College Infrastructure
The Campus is 23 acres, spread out yet well-knit and very green. There are many trees with loads of birds. The library is arguably the best among all law schools in the country. There are gym facilities and health centers and mental health support groups. There is an indoor table tennis facility, basketball court, football stadium, and yoga center. Students are also allowed to use the Sports Authority of India facilities. There are plans for large-scale infrastructure expansion.
Academics
NLS is famous for its academic rigour. You will find some of the best professors of law teaching in this university. There is an emphasis on the inter-disciplinary aspect of the course and hence the BA part of the BA LLB course is taken rather seriously. However, academics can get quite competitive and there is immense pressure to score well and have a good GPA.
Placements
Placements in NLS have always been 100%. Most students get pre-placement offers after their internships. Most people get placed in Day Zero itself while others on Day One. All the best law firms come for placements. However, some students opt out of this process to go for litigation or for higher studies.
Value-for-money
Unlike other government institutions, NLS is a little expensive. At the moment the fee is ₹275000 with a 5% increment every year. This is mainly because governments in India do not give enough grants to law schools and mostly seem to be concerned with engineering or medical colleges. But, yes, you'll get your money's worth considering the faculty base and curriculum.
Campus Life
NLS is rigourous. So, must students engage in activities that are related to academics. You will find people preparing for moot court competitions, ADR competitions, Debates, and likes. There are a number of student-run committees that take care of most extra/co-curricular activities. Teachers are helpful but the admin can be a little incompetent when dealing with certain issues.
Anything Else
NLS is great but demanding. There is always pressure to excel in everything. Competition is cut-throat. All these can take a toll on anyone's mental health.

The college life at NLSIU Bangalore was phenomenal. With the country's best law library and an institution in place which helps you to think and work in the right direction, couldn't have asked for anything more. Seniors have been the guiding light where the teachers failed. The faculty has gone to the dogs. But the institution has mechanisms in place to compensate for it. Those who want to learn, get loads to learn. Lots of extracurriculars, debates moots, sports and even music are encouraged and supported. This is accompanied by the beautiful weather that Bangalore has and this is what I crave for the most, now that I have graduated. The vice chancellor is one of the foremost academicians in the country and is a lovely person as well, always ready to help. The university doesn't have a dress code and free thinking is encouraged in every sphere of the university life.

NLSIU is hands down the best college in India to do your law from. We have a diverse and vibrant student community, drawn from all parts of India and abroad. The place is always abuzz with activity, with some event or another always around the corner. However, this is not to say that academics are overlooked. In fact, one of the things that make NLS stands apart from the crowd is how the students excel in both academics and extra-curricular activities. We have decent infrastructure for a government college, and the exposure we get is unmatched. The classrooms are often frequented by the very best in their field, giving students exposure they would not otherwise get. NLS has consistently been leading the placement charts as well, and NLS pass out generally eke out a decent living after graduating from here. Hostels could be a bit cleaner, though. Buth hey, you cannot have it all. We have stellar professors here, again the very best in their field. The fees may seem a bit too steep at first, but once admitted, the college makes sure that you do not quit your education midway for financial reasons. Plus, the amount of money that you put in is only a minuscule amount of what you would reap later out of your NLS education.

I am a 2nd-year student at NLSIU. Our college has a library which is better than that of most of other law schools in India. Talking of corporate exposure, we have regular seminars and guest lectures regarding that, and our college has best placement among National Law Schools. Our hostels are quite good, but there are still chances of improvement. I met some excellent professors. They are all helpful in a not just academic way but also as personal guides. Speaking of Student crowd, we have almost all top rank students in CLAT. The annual fee is about Rs. 1,70,000, which is on par with most of other National Law Universities. So, overall, I think this is one of the best National Law Schools in India, and I am happy that I made a correct decision by choosing it.

This is my second year in this college which also started a year back.Within one year of its starting, it has grown in popularity among lab students by leaps and bounds.The college is housed in the fort campus of the Mumbai university. Speaking by my experience we have one of the best faculties and being next to the high court of Mumbai also helps a lot.

The most open-minded people join this college and experienced professors nurture us. Never have I seen a place where you are not judged by the marks you score, the background you come from or anything. If two people click, they will have a good time won't give a damn about whatever bullshit the society thinks. When it comes to taking a stance against all the conventional stuff this society continues to do, we are always there and stand for it. So, good students coupled with amazing professors just makes this insane place for intellectuals to interact.

This college is unique in many ways. As the premiere law school, it has an incredibly strong alumnus base over all walks of life, many of whom take an active interest in helping out present students. The amount that can be gained from day to day interactions with top lawyers, supreme court justices, international legal stalwarts and the like is simply amazing. But then again none of this happens without a keen interest and initiative taken by the student. Law school allows you an immense amount of freedom, leaving your actual experience to be exactly what you make it.
