India Today has released a great work of fiction. It’s called India Today’s Law College Rankings 2016.

Here’s what India Today has got right: NLSIU Bangalore as rank 1.

Here’s what India Today has got wrong: Nearly everything else.

NUJS Kolkata, NLIU Bhopal and NLU Jodhpur do not find a mention in the top 20 law schools of India. They’ve been included in the ’emerging colleges’ list in India Today’s annual tamasha.

Here’s the verdict: Coin tosses will give you a closer picture of law school rankings in India than India Today’s rankings.

However, here’s one way you can use the rankings: If you find a place in any of the 20 colleges mentioned, it means you are going to a decent college.

Do not waste USD 1 on this issue of India Today! Below are the 2016 rankings as provided by India Today. You may end reading here.

Note: Most of the text written above has been copy pasted from what we published about the 2015 rankings here. Bad habits never change.
