Good remarks have already been written above. Bad remarks include lack of sanitation and excessive vandalism. Management has shut its eyes and ears because the main reason for this is the behavior of students.
Entrace is conducted by Law Faculty, Delhi University every year in May/June. I chose this course over M.A. Economics because LL.B. is a professional course and was preferred over an academic course. The admission process is called counseling in which students are given admission on the basis of their rank.
The course structure is best in the country as most of the other institutes follow our curriculum. We are given case materials which is a detailed tabulation of landmark cases. Moreover, we have to read the bare acts and reference books for theory. Electives are chosen from the beginning of the 2nd year. You can either choose civil, criminal or other subjects of law, depending on preference.
The college does not provide any internship as there is no internship cell in our college. Students apply or go through reference for internships which are mostly unpaid.
The placement cell is not very active. Around 10% of the students get placed. Plus, not many companies come to college and provide employment. Packages offered to those 10% students are average. Students get employment by going for walk-in interviews.
There is no management festival in our college. But it is flooded with cultural festivals round the year and most of them are sponsored by big players in the market. Almost all of the students participate in these events. Technical fests include moot court competitions.
The fee structure is at a bare minimum. As it is a central University Institute, the fee is around Rs. 7500 per annum as compared to other private universities/institutes. Most students don't have enough means, so the fee structure is made according to them.
As the fees is bare minimum, scholarships are less. Students get 50% scholarships. With a fees of Rs. 7500 per annum, there would be no requirement of a loan.
Gender ratio is around 50:50. But girls seem to be more than boys. Students have either house parties or go to cafes to chill around. Workshops are conducted by the faculty for the betterment of students. Students from all over india come here to study. Politics play a major role in law faculty.
I don't live in a hostel or PG. But my friends who are not from Delhi tell me about the accommodation here. They don't live in University hostels but in rented flats or PGs. PGs are mostly on sharing basis and cost about 15000 (including everything).
Alumni of our college are placed in esteemed positions. Students who are studying can interact with the alumni through phone records in college. Moreover, seniors are helpful.
Exams in our college give students a serious chill. We have to study day and night to get bare minimum (passing) marks. Only a few of the few get 1st division. But class timings are appropriate for students. 8AM to 1:30PM. So, it doesn't leave us with a hectic day.
The entrance form is available online and its notification comes on the Delhi University homepage. Administration is good as there are no hassles in filling and submitting the form. Just had to go to the homepage and click on the PG entrance link. It is then redirected to another tab. There the personal details, previous college (a person must be a graduate and score minimum of 50% in 3 years). Then you upload your scanned copies of signature, photo and ID card.
Faculty is outstanding. They take personal interest in teaching their students. Most of the faculty is highly qualified. They at least LL.M. or Ph.D. in general or other specific subjects of law. Most of the teachers engage students in practical work.
We are provided with various other amazing facilities. Our campus is totally ragging free campus. All the classrooms are air conditioned and the teaching process is done with modern techniques. We get 24 hours free Internet and a central library with daily magazines, newspapers ,journals and many more.
It is close to my home. The main campus is the best the University has to offer. The fees are reasonable due to it being a State run University. And the fact that I didn't do particularly well in CLAT or AILET.
One thing that is common to almost all the public educational institutions is that they have good faculty members and bad administration. It is somewhat similar for the faculty of law. The teachers are more than great but when it comes to the administration it may be a little troublesome. Generally the problem arises in the delay in getting ID cards, case materials, library cards, examination forms, admit cards and so on. But this isn't much of a trouble since there are helpful seniors who are always there to help you. Also, the people in administration are also not so rude and are pretty student friendly. My overall impression of this college being myself a first year student is much more better than I expected it to be. The faculty has great facilities especially in the new building called the Umang Bhawan (for Law Center 1 and 2). It has elevators, spacious classrooms, a seperate moot court hall, parking facility, canteen, and a huge open space in the backside.
I had to write the AILET examination for getting admissions into this college, I scored well in both the exam and my boards, I was shortlisted based on those two marks and was called for admission process. I applied online for the course after my results came.
We are supposed to be interning with a law firm, a judge, or any government/non-government organization before the recruitment to know and experience what a workplace feels like. There are a lot of organizations that come here for recruiting, government organizations like UNDP, UNICEF and some well-known organizations like Kotak, Indian Oil, ICC come here during the campus drive. Most of the students are recruited.
AILET (All Indian Law Entrance Exam) is the mandatory and the only requirement to get into NLU. I got a good score out of 150 marks and hence I go the admissions in the first round itself. You can either apply online or in person.
This course needs exposure as much as possible hence the college make sure that we attend internships to gain an experience of a workplace before being recruited, Our seniors have worked under judges, NGOs, law firms, etc. Some of the companies that recruit from here are Singh and Singh advocates, Lexport, Reliance, Indian Oil, Kotak. Except those who feel like doing their masters in law, which is a lot, rest of the others get recruited.
Overall positive remarks from my side. It ain't no NLU, but for what it is it provides exceptional quality of education, with nice infrastructure, good crowd and helpful faculty. I am content in what the college is providing in terms of quality.
