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 Law Institute University (NLIU) in Bhopal was one of the three oldest NLUs to be established. It is built on a total area of 60 acres worth land in the state of Madhya Pradesh (MP). Courses are available here at the NLIU 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, there are two courses available here. One is the LLM which is a one- year programme. The other is the two -year Master of Cyber Law and Information Security (MCLIS). Some non- credit additional courses may also be taken up. Doctoral programmes may also be undertaken here. 

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 two such centres here. One of them is the Rajiv Gandhi National Cyber Law Centre (RGNCLC), and the other being the Centre for Business and Commercial Laws (CBCL). There is a Centre for Research and International Law which is organized as one of the cells here. There are other cells at the NLIU such as the Centre for Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR). Another is the CSIPR or Cell for Studies in Intellectual Property Rights. Yet another is the CARES or Cell for Awareness and Research for Environmental Law and Studies. The Aadrika Cell is in charge of the media and management. A student-driven initiative at the NLIU is the PULER which stands for People United for Law, Education and Rehabilitation. There are other cells to look into – Moot Courts, Legal Aid, Law & Economics and Media & Law. 

There is quite a thriving student culture at the NLIU. In particular, the moot court event Tankha is very well- known. The debating, quizzing and literary society at the institute is known as Jus Cultura. The cultural committee in charge of all such cultural events, is called the Athena. There is also a sports committee to oversee sporting activities. The Alumni Affairs Cell keeps in touch with the alumni, many of whom are in top positions within their areas of work. A publication known as the NLLIU Law Review gets periodically published. A lot of the research conducted within the NLIU as well as sourced from outside gets a mention here. The institute is also involved in several external projects, both nationally as well as abroad. Collaborators worked with includes the World Bank, DFID (Department for International Development, UK), FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization) and the CASRIP. The last mentioned is the Centre for Advanced Studies and Research on Intellectual Property at the University of Washington in Seattle. 

The entire administration at the NLIU is looked after by a group of committees. They are in the areas of – Finance, Planning & Advisory and in Internal Quality Assurance. There is an Academic Council here as well that looks after any course corrections or general changes. All this and much more has led to highly favourable ranks from across the platforms. The Careers 360 magazine has placed it at 9th rank all India among law colleges with an AAA+ rating.

The college could do better in terms of being more student friendly. But other than that, it's a good place. The faculty could be more cooperative though. And they could do a lot better in terms of the canteen. But the exposure is good. and it is renowned

The infrastructural facilities of my college is not so good but we have a permanent campus,this one is quite good and the campus area is also huge.the campus placement of my college is so bad... but it is very early to say that because at the present time only one batch is passed out. I expect more from college hostel because there is no cleanliness and the condition of the room is not so good.

NLIU gives a holistic education to every student, theoretical as well as practical (but in all honesty, it is the efforts of students). Agreed that Bhopal might not be your first option, but it will teach you how to be successful even not very great conditions, basically how to utilise all resources.

I appeared for CLAT 2019 and I am confused between NLIU Bhopal and GNLU. Kindly help me out and state your reasons for suggestion.

Navanshi 28th Jun, 2019

Dear aspirant,

Its very tough to decide between the two both the NLU's are ranked one above the other in top 10,both the NLU's are the topmost NLU's so you can opt whichever NLU you like irrespective of anything, both provide good exposure, both provide excellent opportunities, GNLU is ranked 6 and NLIU bhopal ranked 7, yes comparisons can be done on the basis of geographical factors,you can decide any of the above based on location , feasibility of travel from your hometown etc etc.

GNLU: Diverse batch profile. Better rank quotient, more uniform batch. Established NLU, batch diversity due to women & NRI seats

NLIU Bhopal :One of the oldest NLUs. Slightly high rank quotient => less uniform batch, lesser % of unreserved seats to total

Hope this helps

Which is better NLIU (Bhopal) or GNLU (Gandhinagar).

Jay Rajesh Hiray 26th Jun, 2019

Hello..

I think that NLIU(Bhopal) and GNLU(Gandhinagar) are same..

As standard as nature of Education is concern both are Equally great there isn't much contrast in GNLU or NLIU, 

GNLU offer numerous course Such as BBA BCOM BSC BA BSW LLB which isn't accessible in any college of india. Staff is emotional you get some great normal or most noticeably terrible workforce in Both school. 

NLIU is third best Law college yet step by step its corrupting there is trimester framework in NLIU which keep you occupied all through year. 

Position - in both college situation is same

Hope these will be helpful..

All the best!!

MY Brother has scored 116 in CLAT 2019 and AIR around 5500 . What are his chances to get NLIU Bhopal under NRI quota?

Helly Shah 22nd Jun, 2019

Hi Paridhi,

NLIU Bhopal is a prestigious university which his highly recognised at a national level. The university opens many gates of opportunities for it's students and getting in this university is an achievement itself.

This university has 18 NRI quota seats but whether one will get in or not is completely dependent on the average marks of people applying for the NRI quota. Moreover, the fees of NRI is also very high.

Even in the NRI quota getting in with these marks is pretty difficult but you can always try as even though the chances are less the applicant might get in.

You can also check out last year's cut-offs of different law schools across India to predict the law schools your brother is most likely to get into. You can find the list of last year's cut-offs of law schools across India by clicking on the link below:-
