NLSIU_Bangalore_library_thumbAnother week, another law school ranking: national daily Mint has ranked the large national law colleges in the top five positions, in its India's best colleges supplement it published today.

Mint has placed National Law School of India University (NLSIU), Bangalore in first, closely followed by Nalsar University of Law, Hyderabad and National University of Juridicial Sciences, Kolkata (NUJS).

The schools in the top three positions were unchanged since last year, and achieved 637, 627 and 619 points respectively in the rankings.

The runners up in fourth and fifth were National Law University, Jodhpur and National Law Institute University, Bhopal, which swapped places from their positions last year.

Mint's methodology used a combination of the rankings used by India Today magazine and Outlook magazine last week. Mint contacted faculty members and legal professionals with a questionnaire, asking them to rate each of intellectual capital, pedagogic systems and processes, placements, and "infrastructure and support systems".

Each category was weighted with intellectual capital being allocated 250 points down to infrastructure and support systems, which was worth 150 points.

The paper did not publish the sample size used.

Faculty of Law Delhi University came sixth; Government Law College, Mumbai jumped up the rankings to seventh; ILS Law College, Pune was unchanged at eight; Amity Law School, Delhi made it into the top ten for the first time at nine; and Symbiosis Law School, Pune closed the list at ten.
