Feel free to comment if you've any doubt
Hey there, I am a law aspirant. i just gave my mhcet law 5 year exam i scored good enough to get into GLC MUMBAI. But after doing some research i found out that many people are believing that MNLU will be in the countrys list of top 5 NLUS. So shall I go for MNLU (NLU TAG) or is glc better?
Here I will give you a gist of both the colleges from where it stands as of now (in 2020) so that it can get easier for y ou to decide which one suits your interest more.
GOvernment Law College, Maharashtra- Has been ranked 11 for law by The Week. In the past few years only 10 to 15% of the students get placed but the highest package goes up to 6 lpa but the placement committee is working hard to improve the conditions (though they have not officially revelaed placement records). The libraray here is good but the overall infrastructure, not so much. The faculty is excellent, highly knowledgeable and easily approachable as they are very friendly. There are many clubs like SPIL , ADR cell, MUNSOC, MCA, and DEBSOC (debating society).
MNLU- Ranked 15 for NLUs by CLAT cutoff. The university was formed recently and there has not been any batch as of now that has graduated hence there are no placement records but it is expected that the placement cell will function just fine providing around 6 lpa average salary. The campus is temporary as of now and no permanent campus has been created but they provide flats and single room hostels for the students with mess facilities along with gym, swimming pool, volleyball court and basketball court. As far as the faculty is concerned there are ex-professors of NUJS, NLUJAA, Nalsar, GNLU and NLIU and a number of guest lecturers are invited every now and then. The curriculum is similar to that of NALSAR Hyderabad.
If I were in your shoes, I would have gone to both the places and talked to the faculty as well as the students there to get a btter idea as it is a matter of your future. However, if I were to judge by the looks of it I would have gone with MNLU (personal choice).
