NLIU Bhopal is next in line in our “Know this law school” post written by Swati Shanker who is a student out there.
Over to Swati.
NLIU, Bhopal is one of the premier law institutes of India established in 1997. The university admits 90 undergraduates every year through the Common Law Admission Test. The university is devoted to encouraging intellectual freedom and development of personality and outstanding qualities of leadership amongst its students.
Let us have a look at the stand of the university on the under mentioned criteria:
Quality of education:
The NLIU faculty is quite decent. The teachers are highly qualified and the best part is their readiness to help the students. The strong bonding between students and teachers is the best part over here which guarantees success to diligent students.
NLIU follows trimester system having a total of 15 Trimesters. Each Trimester includes Midterm exam having a weightage of 30 marks and an End- term exam having a weightage of 50 marks. Besides this, the students are required to make projects on each subject of the particular trimester which carries other 15 marks. Every subject carries 5 marks for attendance.
The Trimester system is really hectic and the marks for attendance system add to the plight. These two things make it very difficult to be active in extracurricular activities. However, the best part is that the duration of each Trimester break is quite long and one can spare their time then in creative activities apart from enjoying the vacations.
The university does not guarantee 100% placement, however, the placement rate is quite satisfactory. All top law firms apart from major PSUs and premium Banks recruit students from here. The placement rate varies each year depending upon the quality of students in a batch and the efforts of the Placement Coordination Committee. However, most of the NLIU students prefer higher education or Judiciary rather than placements.
NLIU has a student-friendly environment. The amicable relationship between seniors and juniors is the highlight of this criterion. Ragging is strictly prohibited in the college which is adhered to by all the students. The students here participate in all major decisions related to academics or administration.
NLIU organises its grand sports fest “Virudhikka” every year (in December) in which almost all the premier law institutes do participate. The students participate through various committees in the maintenance of discipline and other activities of the hostel viz. ‘Dining Committee’, ‘Cultural Committee’, ‘Discipline Committee’, ‘Medical Assistance Committee’ and ‘Event Management Committee’ – making the Halls of Residence unique in themselves and distinguished from the rest in terms of practicing participatory management and living democracy. Curfew time for the girls is 9: 00 P.M, however, the same is not applicable on boys.
NLIU stands on a really sound footing on this criterion. The University offers separate residential facilities for men and women. All residents are provided with single spacious rooms having adequate furniture. The residents are also provided with 24 hours hot and cold water and laundry services.
NLIU library (popular as Gyan-Mandir) is the central point of attraction which is enriched with quality books. The campus is eco- friendly and its greenery and beauty attracts both students and parents. The campus consists of four hostels. Two hostels are meant for the first year boys and girls to protect them from any probability of being bullied by the seniors.
The mess facility is admirable. There is a separate mess for both boys and girls. The menu ranges from North Indian and South Indian to the Chinese. Non-vegetarian food is served four times a week. Late night snacks are provided during the exam weeks. Sundays are usually a special treat.
The college provides guest room facility to parents and other visitors of students. The campus also consists of a large gymnasium having modern equipment, auditorium and cafe. It’s really a pleasure to walk in the campus especially at night.
Bhopal is known as the “city of Lakes”. The city is really clean and quite. One can enjoy the pleasures of both city and countryside keeping in mind the location of the campus. The college is located far from the city however this never creates a problem as to Swaraj Mazda vehicles are used for providing conveyance facility for the faculty, staff and students to commute to the city, market and railway station twice a week.
It’s never a problem for the foodies over here as the city consists of all the main food hot spots like Pizza Hut, KFC, Mc-Donalds other than tasty street food available at reasonable prices.
The weather condition is quite decent over here and it’s really pleasant during the rainy season. There are a lot of visiting places around the campus at a stone throw distance and one can always visit these places to kill time.
It’s actually a fun to be at NLIU.
