CLAT 2014 preferences: NLU Jodhpur catches up to NLIU as NUJS nabs 3 'from' NLS

The margin between NLU Jodhpur and NLIU Bhopal is negligible this year, according to an analysis of the preferences of candidates taking the 2014 Common Law Admissions Test (CLAT), while NUJS Kolkata has narrowed the gap slightly towards Nalsar Hyderabad in second place.

As in previous years, Legally India has compiled a “Super 30 Score” by averaging the all India CLAT rank of the 30 highest scoring candidates admitted to each university.

There has been no change in the Super 30 rankings of the top eight-preferred national law schools – NLSIU Bangalore, Nalsar, NUJS, NLIU, NLU Jodhpur, GNLU Gandhinagar, HNLU Raipur and RMLNLU Lucknow.

However, although NLIU Bhopal is still in fourth place in the CLAT preferences, Bhopal’s Super 30 was only 4.2 ranks ahead of Jodhpur this year, compared to a lead of 47 ranks last year.

Three potential NLSites ‘defect’ to NUJS

NLSIU Bangalore still scored 55 out of the top 60 CLAT scorers this year, however, this year the sixth and seventh rankers opted for NUJS. Rank 31 and 37 went to Nalsar Hyderabad, meanwhile, as rank 47 also opted for NUJS.

However, between rank 61 and 103, all candidates opted for Nalsar with the exception of the 67th and 102nd rank who went for NLU Jodhpur and NLIU Bhopal respectively.

From rank 104 NUJS dominates the preference rankings, with NLIU Bhopal and NLU Jodhpur beginning to make more regular appearances.

The rankings are illustrated in the charts below, which plot the all India CLAT rank of everyone admitted to each law college against each other. A lower line in the chart signifies that CLAT takers have preferred the college over another in their choice.

Younger NLU’s incoming CLAT ranks

Amongst the younger schools, RGNUL Patiala climbed two Super 30 ranks ahead of Nuals Kochi and CNLU Patna.

Nuals stayed in the same position but CNLU fell three places to twelth in the table.

NLU Orissa climbed one rank, while the newest national law schools NUSRL Ranchi and NLUJA Assam traded places at the bottom of the rankings.
