India Today law college rankings: Even more irrelevant as NLIU, NLU-J drop out post NUJS boycott

The annual India Today magazine law school rankings have seen NLIU Bhopal, NLU Jodhpur and RGNUL Patiala disappear out of the magazine’s top 20 rankings, after NUJS Kolkata threatened the magazine with a press council complaint in 2010 and withdrew its participation by refusing to share details about it with the magazine.

This means that neither of the traditionally third, fourth nor fifth-most preferred national law schools are now represented in the rankings.

The last two years, NLIU Bhopal was in fifth place and NLU Jodhpur was in 10th and eighth place respectively.

NLSIU Bangalore and Nalsar Hyderabad have held the first two spots for the last several years, followed by Delhi University’s law faculty in third, which is currently facing a Bar Council of India (BCI) probe and disaffiliation.

According to India Today, GNLU Gandhinagar was ranked fourth, followed by Symbiosis Pune, Aligarh Muslim University and ILS Law College Pune, while HNLU Raipur made its first entry into the table in ninth, and Nuals Kochi entered in 18th place.

Legally India had announced its reduction in coverage of magazine rankings of law schools in 2012.
