NUJS>GLC>Symbi>NLS in law firm partnershipsNUJS>GLC>Symbi>NLS in law firm partnershipsIn a ranking of Indian law firms’ favourite law school from which to internally promote partners, in the 2015-16 financial year NUJS Kolkata outdid NLSIU Bangalore’s performance.

According to Legally India’s reporting of internal partnership promotions effective this financial year (since 15 June 2015), 92 salaried partners from 27 law schools were promoted across 30 Indian and foreign law firms.

NUJS alumni made up for the highest number of partners promoted across various law firms this year, followed by Symbiosis Pune, GLC Mumbai and NLSIU.

This analysis excludes equity partners made up during the same period in all firms where the salaried partner designation exists. But it includes equity partners made up in firms where there is no salaried partner designation. It also includes associate partner promotions in all firms for which we reported such promotions.

NB: Our list is not comprehensive and there might be errors (full source data at the bottom of this article). If you know any of the alma mater of the last few on the list, please do share in comments and we’ll update.

NB 2: An older version of this story incorrectly stated that Symbiosis Pune led the rankings this year and NLSIU, GLC and NUJS were tied up for the second spot. After adding several missed out entries for which we did not have data earlier, our sample size increased from 75 to 92 and then finally to 98 partners. We also deleted certain equity partners incorrectly added to the sample. Error is regretted.

NUJS Kolkata (founded in 1999) accounted for 13 per cent of the pie this year, rising seven ranks since Legally India’s 2013 analysis of promotions over four years at the six largest law firms. NUJS alumni were made partners at Argus, AZB, CAM, HSA Advocates, Talwar Thakore & Associates, Trilegal and Wadia Ghandy. GLC Mumbai, with partners made at ALMT Legal, AZB, DSK, JSA, Khaitan, Little & Co was at 12 per cent/

Symbiosis Pune (founded in 1977) accounted for 11 per cent, compared to only 5 per cent in 2013  across the six largest Indian law firms. Symbiosis alumni were made partners at Argus Partners, AZB & Partners, DSK Legal, Economic Laws Practice (ELP), J Sagar Associates (JSA), Kanth & Associates, Khaitan & Co, Rajani Singhania & Partners, Trilegal and Wadia Ghandy. Symbiosis also had the most number of the ‘Big Seven’ Indian firms in its alumni-partner net.

NLSIU Bangalore (founded in 1987) – the leader of the 2013 rankings – was the last law school to have a double digit percentage in these rankings. Although, in terms of variety, NLSIU covered the widest net of law firms because it had the only alumni promoted in foreign law firms as well. NUJS and GLC were each spread out across six law firms.

Law firms which promoted alumni from NLSIU: Argus, Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas (CAM), S&R Associates, Samvad Partners, Trilegal, Wadia Ghandy and foreign law firms Nixon Peabody, Kirkland & Ellis and Jones Day.

ILS Pune slipped a rank below its 2013 rank and at number five this year it constituted 8 per cent of the total internal promotions. ARA Law, AZB, DSK, JSA, Khaitan and Trilegal were the ones to promote its alumni.

The takeover from Delhi University

In 2013, Delhi University provided a whopping 17%of all new partners at India’s six largest firms (see graphic below from this story).

2009-2013 partnerships at India's six largest law firms2009-2013 partnerships at India's six largest law firms

Delhi University followed ILS this year with 7 per cent, its alumni made up at Advaita Legal, Dua Associates, HSA, Khaitan, DMD, DSK and JSA.

NLU Jodhpur and  Nalsar Hyderabad were tied up at 5 per cent and NLIU Bhopal, Amity Delhi and RA Shah Law College were tied together at 3 per cent.

These were the law schools in the top 11.

Nuals Kochi with one promotion was the only other national law university to have made it into the rankings.

JSA’s 14 salaried partner promotions this year were the highest among all reported law firms. It promoted equally from Symbiosis, ILS, GLC and Amity but did not promote from NLSIU. NLIU was the only NLU which it promoted from. DSK Legal and Trilegal (8 each) and Khaitan (7) were the other heavy hitters. DSK also did not promote from NLS but it did promote from Symbiosis, and Trilegal – which was co-founded by NLS alumni – promoted one alumni from NLS.

How much do these numbers matter? Although I applaud your efforts, there are some issues that must be highlighted.

