Let me try to be short and precise.Teaching method is ancient, lecturers don't have teaching manuals for students, which basically translates to classes being a take-down lecture of all the case names. Many of the lecturers detest using technology for effective teaching except one or two, sad part is they never share their slides as well except one(there are total of 11 lecturers). Evaluation and the method of evaluation is more of a memory test rather than being a test of understanding of law. You may be required not only to remember bare provisions.. you might be required to mug up rules, regulations, direct tax and indirect tax rates, classification etc. Well, why can't law exams be open book then, that too in IIT?
Most of the academic activity is routine, not providing enough time to develop or challenge your thinking. So, if you just want a degree, well good enough, but not so when you want to do anything more than that, like writing blogs, participating in moot court competitions. Every regulation here is an attempt to block it rather than to nurture it.
Attendance: Well you need to know this, lecturers expect you to be in every class else you may get open threats of de-registration even if you have a valid reason for your absence like your participation in competition or anything you want to pursue outside school. Quality of lectures are below average, not because lecturers are bad, but because they themselves don't take their primary job which is teaching as a seriously and are too busy finding and doing projects to upgrade their CV. It seems lecture is a secondary job without any effort put into to upgrade their knowledge. In some of the subject, lecturers depend on students to do a presentation without ever covering that portion themselves. Many a regulations could be arbitrary wherein you may be required to study 9 subjects in one semester as happened in 2016(5th Semester). Probably that is the reason why this school never wins in any moot court competition these days.
Vindictive Nature: The story goes that since students asked for "Principle of taxation", which is a core subject, dean sir decided to put all 20 subjects in "compulsory group" out of which only 18 are required to be taught. In just concluded end semester exams, for the same paper(Principle of Taxation), the faculty punished the students by asking questions which were more suited for Chartered Accountants, like calculation of taxable income wherein he conveniently forgot that subject is about principles of tax and not about mugging up the finance act 2016, so much for intelligence they say.
Last but not the least, library facilities are poor, being an IP school, there is no patent database. This Information is not to malign anyone, but to state the facts as they exist, feel free to use it before you join this college.
