Tierwise Ranking

Choosing a Law School

How does one decide which law school to apply to? Is it the academic standards or the performance in moot court competitions? Is it the reputation of the law school in the industry or the reputation amongst other law schools? Rankings are always harbingers of controversy. Rankings released by different sources often conflict resulting in a fair bit of confusion, to say the least.

Here are the most important ingredients to decide which law school to pick:

   a. Industry Reputation
   b. Reputation amongst Foreign Law Schools
   c. Peer Reputation
   d. Academic Standards / Quality of Faculty
   e. Recruitment Statistics
   f. Location
   g. Student Community / Campus Life
   h. Hostel Quality
   i. IT Infrastructure / Library
   j. Quality of Entrance Process
