A university which strengthens the edifice of students

1- The journals of various scholars of their field in the library. 2- The administration must jump in the initiatives of students to constitute a Recruitment Cell. 3- Of course food is the basic hue and cry of a hostel resident, it must be enchanced. 4- The university is definately affordable for an aspirant who can keep his pocket and his dreams on an equal footing. 5- The professors of this university are very hardworking and justify the reason to be one, but a good scholar need not be necessarily a good teacher, so a scope of improvement always remains when it comes to conducting a class.

More than just a NLU tag

Ankit Singh

Chanakya national law university , the 10th NLU among the 17 NLUs in India is a mixture of everything that a person hopes to find in his college, from academics to sports and from debating (which is a religion here at CNLU) to cultural activities , every field gets its share of attention. The infrastructure of the college is really nice with air conditioning in all the classrooms and moot courts, and Nishant Nilayam (CNLU Library) is well equipped with almost everything that you might need for your academics. The boys and girls hostel which are about 100 yards away from each other (winks) have a well-equipped gymnasium so as to keep the fitness freak within you alive. The mess provides 3 meals a day and the quality of food served is fairly decent but be warned and do not be expecting the 5-star arrangement. Not to miss the lawyer's cafe (our canteen) provides some lip smacking snacks which are really affordable. The market being just at a 2-3 minute distance keeps you connected to the city of Patna overall CNLU won't be of disappointment to you .

A battle against notions

Patna, this one word is enough to deter most people even if they have never been to Patna because of the preconceived notions of the place being backward, orthodox and every other negative adjective that you can find in the dictionary to describe a place. A normal person is skeptical so, you can think of how a student would perceive Patna when it comes to his/her graduation studies. I come from the same lot of people who had some preconceived notions and had the shock of my life when a seat in CNLU Patna was allotted to me when I wrote CLAT in 2013. It has been three years since then and I feel , now, I can give a fair analysis on how CNLU Patna is as a college. INFRASTRUCTURE: The college in general has good infrastructure, has ample open space, decent hostels and is spread over 18 acres ( enough for a law school, I feel). The basic amenities are fulfilled properly but we desperately need the half constructed auditorium( which now looks more in ruins) to be completed. The classrooms and the hostels are well kept and cleanliness is a big high point this place. We can have more sports facilities as all our sporting endeavors from kabaddi to football have to play on the same field. LIBRARY: The library is housed in a separate building with good books and volumes but there is scope for more additions. At times there is only a single copy of a book and it becomes maddening when a lot of people need the same book and at the same time. FACULTY: Umm, the average should suffice for the same. You have a varied lot in terms of faculty members like some who kind of give in all of their heart and soul, some who just fulfill it for the sake of it. One big problem is that quite a handful of teachers have knowledge but they can't deliver in front of a class. (That's weird but it happens quite a number of times) CROWD: Here we suffer from a lot of locational disadvantage as a lot of people wouldn't like to prefer studying here. Apart from that, at present you have a decent crowd with a great variety, though, the reservation policies ensure a sizeable population from Bihar. ( and before you get judgmental,no, they are not all that bad, some of them are true gems.) Here,you can find the geek who wouldn't budge his nose out of books for anything in the work, the one who cares just for marks, the one who tries his hand at everything and one who just doesn't care. So, in one way, anybody can find their type of people here. PLACEMENTS: One major place where locational disadvantage hurts us real bad. People are skeptical about coming to this place so the placement scene is quite dismal. However, there is another factor that needs to be seen when you see our placement stats, as a sizeable chunk here,( in certain batches more than half of the batch) has an inclination towards the bar, the bench and administrative services so the population looking for jobs reduces greatly. INDUSTRY EXPOSURE: With the High Court in vicinity, the ones looking for a career in the Bar have good exposure with running internships available but the not the same can be said about the law firms and corporate scenario, as the students have to wait for their internship breaks for the same. CAMPUS LIFE: You have debates and sporting activities going on at times. The campus life thing depends on the person as you get a lot of time and you are free to utilize it as you want. You can debate, try your hand at nukkad, play but there is no such push of sorts. If you want to do it , do it and add on to the campus life. Most of the campus life here depends on student initiatives like nukkad, inter batch sporting leagues, etc. The campus can be very dull if you decide to sit in a corner and wait for things to happen. Take an active part and get things to happen. So, for anybody who wants to join CNLU, for sure we can't lure you with the benefits of a metropolitan city but you have a great chance at excelling if you have that drive in you. The law school ensures you have a time at your disposal , so you can use it as you want. Drawbacks are always there but the law school is worth giving a chance if you don't really have something extraordinarily better than this.

The best college of Bihar

Ashwini
Posted on 05 Sep' 16 by Ashwini
Batch of 2018 | BBA LLB Hons
To begin, the campus is eco-friendly..truly refreshing and clean, probably the best in the state. The faculty is intellectual, you just need to grab as much as you can. What lacks here is industry exposure and placements prospects are meager. However, placements have improved in past years. College life is cool. No place is perfect, you need to make it a better place. The hostels are quite average. The biggest problem is of common washrooms. The faculty provides unlimited help and guidance but, you need to hunt your own capabilities. Overall, the college is good and I would recommend it to others as well.

Average college

Batch of 2017 | BA LLB Hons
College is not so good infrastructure is good. the college place is not so good located it should have been to some other place to attract more industry exposure. with more cultural and educational fests the college life should have been more happening. the college doesn't take an active participation in the placement. the hostels are very good. professors should have been better. due to the student diversity the college is flourishing. the student crowd is excellent in our college. the college is affordable in terms of price.
