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.

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.
