        I opted for this college because it is in my home state. The college has a huge alumni base which is very essential for an individual to get a head start in his/her career. Faculty to student ratio is good. Student body is strong so all the grievances faced by a student is steadily solved. NUJS hosts one of the largest college fests in law school circle.

        It was a home away from home for me. If you judiciously use everything the college has to offer, not only will you leave as an extremely well qualified lawyer with a great job but also as a very good human. But like every other college, it ultimately depends on what you chose to do with the time and resources at your disposal.
