I had to go through all these doubts when my daughter opted for law 2 years back. On Merit she qualified at ILS and GLC both. In CLAT 2009 she managed upto Patiala and in 2010 Raipur. Difficult decisions had to be made and she finally opted for ILS. In 2009 it was ranked higher than now. Would have take up NLS if she had made it atleast in Bhopal or Jodhpur.

Yes I can understand what you went through, and that too only because I am going through the same grind!

While a school with a huge fan following is an ideal solution to the problem it is not necessarily the most optimum solution.To cite an instance one of my nieces has qualified from Amity Law School under the auspices of IP university and is now with a highly reputed senior counsel at the Supreme Court. If she succeeds very soon she will be in the judicial service.

The only apprehensions/misgivings I had were due to the fact while the management is the same, the fact remains that Amity Law School under Amity Univ is a newer entity. However with 3 batches of graduates under their belt , a good number of who are doing good work, this is a gamble I am going to take subject to my daughter agreeing.

I do not see any substantial incremental benefit chasing a law school in the NLS system by repeating CLAT as it is not of great importance to us that she starts with a job in a star law firm or an appointment as a legal officer in some large corporation. I would rather she cuts her teeth in a law practice where she is exposed to the every day nitty gritty of legal work and chooses her direction ( litigation/ consultation ) from there.

Would she? Let her have the freedom. Being from one these law schools I would suggest, changing law schools if she gets through next year to NLS is not a bad idea. Lot of people in my batch for example had done 1 year of law from some other college, and never ever regretted changing when they got the option the next year. She will have more freedom to choose her direction then.

My daughter is studying law and we went through this. I really would not consider these.

Consider St Josephs - just started last year but strong alumni and non money making intention of college will ensure this college will rise in 5 years.

Christ is good but classes started in May. Jindal is very good but expensive and you need to have written and exam.

I am a graduate of NLSIU Bangalore and a partner in one of the leading full service law firms in Bangalore. From my experience, one of the ways in which we, the members of the professions, gauge the quality of a law school is by observing how interns from that law school perform when interning with us. From that perspective, I have noticed that (other than the law schools modelled after the NLSIU model) the students from Christ college of law are doing quite well, and are generally hardworking and intelligent. There are of course several other colleges in Bangalore which are doing well in imparting legal education to students.

Not sure about Joseph's because we have not had too many interns from there and have not personally interacted with students from there. Obviously because its a very new law school, and therefore, interns from there are not yet working with law firms.

I fully agree with you! It is too early to make a judgement but I somehow do not trust some of the private for profit enterprises!

University Law College (ULC), Bangalore Institute of Legal Studies (BILS), Christ College of Law- these are some of the better law colleges in Bangalore, from my experience of dealing with law students and interns. Another law college which has done decently in recent times is MS Ramaiah College of Law. Do bear in mind that my views are based almost entirely on my personal interactions with students from these colleges.

Other than that, there are many good law schools outside Bangalore as well across the country- though I think most of them have streamlined their admission process to under the CLAT now.
