The University campus is verdant and vividly colorful in spring, at such times it feels more like a vacation home than a college, to be honest. The quality of education, and faculty however, leave much to be desired. Critical thinking is not encouraged. The administration is wrought with bureaucratic red tape. Placements are below par.

DR. RMLNLU: ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW.

Before I start about the college, I want the budding lawyers reading this to know and to first decide what you really want from the college. Naturally, the focus of many will be on the placements and the ‘packages’ that one is offered after the completion of five ‘long’ years. It might also be that some will be searching for freedom that an institution offers. Some might even be interested in other directions such as civil services, academics and writing because law as a profession doesn’t restrict you to a single field. Also, some might haven’t yet decided and are still searching (those are the best kind). Then are the classic lawyers; driven on thirst for knowledge and working of the courts, preferring litigation. To all of the above I want to say that do think on your dreams before moving on and don’t stagnate; laziness is the worst enemy of a lawyer and it has in its power all the tools to bring you down the ladder. Moving on, RMLNLU has in its power to give you everything mentioned above. Some might even prefer sports or modelling as a profession after entering a law college and RMLNLU has in its power to give you even that, obviously it isn’t a wand that you would flick and all your dreams would come true( what most/everyone thinks about ‘top’ law colleges). It requires you in exchange of your dreams; your efforts, hard work and consistency. It requires all of that which should be in you to get to your dream. Therefore, when you look for a Law college or in a Law college, make a road map of what you really want, let me say that again: What YOU really want! Let’s talk about RMLNLU now. RMLNLU offers one of the best infrastructures among the NLU’s boasting of Centrally Air Conditioned Administrative Block, Academic Block, Well Equipped Library, Moot Court Hall, 3500 Capacity Auditorium and A Conference Hall. Campus wide internet facilities, 24 hour power back up, separate, comfortable hostels for boys and girls (which are not air conditioned), Residential facilities for over 150 faculty members and staff. In the sports department, we have an Olympic-size swimming pool, lawn tennis court, basketball court, football ground, an indoor sports complex offering badminton court, table tennis, gymnasium. The university offers a built in hospital and medical staff providing 24 hours ambulance service. Then we have the canteen and shops that provide with almost everything a student requires in day to day life. There is a separate bank branch in the college itself too. Student run Committees are the lifelines of RMLNLU. The college has a total of 6 student run Committees including The Journal Committee, The Moot Court Committee, The Cultural Committee (TEHZEEB), The Legal Aid Committee, The Debate and Discussion Committee, The Internship and Placement Committee and The Sports Committee. Every committee has its annual flagship event in which each of them showcase the best which is EOS for the Journal Committee, named after the Greek Goddess of dawn, SCC Online International Media Law Court Competition for The Moot Court Committee, OHR for The Cultural Committee, RML National Mediation Competition for The Legal Aid Committee, RML Parliamentary Debate for The Debate and Discussion Committee, MANTHAN for The Internship and Placement Committee and AAVAHAN for The Sports Committee. The thing that sets apart RMLNLU from other NLU’s is the liberty it has to offer which is ample for a student. It can make you if you are independent or break you if you are dependent. The ‘no boundations’ and unrestricted environment is loved by one and all. The campus is peaceful, lush and green although it doesn’t cover areas as large as the IIT’s and IIM’s do but still it’s more than enough for a peaceful environment. Lecture hours range start from 10:00 am to 3 or 4:00 pm with lunch break in between, the faculty is quite good and some are very well endowed with knowledge and the art of teaching, I won’t lie and tell you that the staff is amazingly good and the best I have witnessed, it has its own problems which I believe every NLU does. The problems which exist for the faculty are torn down or sorted by the students which are the backbone of this institute as everything or most of the things are student run. Now, let’s come to the Debating and Mooting Culture of RMLNLU. The two committees involved are The Debate and Discussion Committee and The Moot Court Committee. People get a chance to go to moots and debates by showcasing their strengths in the Summer Grand Intra and the Winter Grand Intra for both moots and debates. The travel fee and the attendance missed are both compensated by the college when sending students for moots and debates. The debating and mooting culture isn’t certainly the best you’ll see in a NLU but it’s enough for you to excel if one has the will. After reading all that I have written above, one might wonder is it all just paper talk or do we really have some achievements to our name, hence the following. Recent debating achievements: Winners, D.R. Memorial British Parliamentary Debate, 2017 organized by PCTE Ludhiana. Recent mooting achievements: Winners, 7th edition of Leiden Sarin’s International Air Law Moot Court Competition, 2016. Sports: Winner at Virudhaka 2016, NLIU, Bhopal. I hope I wasn’t biased. Thank you.

The college infrastructure and the resources are really good. The college has a lot of committees run by students which organise activities on a year round basis and give the students exposure and experience of different things. the student body is very active. The library is brilliant and one can see most students studying there. This college has a mixed bag of students. The faculty is not so good but one learns on its own. Some of the teachers are very helpful and dedicated. The college offers freedom and time to students to decide what they want to do and pursue that by working towards the same.

