India Today law school rankings 2016 are out blablabla, LOL, why no one should care, etc

Look, these magazines need to make money and these things are basically filler copy stuffed with ads, so why bother outraging?

The India Today magazine has published its annual ad-supported college rankings supplement again, which also ranks law schools, and as we have written several times, other than the fact that a lot of parents make their choices based on that list, no one should really care.

We're getting bored even writing about this, particularly since we vowed four years ago to reduce coverage and importance given to the India Today and Outlook law school rankings, but the sad and honest fact is that this is super easy copy to write and will result in thousands of law aspirant hits from Google so we'll unashamedly post it anyway and hope that some of them may get a new perspective on the rankings and become delighted new LI readers.

So there, now you know.

For what it's worth, the somewhat random selection of colleges, in order of ranking (and available here without having to click through 25 pages), are: NLSIU Bangalore, Campus Law Centre Delhi University, Nalsar Hyderabad, GNLU Gandhinagar, Symbiosis Pune, Faculty of Law Aligarh Muslim University, Christ College of Law, ILS Pune, BVP Pune, GGSIP University, Amity Delhi, HNLU Raipur, Banaras Hindu University, Army Institute of Law Mohali, Faculty of Law Jamia Millia Islamia, ICFAI Law School Dehradun, KLE Bangalore, GLC Mumbai, Kurukshetra University, MS Ramaiah College of Law, ULC Bangalore, BILS Bangalore, South Calcutta Law College, Siddharth College of Law Mumbai, Dr Ambedkar College of Law Mumbai.

Missing are obviously NUJS Kolkata (which has boycotted the rankings since 2011), NLIU Bhopal and NLU Jodhpur, NLU Delhi and nearly every other national law school, and ... and why were we still writing about this?

Anyway, if you're here for a law school ranking, we're currently publishing a gentle series of 'choose your law school sessions', including some of the things you should be looking out for in a law school. Our list is not complete, it's not comprehensive, and is not perfect, but at least it's not based on thin air. Read the first in the series on recruitments here. More to follow shortly.
