    Verified Review


    Neither the teachers are interested in giving lectures nor the students are interested in attending the same. However, if a student wants to study on his own he gets ample time do to that. The teachers though may not teach but are considerate if you have any doubt in any subject.

    Serious business(lol)


    Academically, our college needs to do much more. Hire better teachers to begin with. Make curriculum more relevant. And there is a need for practical studies. Our batch didn't get to study one important subject which is a shame because it is needed in every subject one reads.

    Verified Review


    I am pursuing B.A.LLB. (Hons.) to further my aims of corporate law and talking about the quality of teaching, it varies from professor to professor. The varsity has some exceptional professors in varied fields of law while a few sub-par assistant professors as well. The course curriculum is updated timely on the basis of recent developments in the field, the good professors also include these updated stuff in their teachings while the orthodox ones depends on the same old format and structure.

    How to Apply for R.M.N.L.U. in the course of BA LLB 2022?

    Dear Akriti,

    Ram Manohar Lohiya National Law University is one of the twenty two universities that take admission based on Common Law Admission Test (CLAT).

    To apply for the BA LLB Course for 2022, you must have successfully qualified for CLAT 2022. Once you get the result, you can apply for counselling with the CLAT consortium after paying the requisite fees. Make sure to keep preference for RMNLU high. If you get through the counselling successfully you'll have to pay the fees to enroll in RMNLU.

    If you do not get an NLU in the CLAT counselling, the counselling fees will be refunded.

    Regards. Best of luck! I hope this helps!
