Aligarh Muslim University's Faculty of law is a traditional one; that is to say that although the university and its law faculty is highly reputed nationally, the law department does not provide with some advanced learning methods that modern day law schools like National Law Universities do.
AMU is certainly good for law, but how good it will be for you depends upon what your career goals are.
If you want to get into judiciary, litigation, civil services or academics, AMU is a good bet. However, if you want to work in the corporate sector, you may want to choose one of those fancy colleges in the big cities which will provide you more corporate-centric education.
As per my personal experiences I can tell you, that studying law at AMU might turn out to be very monotonous, while choosing a NLU or a well reputed private institute (Symbi Pune, Amity Delhi, JGLS, etc.) will provide you with a lot of opportunities in the wide world that is law.
Law Campus: The Law Department functioned in Muir College from 1872 onwards till the new building for Law Faculty of immense architectural beauty was constructed around 1910, adjacent to Senate House on the northern side by the donations provided by the Oudh Bar Association. However this building (now being used by Department of English Studies) did not possess suitable and sufficient accommodation for the fast expanding Law Library and for holding of tutorials in LL.B. Classes which was made compulsory by the Bar Council of India. The Law Department was shifted to the new building which was constructed by UGC grants in the Chatham Lines campus of which Hon'ble Mr. A.K. Sen, the then Law Minister of India, had laid the foundation stone in 1965. The transfer of Law Department to the new building was completed in early 1980s. Till 1955 when principle of rotation for the Dean among Professors was introduced, the Head of Law Department was also the Dean of the Law Faculty.
Law Department and High Court/Bar Association: There had been intimate relationship between the High Court and the Law Department when part-time Professor and part-time Reader were allowed to be appointed from High Court Bar. Shri A. P. Dube, Bar -at-Law, an eminent advocate was the last part-time Professor - Head when in 1949 Professor K. K. Bhattacharya became the first full-time Professor - Head of the Law Department. The Law Department continues to have four posts of part-time Lecturers. It is notable that Sir Tej Bahadur Sapru, Pundit Moti Lal Nehru, Sir Sunder Lal, Dr. Kailash Nath Katju had been part-time teachers in the Law Department. Before they became Judges, Justice Iqbal Ahmed, Justice Wali Ullah Justice P. N. Sapru, Justice M. H. Beg , Justice M. N. Shukla had been part-time teachers of Law Department. Two Judges of High Court have consistently been members each of Board of Studies and Faculty Board of Law. Both the colleges have there own merits . Ultimately its your choice
