Classrooms are marginally big,with a/c's in effect as of late introduced. In any case, lighting is a touch of an issue, with no entrance to outside air, aside from when the entryways are kept open.Hostels at NUJS are not exceptionally roomy, but rather are in the grounds itself, which helps in development and access to scholarly piece and the library.Library is superb. Fluctuated and sweeping books, of setting up writers are massively helpful.ntensive. NUJS has an excellent mooting culture. They have a very active moot society.They participate in PDs, quizzes etc and organise them frequently.Students are the biggest asset of the college

It's entirely overpowering to be a part of NUJS. The best thing about NUJS is that, once you are balanced in the campus you begin getting a charge out of school life a considerable measure. It has a very friendly environment. The seniors are quick to help you in each conceivable way. They furnish you with notes, books, question papers, answer scripts, and so forth. Indeed, NUJs has a buddy Initiative which essentially gives a newcomer a guide from the fifth year to bail you out with each issue you are confronting. Academics is really good. The professors are exceedingly qualified and the most vital thing is that they are truly worried about your learning and are constantly prepared to help you in each conceivable approach to making you comprehend the subject. It has completely Air conditioned very much kept up a library with offices like computer centre and Wi-Fi. It likewise furnishes with online databases and journals. Aside from this, there are various events in every possible field like mooting, debating to music and dance and from Academic keeping in touch with recreations and games in which one can take an interest. You even make the most of your inn life in light of the fact that after a brief time of 'pining to go home', it resembles a home far from home. They serve a wide variety of dishes ranging from every part of India. Furthermore, the best part about NUJS is its cultural and sports fest "OUTLAWED" 7 "INVICTA" respectively. They are exceptionally captivating provide you with ample opportunities to interact with new people and the later one organises a really huge number of sports events which has participants from various law schools.

The college charges over 2 lakhs per year which is affordable by most; in case students cannot afford, scholarship is offered by university if students meet the prescribed criteria. The hostel provides all the facilities although people might complain of lack of good space.

Rolling with the Elites

NUJS being on the premier law schools in the country offers unmatched facilities to the students. As far as Infrastructure is concerned , it is very well equipped with state of the art moot court halls. The library is undoubtedly one of the best Eastern India with many famous national and international law journals being subscribed so that they are made available to the students for their research purposes. The class rooms are fully air-conditioned. As far as providing corporate exposure is concerned NUJS has an added advantage since most of the Alumni are placed in leading corporates in the country so the college doesn't have to make any special effort regarding this. Placements have been very good this year and we are looking to place everyone who is going to sit for placements. College hostel is one area which needs improvement since they are congested and not well maintained. Professors are generally well informed and they teach well obviously with some exceptions. The student crowd is extremely talented and have won accolades in Moots, Debates, MUNs . College is not that affordable and the fees are towards the higher end,

General Information

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 West Bengal National University for Juridical Sciences in Kolkata was the fourth of the NLUs to be created chronologically as it was established in 1999. Along with the NLSIU and the GNLU, at the WBNUJS too, the Chief Justice of India remain the ex- officio Chancellor. The total campus size if worth 5 acres of land. Courses are available here at the WBNUJS right from the UG till doctoral levels. At the UG level, the flagship five- year integrated programme BA LLB is offered. 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 here. The M. Phil is a field- oriented degree. At The doctoral level, both the PhD and the LLD are applicable here. Some distance learning and online certifications may also be undertaken from the WBNUJS. The entire academics here is split among a few schools, each with expertise in its own area. There are schools here for- Social Sciences, Criminal Justice & Administration, Public Law & Governance, Legal Practice & Development, Economic & Business Laws and for Pubic Laws & Comparative Jurisprudence. There is one more School of Technology, Law and Development. 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, Financial Studies, Women & Law and for Human Rights & Citizenship Studies. There is another Centre for Regulatory Studies, Governance and Public Policy (CRSGPP). There is also a Sunanda Bhandari Forum for Natural Resource Law. This is for productive debate and discussion on the topic. There are also three endowment chairs at the NUJS. They Are the Ford Human Rights Chair, the Sir Ashutosh Mukherjee Chair and the MHRD/DIPP (Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion) IP (Intellectual Property) Chair. The MHRD here stands for the Ministry of Human Resource Development. A lot of the research that takes place at the NUJS Kolkata gets published in their own in- house journals. The best known of them is the NUJS Law Review. Another is the Journal of Indian Law and Society. Yet another is the NUJS Journal of Science, Technology and Law. The other journals published here are the- International Journal of Legal Studies & Research, International Journal of Law & Policy Review, Asian Journal of Legal Education and the NUJS Journal of Regulatory Studies. The NUJS has also signed up for the National Digital Library and Swayam. These allow for academic journals published elsewhere to be shareable with students here due to the online access. The library here is one of the largest for legal education in the country. It also possesses institutional membership with other leading libraries such as the American Information Resource Centre and the British Council Library, both present in Kolkata. All this has contributed to the consistently high rankings achieved across platforms.
