The NIRF law college or university rankings for 2018 are out! The Nationwide Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) was accredited by the MHRD on 29th September 2015.
The law college or university rankings, unveiled on April 3, 2018 have been curated for the very first time.
While the entire initiative around ranking colleges by the federal government all over fixed parameters requires to be applauded at the similar time, like most rankings, the entire training is fraught with blunders that make the rankings woefully incomplete. (See our verdict on the India Right now 2017 rankings right here).
But very first-up, the NIRF rankings of law colleges for 2018:
- NLSIU Bangalore
- NLU Delhi
- NALSAR Hyderabad
- IIT Kharagpur
- NLU Jodhpur
- Jamia Millia Islamia Delhi
- NUJS Kolkata
- RMLNLU Lucknow
- Symbiosis Legislation University Pune
- DR. BR Ambedkar College or university of Legislation Vishakhapatnam
Here’s how you can use these rankings: All the previously mentioned-talked about colleges are ‘very good’ and safe and sound-bets.
The rankings also reaffirm NLSIU’s numero uno place in the pecking purchase and NLU Delhi’s swift increase in the circuit.
Nevertheless, these are not the law university rankings any individual in the know of authorized instruction would concur with. Why?
We don’t want to go into an examination of the parameters applied or even the specifics of the rankings, but we’ll give just a single explanation, which we’ll hope will be a cincher.
Only 71 colleges (out of just about 1300+ law colleges in the country) participated in these rankings. The entire record in alphabetic purchase is right here.
NLIU Bhopal did not participate in the rankings and neither did GNLU.
Verdict: Practical initiative but don’t trust it term for term, rank for rank.
