Editor’s note: LI is reducing law school rankings coverage

Previous years’ coverage of various national magazines’ law school rankings has turned into a bit of a media circus and has not really contributed in any way to improving the quality or transparency of Indian legal education.

The magazines’ law school rankings have been often criticised and little understood, while colleges’ rank often varied widely and seemingly randomly from year to year. Please feel free to read previous stories, drama and hundreds of comments on this topic.

Legally India has therefore taken an editorial decision not to analyse, publicise or give major editorial space to such magazines’ rankings.

But to maintain a public record, we will continue to publish links to the rankings in the Legally Wired section or elsewhere on the site: please find this year’s India Today law school rankings below, for example.

If you would like to have a look at some slightly more objective criteria of judging college quality in very, very broad terms, please have a look at:

Ultimately, however, all rankings are subjective and to a great extent artificial. Preferably, do your own research by speaking to current and past students, visit the campus if you can, speak to some professors and recruiters, and come up with your own considered opinion.
