When I joined the University,there was a trend of introduction where we had to wish our seniors and introduce ourselves(can call ragging), the faculties are not that good, sometimes we struggle understanding what we do not get their point. If you can manage to get into other university that would be better. Although the infrastructure would get better after moving to the permanent campus,but will take couple of years for things to go smooth.

Where life comes to a standstill, Actually

Unwarranted Statutory Warning: This review will be an enigmatic journey but on the wrong side of the river. Before moving to an in-depth analysis of the institute's viability to survive on the national scene, let me be straightforwardly clear about one thing, NLUA is everything apart from an institute. To be here or not to be here, that is the question!!, Well, this is what plagues the mind of every CLAT Taker year by year who finds himself stuck in the quagmire existing in this law school. The thing that makes this inquisitiveness justified is the institute's so-called state of the art building which on the first sight looks like a government hospital. Moreover, the persistent problems revolving around in-house sports and gym facilities, as well as the absence of an Auditorium, makes this institute an unsafe bet in light of minimal opportunities available due to the shabby infrastructure. In respect to the Internships and Work Experience, the students are stuck in a limbo due to the meagre number of corporate firms and established lawyers in and around Guwahati which inadvertently force them to seek holiday internships. Even though this a locational disadvantage, the institute could have taken measures such as the introduction of summer Courses, corporate Tie-Ups and weekly lectures/seminars which could have opened new gateways for the future but they failed to do so. Furthermore, the situation has become bad to worse because of the lack of commitment from the student community to explore newer paradigms and this fear is the prime reason that makes the life monotonous in this institute. In regard to this argument, there is a pressing need to strengthen the student community by providing them leverage to think out of the box so as to help them realize that law school is more than moots, seminars, and research papers. Being a fairly new kid on the block, NLUA has its demerits as discussed above but it would be wrong to single-handedly blame the institution for the pathetic condition of institutional placements and the reason is quite clear; The competition in the field of law is off the charts at present and only the fittest would survive. By this statement, the author doesn't want to demean the students who have immense talent and potential by their side but would like them to take this as a gentle reminder of the upcoming challenge. Additionally, one thing must be taken into account is that only one batch has graduated from this university and it would be too early to take a call on the future placements. An interesting fact about this institute is the presence of three different hostels at three different places outside the premises of the institute. This hostel triplet is marred by pest infestation, lack of sanity, filthy toilets, and noise pollution in excess to the excruciating stretch with the sole administrative building housed in the institute premises. It is a known fact among the intelligentsia that kosher guidance can do wonder by making possible the impossible. NLUA in this respect has adopted a whole together different trajectory by appointing such dominies who love to take pleasure out of pain experienced by students. During recent times, NLUA has gone through instability and unrest because of the frustration and helplessness exerted out by the student community in form of strikes which already has made the institute an unpopular destination. To make the matter worse the faculty instead of voicing legitimate student demands embarked on a spree to divide the whole student community so as to curb the rising demands for reformation. Barring few quality driven individuals, most of these faculties lacks teaching experience, credentials, unique thought process and top of that concern for students. As most of you were already warned that this journey would be a bumpy ride and in most probability, NLUA has lived up to its billing. But wait on!! The best is yet to come. Affordability. This institute is the third costliest National Law School in the country having yearly academic fees in excess of 2 lakh rupees. On this note, it also becomes quite apprehensible that this is the only list where NLUA has a podium finish. Finally, before going in a slumber this ill-fated NLUAite would like to take a jibe and state that Think and Think Twice!!, If you will, NLUA will never be your fate.

Being a first-year student, I came here with a lot of expectations. Primarily, the faculty system though good , somewhere I am getting stuck and the book recommendations as per the different subject teachers, is not given properly. Library is pretty small and the amount of the same number of books which are in high demand, is low.Hostel is good, food is pretty eatable as of now,. Management is slow. Temporary set up campus, permanent coming within March next year as per sources.First batch passed out, not at all huge placement record, past year surely may improve.

The permanent campus is coming up, we are promised to be shifted by 2017. The campus is very small to accommodate sports and recreational facilities, fests. Although, we are funded to organize freshers, farewell, celebrate certain festivals,etc. But, we do not have our fests or sports week or any extra facility to channelize the energy and talent. We do have student journal and law review, but no moot court or MUNs or Parliamentary debates. The fees charged is too high in comparison to the facilities provided. But since the temporary campus is in the city, so we do have access to the stadium and good food joints. We do have a decent library, nice hostel but only for girls. The condition of boys hostel is very disappointing. The placement scenario is very unpleasant, though just one batch has gone through that phase. The situation demands a stable VC, more exposure, and a good infrastructure.

My college is a good option to opt for .The infrastructure is pretty well because of the fact that we are in our temporary campus. Once we shift to Amin Gao all the desired will be fulfilled.The faculties are very good and really helpful.The students live here as NLU-A family without any differences. The hostel is clean and good.recently we had Aarambh 2016,freshers party where we all enjoyed to our fullest.
