      One of the best law colleges in the not only the Northeast but also in India.

      Remarks -
      9.2 /10

      Every place has its pros and cons. It is undoubtedly one of the best colleges but the faculty can't help you if you can't help yourself. The moot courts which highlight any law college is equally popular here but you need to show your interest to seniors and teachers.
