Top 20 Law Universities in India Accepting CLAT, LSAT, SLAT Scores

To get admissions into law colleges and universities in India, the marks of law entrance exams such as CLAT, LSAT, and SLAT are usually considered. Some universities also conduct college-level entrance tests but in most cases, the universities which conduct their own tests exempt those students from entrance tests who have a valid score in any CLAT, LSAT or SLAT examinations.

NIRF or National Institute Ranking Framework released the list of 15 top law colleges in India in which admissions are possible after cracking these examinations. There are numerous law universities that accept the CLAT, LSAT and SLAT scores for shortlisting deserving candidates. CollegeDekho brings to you the list of such colleges, institutes, and universities as well which are considered the best institutes to study law.

Determinants To Be Kept In Mind While Selecting A Law College

A lot of factors are to be considered when selecting a law college, some of the determinants are mentioned below. It is important to be aware of such determinants to avoid later hassles.

  • Candidates may download the brochure of each college and check out all the details of the college which will help them to find out the services offered by them as well as the merits of choosing that college.
  • Each of the available law colleges has its own cutoff which the candidate must have completed before moving to further steps.
  • Applicants should check the college's date of accreditation and establishment.
  • Students must have a knowledge of the college rankings. It's always better to check the latest edition of NIRF Rankings and NAAC Grade. 
  • Candidates should select the law college after checking the placement history of past seasons, facilities provided and other important details.
  • Students should also be aware of the faculty, the teachers, and their achievements to understand the teaching quality of the college and should also note that the college pedagogy is updated.
  • Candidates must check out the fee structure prepared by each of the colleges and then finalise the college falling under their budget.
  • Candidates must also have an idea of the curriculum and pedagogy followed in law school.
  • Applicants may compare two colleges to find out the better one between them.
  • Last but not least is the infrastructure, which is also a very important factor.
