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 in Jodhpur (NLUJ) is the fifth oldest of the NLUs in the country, having been established in 2001. Both UG, as well as PG level courses, are available here at the NLUJ. At the UG level, the flagship five- year integrated programme BA LLB is offered. Another unique programme here is the BBA LLB. 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. At the master’s level, the LLM is offered in two key areas which are in Corporate Laws and in the Intellectual Property Rights (IPR). There is a separate IPR Chair as well, outlining the research credentials in the field here.
The entire academics here at the NLUJ is run by the specific centres, each having expertise in its designated area. There are centre here for – Corporate Governance, IP Studies, Transactional Law, Tax Law, Capital Market, Gender Studies, Legal Theory, Litigation Studies, Criminal Law Studies, Wellness & Counseling, Human Welfare & Empowerment, Risk Management & Derivatives, Competition Law & Policy, Environmental Law & Policy and in Banking & Finance besides a few other areas. There is also a BRICS Law Institute specially curated for the member nations. In addition, the School of Insurance functions with some degree of autonomy. Several chairs and endowments have also been received by the NLUJ to further its research credentials. These have been received from the likes of the RBI, GIC and New India Assurance Co.
Stitching academic ties and student exchange collaborations has long been the forte of the NLUJ. On the one hand, there are several ties domestically with bodies such as the Bureau of Policy Research and Development in New Delhi and with the MNLU Mumbai. It is also a member of the NLU- IIT- AIIMS Knowledge Exchange Agreement. On the other hand, it is also a signatory with several foreign universities in countries such as USA, UK, Russia, Germany, Canada, China and the Republic of South Africa. Some universities with ties forged include- University of New Hampshire, Freiburg University, King’s College, Ural State Law Academy, Beijing Union University, University of Arizona and the University of Johannesburg besides a few more.
A lot of the research that takes place at the NLUJ gets published in their own in-house journals. The best known of them is the NLUJ Law Review. Another is the Indian Journal of Legal Theory. Yet another is the Indian Journal of Arbitration Law. The other journals published here are the- Journal of Intellectual Property Law, Journal of Corporate Law & Governance and the Journal on Comparative Constitutional Law & Administrative Law. All this has contributed to the consistently high rankings achieved across platforms. It has been ranked as the 5th best among law colleges in the NIRF (National Institutional Rankings Framework) 2018.
This in turn has fueled an extremely positive placements scenario over the years. Some of the key recruiters in recent years have been the likes of – Clifford Chance LLP, Simmons & Simmons LLP, Herbert Smith LLP, SEBI, EY, ICICI Bank, Edelweiss, ICICI Lombard, Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, Birla Global Finance, Bajaj Allianz, IL&FS, NTPC, IOCL, BHEL, L&T, Hindalco, Tata Sons, Porsche, Infosys, Tata AIG, Wipro, Novartis and several others.

No, you cannot do 3 year LLB course from any NLU/ national Law Universities. All the NLUs in India offer only 5 year integrated law courses which combine an undergraduate degree like BA, BCOM etc with Law. This course is appropriate if you want to take admission in law after 12th class directly.
If You wish to take admission in law after completion of any graduation degree separately, then you can go for 3 year LLB. There are colleges other than NLUs that offer 3 year LLB.
Here is a list of law entrances for 3 year LLB course -
DU LLB - Delhi University
MH CET- GLC mumbai, ILS Pune and other colleges in Maharashtra
