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 National Academy of Legal Studies and Research (NALSAR) in Hyderabad was the second of the NLUs to be formed, as it was established in the year 1998. It is built on a total area of 55 acres worth land. Courses are available here at the NALSAR right from the UG till doctoral levels. 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. There is also an Integrated LLM plus PhD. programme here, besides the standalone doctorate.
The institute is also a leader when it comes to legal research. For this purpose, specific centres of excellence have been created to facilitate the same. There are centres here for the areas of – Family Laws, Disability Studies, Corporate Governance, Air & Space Law, Economics & Finance and for Legal Studies & Justice Education. There is another Centre for Constitutional Law, Public Policy and Good Governance. Named centres are – NC Banerjee Centre for Intellectual Property Rights Studies, MK Nambyar SAARC Law Centre for Advanced Legal Studies and the Dr. SP Chatterjee Centre for Environmental Law Studies. The NALSAR also became one of the first NLUs to introduce an MBA programme run by the Centre for Management Studies. Besides the usual streams of study, it focuses on the specializations for Business Regulations, Corporate Governance, Court Administration, Entrepreneurship and for Innovation & Sustainability Management.
A lot of the research that takes place at the NALSAR gets published in their own in-house journals. The best known of them is the NALSAR Law Review. Another is the NALSAR Student Law Review. Yet another is the Media Law Review. The other journals published here are the- Indian Journal of Intellectual Property Law, Indian Journal of Constitutional Law, Indian Journal of Law & Economics, Environment Law & Practice Review, Journal of Corporate Affairs & Corporate Crimes, NALSAR ADR Journal, International Journal of Constitutional Law and the NALSAR International Law Journal. A working paper series is also ongoing at the NALSAR, known by the Open Access Initiative. Newsletters are also curated by the students and staff here. Research-based studies and reports both external as well as internal, are documented and analysed here.
Several Endowments are also found here at the NALSAR for lectures, research centres, moot courts and for gold medals. The NALSAR has also been a prominent player when it comes to stitching foreign collaborations over research and exchange programmes. Some such collaborators are in the USA, UK, Australia, Canada, Germany, Israel, Switzerland, Singapore and in the Netherlands. To cite a few examples, names include- the Griffith University, Kings College London, University of Warwick, University of Western Ontario, University of New South Wales, University of Oklahoma, Radzyner School of Law, Southern Cross University, Santa Clara University, Queensland University of Technology, University of Lucerne, Maastricht University, Singapore Management University and the Cardiff University, besides several others.
The NALSAR is also a regular participant in industry consulting assignments. A Public Policy Group too is run within. Another initiative is the Lecture Series on Constitutionalism. All this has contributed to the consistently high rankings achieved across platforms. It has been ranked as the 3rd best among law colleges in the NIRF (National Institutional Rankings Framework) 2018.
