Life at NLUO is all about how you choose to spend your time there. You can learn a lot from not only your faculty but also your seniors and the legal community that chooses to be part of your daily curriculum. Most colleges are cut off from the reality of the profession but nluo, thanks to being a relatively young college and being in a remote place, faces a lot of hardship but does well despite these disadvantages.

National Law University Odisha which is situated in the city of Cuttack is an exceptional place to be. for a student here, college doesn't only impart education but also teaches a student life skills. Being located in a delta between two rivers, the residents of the college not only get to see wide green spaces but equally rare animals especially interests. Bugs and beetles. Academically the college is very good. The people of this college have left their mark at various national and international moot court competitions. It's a new college full of possibilities and opportunities. the infrastructure is beautiful and so is the kind of industry exposure the college wants to give us through a variety of academically driven experiences.

This college, with its sprawling campus and its half-finished buildings, would creep up on you by the end of your second year, this I am sure of. People drown and rise here with fearful transience, in studies, mooting, love, life, whatnot. Some things are very good here. The crowd is an apt representation of what the world would look like, both good and bad. Infrastructure-wise, it lacks at some places, makes it up with a doughty, determined crowd that wants to make it, no matter what. Placement is bleak, with the college playing a very minimal role. All jobs grabbed by our alumni is through hard work and determination of their own, and believe me, the prospects of hard work this college would provide a lot of scope for. When I graduate, I am going to miss this place.

The college is only 8 years old and with three batches graduated, and it has already gone places! It has one of the best classroom infrastructures with the use of top end technology. Although the library is small, it has one of the largest collection of books, especially for commercial laws. The University is also in the process of constructing a three storied library, which should be complete on about one year's time. The college places great emphasis and importance on mooting, with teams already having qualified and done well in the world rounds of the Oxford IP, Jessup, Frankfurt Investment Arbitration Moot, Manfred Lachs, and IMAM to name a few. The college gets frequent visits from Corporate Professionals and reputed people from the legal field to give guest lectures on contemporary topics, The University occupies a spacious 50 acres of land, right in between the Mahanadi and Kathjodi rivers, thereby keeping in touch with nature's best! Each student gets a single room [only] and gives them the privacy they wish to maintain. The college is also well known for its participation in various sports and cultural activities, and also maintains the culture within the University, thereby not making it a sole education hub. This places gives you the platform to ensure all round development, and gives you a platform to attain one's natural self, and develop one's skills and potential since most of it is student organized and student run. Although the University has students placed at all the top tier firms in the country, all of it is secured by the students through PPOs. The placement cell, is, however, dormant, with only 4-5 firms having visited the University in the last 3 years, but efforts are being done to bring more people here for recruitment. But all in all, it is a wonderful place to study. In about 10 years, I see this University going places!

The campus is located in Cuttack (at the confluence of the rivers Mahanadi and Kathajodi) and although the setting is very scenic throughout most of the year, Cuttack is a small city stuck in time (the 1950s would be my guess). The campus is newly built (some portions are still under construction). Collaboration with other colleges, NGOs, companies, law firms and professionals working in the east (Kolkata, Bhubaneswar, Vizag) could help boost the industry exposure. Life in Cuttack is not happening, but if you have the right company, you can survive. Placements- okay-ish, Student crowd- mixed bag, some great, some not so great (like, I guess, any other place)

The experience here is a mixed one. Just like anyone's home you have to do your daily tasks and help each other just like your family. The food here is generally of mediocre quality and hence makes us miss our home in that regard. The placement is not good and the sole reason being the disadvantage of the location but the crowd here is good.Overall I would say the experience is not at all bad.

Our college spans over a huge area on the banks of two beautiful rivers. The college being a newborn is still under construction, but the important buildings like hostels, academic block, and administrative block are fully furnished and functional. We hope to have an independently functioning library building soon too. The college is new and is at a geographically disadvantageous position but still with more and more alumni being created our presence in the industry is being marked. Also, the college does very well academically and in non-academic activities which help us to be visible in the market. the college has a lot of diversity among students and students also have relatively greater freedom and socio-economic rights in the campus to conduct themselves. this encourages a lot of student-driven activities which one can participate in. But of course, there is a need for more. The placement scene in college is not so developed yet but it is hopefully on the rising trend. basically, it is a decent place to be as it inspires you to do well academically.

The Battleground

NLU Odisha, a place where no laws of war exist. The attacks an individual faces here is multi-faceted, the administration is like a bunch of departments with no synchronicity, similar to Austin's bunch of commands that don't amount to a legal system. The organisational structure of the University is unclear and the people concerned love to shift their responsibilities fluidly from one to another, effectively making any interaction with them absolutely energy draining. The infrastructure of the hostel is as of yet satisfactory, but with the increase in the number of admissions in a batch, there is a foreseeable problem of comfortable housing for the students, girls in particular. The faculty is the best mixture of competence and incompetence, there are few of them for whose lectures I would miss my breakfast, and that is saying something. But there are few others whose classes are equivalent to torture. But University is not all that bad, the library books and dedicated students make up for a lot of its drawbacks. The faith that the Alumni and the students can salvage this dratted place is all helps me survive here.

