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)

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 University Odisha (NLUO) in Cuttack was established in the year 2008, welcoming its first batch from a year later. It is built on a total area of 50 acres worth land. Courses are available here at the NLUO at both the UG and PG levels. At the UG level, the flagship five- year integrated programme BA LLB is offered. In addition, the BBA LLB is also provided as an option. This was developed due to the realization that students wanted a study theme which could combine the legal and business aspects. The LLB, of course, is the standard degree offered to Common Law countries’ legal study graduates. There is a third UG programme here, known as the Bachelor of Vocation (B. Voc.). This programme is offered at the Community College attached to the main campus. It has been introduced to implement the virtues of social justice. 

At the master’s level, the one- year LLM is offered here. In addition, there exists the Advanced Vocational Diploma in Paralegal Studies. The M. Phil and PhD. programmes are also available. These are research-based and practice-oriented programmes. Some distance learning and certificate programmes may also be pursued from here. Some of these optional certificate programmes are in the areas of- Security Laws, Mergers & Acquisitions Law, Advanced Commercial Contracts, Corporate Governance, Corporate Social Responsibility, Criminal Law Practice, European Business Law, Human Trafficking & Child Rights, Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and for International Law among others. 

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 centres here for the areas of – Child Rights, Disability Rights, Access to Justice, Natural Resource Management, Human Rights & Criminal Justice, Women & Law, International Trade Law, Intellectual Property Rights (IPR), Corporate Law, Consumer Law, Tribal Rights Advocacy, Industrial Relations & Labour Laws and one for Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). Due to Cuttack being one of the most important port cities in India, there is also a Centre for Maritime Law. There is also a Centre for Public Rights, Law and Good Governance (CPRLGG). A lot of the research that takes place at the NLUO gets published in their own in-house journals. The best known of them is the NLUO Law Journal. Another is the NLUO Student Law Journal, which as the name suggests, is the student version of the former. The other two are- Human Rights Law Journal and the Child Rights Law Journal. The institute is also connected to the GIAN (Global Initiative of Academic Networks) which offers a method for the academicians to keep updating their academic portfolios consistently. 

There is a thriving student community here at the NLUO Cuttack. There are several societies and committees here looking into student life. The Societies are here for Moot Court and Literary & Debating. The Committees are here for – Cultural, Sports, Legal Aid, Student Development, Tech and for Internship & Placement. There is also a Colloquium Opus. The institute has been accredited by the NAAC (National Assessments and Accreditation Council). The university also brings out an annual quality assurance report. A separate AQAR (Annual Quality Assurance Report) has been created to this end, to ensure that all the terms of the NAAC are complied with. All this quality compliance has massively boosted up the NLUO’s status among recruiters. Some of the key recruiters in recent seasons to the NLUO have been the likes of – IOCL, SAIL, Biocon, HKJ Associates, AZB & Partners, Capstone Legal, IC Legal, Law Desk, Lexport, Law Hive Associates and MCO Legals among others.
