Yes, we have a committee which specifically deals with internship. Based on the merit of the students,they are recommended to some of the reputed law firms or Companies all across the county. Stipend varies with respect to different law firms.
Yes we have our seniors working in different law firms and they really guide us whenever we face difficulty with respect to internship or academics.
We are fortunate to have faculties who have degree from some of the most reputed colleges and national law Universities. All are expertise in the field of law subject they teach and my experience with them has been pretty well. Further they hone our skills with activities such as Moot Court Competition Group discussions and project work which has played an indispensable role in my career.
College management plays an important role in shaping the future of the university. Our college administration is well equipped with efficient staff and I believe that our college is surely in safe hands. They are student friendly and helps the students in need.
You need to appear in the CLAT entrance exam to get admission in this college as this college is part of the list of National Law Universities under CLAT. Based upon your ranking you are called for provisional registration. The process is rigorous as there are only 120 seats and half of them is reserved for Andhra Pradesh and Telangana students. You are required to submit the required documents and demand draft on the day of counselling after which you get admitted.
I find the fee structure little expensive in comparison to other premier institutions of same standard. During my first year our college fees was Rs. 1,55,000 excluding mess and hostel fees. We are about to shift to out new campus and the hostel and mess fee will be decided once we shift into the campus. It may seem to be little expensive but then quality of education provided covers up for everything.
I am fortunate to not have a very hectic exam structure in this college. We have internal exams consisting of mid sem.projects ,group discussion, presentations etc. Of 50 marks and then external exam of end semester papers of 50 marks each making each paper being evaluated out of 100 marks. It is not at all hectic and ample time is given to the students to participate in various extra curricular activities which the college believe is very important to shape a law student career.
No as of now there is no scholarship or loan facility provided by my college. Not many years have passed by ss this college was established in the year 2008 and is about to shift to its new campus but I am sure once we get settled college will surely look forward to provide scholarship to meritorious students.
College has established a Placements Committee to work extensively for job opportunities for the 5th year students. Different law firms are approached by the concerned members of the committee. Brochure is being made by collecting Curriculum Vitae from the students and then selection procedure is being followed. Based on requirement of a law firm and the merit of the law students they are recommended to different law firms. Students then go through rigorous selection procedure of the law firm upon successful completion of which they are granted job in the respective firms.
I took CLAT which is basically the entrance exam to get admission in National Law Universities across the country. My rank in the CLAT was 2677 and based upon my ranking I opted for Damodaram Sanjivayya National Law Universities. No doubt it has its own benefits because you get to spend the 5 years of your college life at such a beautiful place of Visakhapatnam.
I can't write about the hostel and mess food as we are yet to shift to our new build campus. I have been living outside taking room on rent from past 3 anf half years. One can only tell about the same once we shift to the campus. Once we shift to out new campus then I can assess the standard of the hostel and mess facilites. But I believe that college will surely take care of the same and will do everything to provide us a confortable college life.
We have an annual Moot Court Competition knows as Damodaram Sanjivayya National Moot Court Completions (DSNMC). We also have annual parliamentary debates known as Vakta. The college also encourages students by conducting various sports activities , dance and singing competition and other extra curricular activities. Our foundation day program is celebrated in a splendid way and Onam exposes us to rich culture of South.
These 3 and half years of my college life has been mesmerizing and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. We have students from different states and it feels good to interact with the such diverse crowd. Extra curricular activities are given utmost importance in our college and we have annual sports fest. We also have Parliament debates, moot court competition. The gender ratio is pretty good and on average the number of boys are almost same as number of girls. All the students belong to different economic background but that does not hinder the bond all of us share with each other.
The course structure has been created taking into consideration the standard followed in other National Law Universities across the country. We have total of 10 semesters and each semester consists of 5 subjects. I found the course structure well balanced as it may sometime become strenuous when you have criminal law and corporate law in same semester. So all these things were taken well into consideration and it was pretty amazing .
