      Internships opportunities are given to students in their long vacations. For placements companies come at the last year of college. As it is a professional course so anyone can also open their own firm.

      The college is started in the year 2016. So its placements programmes are not so good. But as far as I am concerned as this is a national law university so it has a good future for us.

      The college is still exceptionally new as it was just settled in 2016, as such the first group presently can't seem to drop starting at now, so the subject of situation is something we can not make certain about. Notwithstanding, it must be noticed that the foundation is a National Law University thus we can be cheerful for future chances.