Ram Manohar Lohia National Law University has a decent placement record. Every year students get placed in top league law firms like Amarchand, Khaitan. It has the best infrastructure when we compare it with other NLUs. It has Olympic size swimming pool, fully equipped gym, basketball court, long tennis court, games room, fully air-conditioned classrooms and one of the most resourceful liabrary one could have ever asked for. It provides a hygienic and green atmosphere, decent mess food and hostel rooms. Admin and faculty is average when it comes to cooperation with students. RMLNLU provides you with an awesome mooting, debating, mediation, legal aid society, ample of cultural events and literally events. It has various Committees taking care of these aspects, which helps in overall development of our personality as a lawyer. The moot court committee pay for our national and international moot expenses. Debsoc sessions are organised for enhancing debating culture in college. RMLNLU also has locality benefit as ample of shops, grocery store, pheonix mall is situated nearby, which makes it convenient on students part. If we will talk about sports then RMLNLU​ has all the necessities any sportsman will look for. It organised intra and inter sports events every year with complete success when it comes to participation. Last year we went to around 3 sports fests of NLUs and won medals in most of the events. It only has two semesters therefore it's the best place for those who are preparing for Judiciary or civils, as they get ample of time to prepare themselves with the help of high tech liabrary.

About College:

The group of institutions collectively known as the National Law Universities (NLUs) now number over twenty. Most of them recruit students using the CLAT (Common Law Admission Test) scores. This is considered the flagship exam, which gives entry to some of the finest Law colleges in the country. The competition for this is immense. The test includes 200 objective type multiple choice questions to be answered within a maximum time limit of 120 minutes. These 200 questions are divided into Legal Aptitude and GK hogging half the total share with 50 questions each. English and Reasoning are worth 40 each while math which is quite elementary is worth 20. For every wrong answer, a fourth of negative marks gets deducted. Success in this exam opens the door towards some of the best national law colleges (NLUs). In spite of the ‘national’ tag associated with the NLUs, they remain state universities. CLAT is also one of the few law entrances that were conducted on online mode but has now reverted to the offline avatar. 

For long, law lagged behind several other professional and degree courses when it came to prestige and career opportunities, but now, thanks to the NLUs, it is considered a top career choice. With the opening up of the economy, law grads can now take up careers in corporate law, international agencies, NGOs, Legal Process Outsourcing (LPOs) firms and academics, besides the conventional careers centres around litigation and the judiciary. This was the reason for the launch of the five- year integrated programmes by the NLUs which can be taken up by students immediately after completion of their school. 

The Dr. Ram Manohar Lohiya National Law University (RMLNLU) in Lucknow was established in the year 2005. The place is named after Dr. Ram Manohar Lohiya, who was one of the foremost freedom fighters, as part of the Gandhian Movement. The campus sits on forty acres of land in the state of Uttar Pradesh (UP). There is a luxurious guest house within for trainers and recruiters. Both UG and PG programmes are available here at the RMLNLU. At the UG level, the flagship five- year integrated programme BA LLB is offered. The LLB of course is the standard degree offered to Common Law countries’ legal study graduates. At the master’s level, the LLM is offered here. A PhD. programme has also been introduced. 

All year round, training programmes, workshops and seminars keep taking place. These training are targeted towards public prosecutors, members of the judiciary and other stakeholders within the legal ecosystem. Interactive sessions are also held with legal experts from both within India, as well as outside. Workshops are also held to aid government projects. There was one held for financial planning, and another for rural transformation in India, besides several others. 

There is quite a thriving student life on campus here. There is the Cultural Committee that looks into the nitty-gritty of all such events. A Debate and Discussion Committee is also onboard, extremely important for a law school. The Journal Committee oversees the preparation of the RMLNLU Journal. Besides, it also looks into the week-long literary fest titled EOS. There is a Legal Aid and Social Awareness Society on campus. Another is the Moot Court Committee. Other committees are for the purposes of – Sports, Student Welfare, Internship & Placement and for Website Management. 

Several events are also held by the respective committees. The flagship event of the Internship and Placement Committee is called Manthan. Here industry experts are invited to talk to the students about their real-world experiences. It helps build an industry connect for the students at the RMLNLU. There is also a parliamentary debate held on campus. The main inter-college fest is titled the Spoculit. A legal essay competition held here is the RILEC. Ohr is the main cultural fest organized here. Satta is an inter-college debate where teams are allotted some political party, and they need to debate on key matters. The main sports event is the Fenza. Several seminars are also conducted by the student body. 

All this has helped the RMLNLU climb up the rankings ladder across platforms. The Careers 360 magazine has placed the RMLNLU Lucknow at rank 14 for the country among all law colleges, with a rating of AAA. In the NIRF (National Institutional Rankings Framework) 2018, the RMLNLU finds itself on rank 8th for all India. This, in turn, helps boost the placement process tremendously, as top recruiters then make a beeline to hire students from here. Some of the key recruiters in recent seasons have been the likes of- DSK Legal, Anand & Anand, Phoenix Legal, SJ Law, Infosys, ICICI Lombard, CLAT Possible, BMR Legal, Juris Legal, Zeus, Economic Times, Sterlite Energy, Reliance Infocom, Khaitan & Co., Torrent Power, Aviva Life Insurance, AZB, L&T and Maruti Udyog besides several others.
