Careers360 has ranked top law colleges in India based on various parameters. In this special series of Law Colleges Ranking 2015, Careers360 brings you a list of law colleges ranked on the basis of living and learning. The advent of National Law School phenomenon has drastically changed the way law as a profession is perceived. What was once a less-preferred option has caught the imagination of the young, thanks to the NLS phenomenon.


With over 30,000 aspirants, law has picked up steam. But nearly 70% of Law Schools in the country still offer 3-year LLB instead of the five-year integrated BA LLB or other variants of the same.

Living & Learning

The top Law Schools have surged ahead not just because of their teaching but because of the overall atmosphere they offer to both students and faculty members, thus making living (teaching/learning) in the campus an enriching experience. According to the President of India, Pranab Mukherjee, good institutions must encourage their students to not merely learn the content of law but to also assess their rationale, the consequences of implementation and constructive suggestions for their reform; it is the best institutes represented here, that are possibly putting their step towards standardization and in ensuring quality education. Private schools such as JGLS and Symbiosis too have entered into collaborations, exchange programmes, research partnerships and other forms of engagement with top universities across the globe to share their intellectual resources. Moot courts, a key activity of good performance in a Law School has been factored in, along with other important activities integrated in the curricula. Those that offer IT-enabled services and learning resources such as standard text books, journals, choice of electives, electronic resources and host of research instruments have also been considered.
