How to Choose a Law College
HERE ARE SOME guidelines on how to go about choosing a law school.
The Top law schools in India are:
1. The national Law School of India University, Bangalore (NLSIU)
2. The national Academy of Legal Studies and Research, Hyderabad (NALSAR)
3. The West Bengal National University of Juridical Sciences, Kolkata (NUJS)
4. The National Law University, Delhi (NLU Delhi)
5. The Campus Law Centre, Delhi University, Delhi
6. The National Law Institute University, Bhopal (NLIU)
7. The National Law University, Jodhpur (NLU Jodhpur)
8. The Gujarat National Law University, Gandhinagar (GNLU).
The institutes listed above are the top eight law schools in the country. The Government Law College, Mumbai (GLC) and the Indian Law Society’s Law College, Pune (ILS Pune) are old and renowned institutions, but are struggling to keep pace. The Hidayatullah National Law University, Raipur (HNLU), the Symbiosis Law School, Pune and the Amity Law School, Delhi, are also among the best law schools in the country. In case you are getting an admission into any of these colleges you can be assured of a quality legal education.
Do Not Go by the India Today or Outlook Magazine’s Rankings. India Today and Outlook are respected, popular weekly magazines. However, they are not in touch with the stakeholders of legal education, be it the students, the teachers or the recruiters. You can use the rankings issued by them as a good reference point to arrive at a shortlist of law colleges, but nothing more. To do your own research, check out websites like ‘Legally India’ and ‘Bar and Bench’ for recruitment-related statistics. Also check the website of each college for accurate details about the faculty, infrastructure, etc.
Your best bet to know the true picture of a law school will be to talk to a couple of students personally.
Caveat: Some law students will try to sell their college. Beware!
Ignore the X versus Y Debate. There are many law aspirants who fight tooth, nail and claws arguing if ‘X’ Law College is better than ‘Y’ law college. Such discussions are a waste of time. There is nothing that you can get at NLSIU Bangalore, the first preference of many, which you cannot get, say at, NLU Jodhpur, generally the fourth or the fifth preference. There are countless examples of students from low-ranked law colleges, who worked hard and are doing well in their careers. Similarly, there are graduates from colleges like NLSIU, NALSAR and NUJS who did not do much through their five years of law school and are struggling to even make a living. Of course, graduating from a top law school acts as a great launch pad, but you have to then use that launch pad. And yes, even those from an unheard-of law school can create one for themselves.
All NLUs are Not Good. Unfortunately, most of the newly opened national Law Universities are struggling to get even 50 percent placements for their students. While placements should not be the only yardstick to measure the quality of a law school but,it does portray a part of the reality objectively. Most of these NLUs lack good quality faculty too. Unfortunately again, for these new NLUs, the situation has not improved in the last five years.
Choosing a Law College Near Your Home. If you do not get admission in any of your short-listed law colleges, you may well want to study law from a local law college. This has two benefits. Firstly, with low fee structure and no hostel and mess fees, you can spend money on additional activities in Delhi or Mumbai. With Supreme Court, a High Court and multiple tribunals, Delhi is the nerve-centre of lawyers in India. Studying at a law college in Delhi will help you attend many related conferences and workshops, build contacts, and even intern throughout the year. The scenario in Mumbai, the hub for Indian law firms, is similar. Ask any GLC, Mumbai student how he/she benefits from living in Mumbai!
