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 Maharashtra National Law University in Aurangabad (MNLUA) was established in the year 2017, making it one of the youngest NLUs in the country. It sits on 55 acres of land. It is one of the three NLUs in the state of Maharashtra, with the other two being in Mumbai and Nagpur. The decision to start them off was almost simultaneous. As of now, the MNLU Aurangabad only runs the BA LLLB programme. The LLB of course is the standard degree offered to Common Law countries’ legal study graduates. Master’s level or doctoral programmes are yet to be introduced here, though plans are on. 

Research is a key part of the MNLU Aurangabad. A lot of the research gets printed on the in-house publications. The main newsletter published on campus is the LAWRELS. Major campus events are also highlighted in here. It also includes broad points on key council meets. A faculty corner segment is also included where the faculty members can voice their views on key issues. Students from the institute have participated in and won several awards at the national level. This is especially true about moot court contests, debates and quizzes. The library here is one of the best stocked within the region. Besides the physical books on display, it also provides digital access to en number of international academic journals for research and academic purposes. Some special lectures are also conducted here on a periodic basis. All this has led to favourable reviews across rating platforms. The Careers 360 magazine, for instance, has rated the MNLU Aurangabad at AAA category. The institute has not yet been able to participate in any formal survey as no single BA LLB batch has graduated yet.