Our college flaunts a very good infrastructure. Though it is a new college and we are under construction but required facilities are in place and are very good. But obviously, faster construction would help construct a better environment. Academic exposure in terms of guest lectures and databases for research are quite good but we lack exposure in the industry where the majority of our students seek employment. Hence, it affects the placement culture of the college. Apart from this, the student crowd is pretty good and there exists healthy interaction among students. As a whole, this place is a good place to be, especially if research and academics are your primary concern.

Life at NLUO.

I am Divya Rathore, currently in my third year at National Law University, Odisha. The college is a pleasant place to be and provides an atmosphere for the overall development of the students. The college is in its developing stages and the infrastructure is still coming up and will hopefully be complete in a year's time. The college provides for a sports arena with elaborate courts for various sports. As far as hostels are concerned, students have single occupancy rooms to themselves and are well maintained. NLUO has earned one of the top places in moot court competitions and has a very strong and healthy mooting culture. NLUO is one of the few institutes where the student crowd is diverse and is a place where different cultures meet.The campus is situated in the lap of nature, between two rivers and is surrounded by greenery which makes it extremely picturesque and surreal. The college can work upon certain facilities like provision of proper canteens and could try speeding up the construction work at the university campus. keeping in mind the fact that NLUO is situated at a comparatively smaller place (Cuttack), frequent cultural and extra-curricular activities would bring the college to life. overall, my experience at this college has been so far so good and I expect to see the college grow in the coming years and become more student friendly.

The Beauty And the Beast

See, despite a beautiful location, my college suffers from tremendous location disadvantages being situated in Cuttack. Without that factor, I guess the college would have been better off. We have some really cool professors but some of them know less than we do. As far as the crowd is concerned, it is bipolar, divided between loud Bhopalis and really smart people from all other parts of India. The administration is entirely arbitrary ( like the Red Queen from Alice in Wonderland) and that adds to the bad college experience. Otherwise, I guess it could be pretty cool. P.S. We have a really pretty campus.

The college life has a lot of free time to pursue whatever you feel like, be it co-curricular like committees and Centres, extracurriculars like moot, debates, ADR, sports, music, dance etc. The college funds a lot of the students' activities, the teachers are willing to help out the students with extra and co-curricular activities and there is the facility for all of these activities to be pursued at the student's leisure. The faculty ranges from mediocre to brilliant and despite the mediocrity they manage to teach the subject well. The administration is tricky, infrastructure is developing rapidly, hostels are comfortable, wardens keep a check on everyone, the library is growing and campus atmosphere is beautiful. Pictures attached.

We have quit good and big campus. Infrastructure is really good. Hostel facility is excellent as there are single seated rooms available for all the students. The faculty is average, we have some really good authorities and some teachers are average. We have 8-9 different centres running for the better knowledge of students.

NLUO is one of the prestigious national law universities situated between two rivers in cuttack, odisha giving it a beautiful view for those who love nature, crowd is good so is the hostel with single occupancy room, food is good but still you will miss your home cooked nutritious food, locality outside the college and the city is something that you might not find good enough especially if you are from a metro city. I would say nluo is a very good institute and worth your money.

Library Resources, including online resources are very good and help us in a big way. There is a working centre on corporate law and moot environment in the college is very good. College should keep in touch with the law firms and other employers and should also maintain placement records of alumni. College provides single-lodgings, which is better than the rest of colleges. The mess provides good meal, so no complaints there. Professors like Mr. Uday Raj Rai, Faizan Mustafa have worked in the college. Both of them, along with others, have excellent credentials and are good teachers. College crowd is good and supportive for academics.

MY FEAR ABOUT MY COLLEGE

The nature around the campus make every one feel relax. We have nice classrooms,good library, football,volleyball and tennis courts . I don't think it should have more facilities. I don't think so that our college needs some industry exposure.My friends,the teachers who are so friendly , and especially the seniors who make us comfort. As it is newly established Our college doesn't have proper placements . In hostels we were provided single share rooms, 24/7 WIFI etc there is everything which we require. There are no exceptional professors each and every professor is so friendly. The students what should i say about them they are simply awesome it depends on us how well we get attached to them .

Young university growing at good pace

The college is a young university established in 2008 and is growing at a good pace. The infrastructure is very good with all necessities provided. The faculties are invincible. Student quality is also nice. good competition within the campus. The campus provides ample opportunities for the students to excel in the co-curricular activities like boots and ADR's by giving them a platform to enhance their oratory skills. Moreover, the college has a good reputation when it comes to boots. Sports infra is also good and college has got good representations and accolades in various college sports fests in the country. The syllabus of the courses provided is also nice and congruous with the needs of the law student. The only lacuna is that of locational disadvantages due to which the college does not hold placements records as the top 3 law universities have but since only two batches have been passed, its a long way to go. The college has got good growth potential.