There are 80 students per batch in NLS, 120ish in NUJS, 240 in GLC and 400-500 (if not more) at Symbi, Pune per year. Won't Symbi Pune which, is possibly the largest law school (don't know about JGLS) have more chances than a law school which produces 1/5th the number of graduates? Would it be fair to rank law schools in this regard by such a computation?

How many of them are going to law firms? What is the composition of these law firms?

In the brief time I spent at NLIU, the seniors in the 'positive interaction session' told newly admitted kids about how they're the 3rd best law school in the country because they disagreed with the preference list of most kids(yes, they were jobless enough to ask that). Their logic was that NLIU is only second to NLS when it comes to partner designates from the NLUs. Hope this serves as a wake up call for them and ends their delusions of grandeur.

Even NLUJ, a college which they try so hard to belittle, is ahead of them now, if partner designations really matter

Kian, I hope you'll publish this. Those kids need to realise what the situation really is like.

Actually, no. Kian seemed to have looked over one big lot of Khaitan designations. NLIU has 1 guy in that. 1.
So, even if that is taken into account, you still remain where you are in terms of the National Laws because Jodhpur also has 1 designation in that.
You just make it above Amity but I'm sure you're really glad that, that happened.

This all based on the assumption that partner designations even matter while determining a National Law and it's position.

Bhopal was one of the best but then somewhere along the line it started fucking up. Bhopal still is a good institution, relatively. You can make it great again if you guys get your shit together as opposed to roaming around with bottles of beer on the campus roads.

That's weird. I know for sure, fiscal 2016 was the first year of partnership for all of these guys. Firms may announce partnership promotions in February/ March/ April or June, but mostly they are all with effect from April 1. So if this is a round of promotions for fiscal 2016, they should all have been counted as new partners for fiscal 2016. Counting them based on the dates of reporting (some through confirmations and some through 'strong sources') is not the right thing to do.

Anyway, your method of calculation seems skewed and that's telling me not to bother about this story anymore. Not a great work, I must say.

Not sure how true this is. From NALSAR, the following lawyers were made partners in the last year:

3. Nanditha Gopal in AZB
4. Mayank Singh in Khaitan
5. Kumar Visalaksh in ELP

That's 5 compared to the number (3) given in this list. Also the period of survey may be a bit weird. Most of the firms make the partnership w.e.f. April 1. Is that why the number is different?

Given how omnipresent the national law schools have become in recent years (indeed, there now appears to be one in every state), and the placement and cachet they have managed, law schools in universities like Delhi, would stand to disadvantage. In that most able or serious candidates would go to these new law schools.

Situation could be reversed if these older law schools within universities (like CLC, GLC), get their act together. But that is a remote possibility -- neither is there a will nor an inclination.

No need to worry in terms of the intellect and drive of your peers. The most serious concern is the administration. the director is very authoritative.Refuses to engage in any discourse that isnt along her line of thought. This is not to say that there isnt good faculty and admin officers. But just take a look at the countless number of qualified and capable faculty that have left on account of disagreements with the director. Ive heard wonderful things about the director of sls,noida though

what fantastic and time-taking analysis. anything counter-intuitive (with pies!) and relevant is a great read.
i know legal news websites that would charge for this business intelligence.

Why not do a study of batches 2004-2006 from top law schools who are partners in various national level law firms irrespective of whether they are promoted internally or laterally acquired?

The great thing about NUJS is that it's a student lead college.

The biggest conference, the biggest moot, national level fests and the entire rigmarole of placements is managed by the students. Multiple committees and societies, some of which do excellent work, are lead entirely by students.

And this is a no mean feat.

In college, I conducted a tiny conference which was attended by 15 participants, and trust me, the whole process is as worthwhile as a mini MBA.

I think it's this quality which makes NUJS graduates go-getters; ones not just have a sound grounding in law but also an 'in the trenches' knowledge of leadership, management and getting things done.

No wonder that NUJS leads in law firm partnership promotions 2015-16.

Kian, what's the break up of law firms where the managing or senior partners are from the national law schools. NLS will surely rule in this category - Indus, Trilegal etc. Can hardly think of any law firm where the managing or senior partners are from any of the other national law schools.

W/o taking anything away from the excellence of NLSIU, that's partly because the institution has had such a head start over the others in terms of time. If you consider, say, NUJS, the first batch graduated in 2005. Ten years are hardly enough for anyone to become senior partners in a top tier firm. Unless you count starting your own firm, in which case other NLU-grads have done thus.
