnlu..infrastructure and student wise HNLU is far beetr than GNLU...placemnts..in last three batches many are in amrachand all the toppers in AZB....big mncs like vedanta and jindal...other top firms like talwar thakore...banks like icici..the placements are diverse...and preety good as compared to GNLU..and gnlu students you know where you stand..so stp boasting about yourself..being in same profession we know where your collge stands.dont compare yourself with NLS AND ALL..Getting four five placements in a law firm does not make you superior in any kind..

@217: Dude, do a spell check before submitting any posts in the forum. Then compare your college with GNLU.

GNLU is much much better than HNLU in all respects: mooting, student quality, faculty quality etc

HNLU is in a bad city like raipur and that too on the outskirts.

@218 leaving aside the spell check part atleast you got my message..try to build your college culture rather than checking my spelling mistakes...and comparing ourselves with GNLU will obviously demean our collge reputation..thanks for your suggestion..and you are right gnlu cant b compared with any collge..lol

those of you who are ecstatic at the outlook survey please read this::
the outlook survey also conducted surveys for other colleges. this is how flawed they were

Firstly, the people who have conducted the survey donot know what social work is.

The institutions ranked 4th , 6th, and 10th are not offering any course on social work at all. Course on human resourcemanagement, rural management and sociology are not social work. Social work is a distinct profession.

Second thing is that the methodology followed is not scientific.

Third important thing is that the institution ranked 13th does not exist in Chennai.The one that exists in Annamalai Nagar is a Sociology Department. It offers social work for a few years. I know the institute and the people there. It is astonishing to know such institution is better than Loyola college of social sciences which is well known in the south.
