Best law college

Posted on 09 Feb' 17 by Kirti
Batch of 2006 | BA LLB Hons
The college has all the infrastructure required. The college already has tied up with the leading law firms in India and outside India. College life is so enjoyable because of the endless opportunities that are being provided. I am still in my starting years at college so I do not have a pre-placement offer as of yet. Hostels have table tennis tables, a tv, volleyball, snooker and pool tables. All the professors are exceptional at this college! The student crowd is diverse with people from everywhere coming to this college. The college may be a little expensive but they do give scholarships to students who can't afford it.

NALSAR University is one of India's first law schools. The campus covers a large area of land and is beautiful and serene. The Academic block is very well designed to accommodate the classrooms, administrative offices, faculty rooms and seminar rooms and etc. There is a conference hall that can accommodate a large number of students and it has excellent video conference facilities.The University has a huge auditorium which hosts all the important events of the University. The administration invests in the maintenance of the hostels and the other buildings quite frequently to keep it in a good shape. The University offers a large number of courses in the form of electives and seminars and this gives the students enough scope to pursue the course they are interested in. These courses are conducted by both in-house and visiting faculties over the entire semester. The University also has a number of reputed journals which has both students, faculties and other scholars in the editorial board. The University has a Policy Lecture Group which hosts various people from different fields like judges, academicians,senior advocates,journalists,etc. who come down to the University for discussions and to deliver lectures. There is an active student body which has different committees looking into different issues of the college. This student body consists of elected members from each batch and they work as student representation to the administration. This way the students learn to elect judiciously and also sort out their own issues. There is always some form of activity happening in the campus to keep the college life vibrant. NALSAR hosts one of the best debate tournament called the NALSAR IV which has very active participation from colleges from all over the country. Also the Justice B.R.Sawhney memorial Moot Court Competition is conducted every year which witnesses participation from various law schools from all over the country. Other than that NALSAR also hosts quiz fests, literary fest and other such tournaments which witnesses huge turn outs from all over the country. There are year round festivals and activities within the campus where the students participate as well as organise for fun and to display their skills. The sports committee of NALSAR also organises various events all round the year to keep the students involved in sporting activities. Movie screening takes place on many weekends for students to enjoy themselves. The hostels are well maintained and the campus has central Wifi connection. The library of NALSAR has a very good collection of books and journals of all fields of law. The library books serves as a very useful source for the students in their academic preparation. There is bus service from the University to the city and back so that the location being away from the city does not bother the students. The moot teams representing the University has done very well in both national and international moot court competitions over the years. The University has also seen good placement over the years and the hard-work of the students and the University is the reason for the same. Top national and international firms have come to recruit students and offer them internships. There is a very active student run recruitment and internship coordination committee for this purpose. The University like any other University has its own set of difficulties but they are negligible. Overall the NALSAR University has always shown excellence for a long time and there is no turning back.

This is what NALSAR is all about...

Well, to answer the question whether how good or bad NALSAR is, I'll list down the following points. By the end, they must be sufficient to answer the query which might be running in your head. 1. Infrastructure: The Classrooms are big, well ventilated with greenery all around. Seriously, the entire campus is so green and well maintained that if you don't have the worry of studying Law for FIVE years, you'll feel as if you are in a five-star resort. Apart from this, we have a pretty well-stocked library which is always updated according to the demand of students. One problem which a couple of people might complain about is the absence of air conditioner in the classrooms. But I don't think that is something significant enough as most of the time we have lovely weather. 2. Is something missing at NALSAR? There are one essential which is missing most of the time and also when presently is not up to the mark. This one thing is the availability of a good physician. We have ambulance service, full time on campus nurse. But what we lack is a well-qualified physician. This issue turns more significant when we consider the fact that NALSAR is Wayyy.....(really a lot) far away from the city. Nearest hospital which a person can approach in the case of emergency is also at least 20 KM away. 3. Is my college happening - Oh yes it is.... We conduct India's biggest and one of the oldest British Parliamentary debate. Other than that, NALSAR organises multiple other events such as Interrobang (the quiz fest), Lit fest and many other things are always happening. Other than we all the year round we have regional fest such as Awadh Magadh, Rajasthani fest and much more where people represent their culture and serve awesome food and cheer us up with their awesome performances. And finally, we have our Intra College fest - 'Carpe Diem'. It is a cocktail of fun in which entire college participates. 4. Academics and Placement- Something which almost everyone considers serious and can't accept any compromise. As most of the people know, the placement in NALSAR is one of the USP with which everyone gets attracted to the college. The placement percentage is really high compared to other colleges. With regard to academics, our college has good standards. Students qualify for Rhodes Scholarship. Also, teams perform well in both international and National level Moots. The above pointers would help a person in understanding how NALSAR is.

Our college has a state of the art library, auditorium, and a multitude of conference halls used by frequent guest speakers. Our college has an excellent set of alumnus and constantly exposes us to the best legal minds of the country by inviting them for speaking at our college at least once a month. The college itself boasts of a fantastic curriculum, which is flexible enough for exploring our interests.

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 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.
