As soon as the CLAT scores were declared I knew I was going to be allotted Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law. I was very excited to be a part of the university. I had heard that it was one of the premier institutes for law and soon enough I discovered why. Its most striking feature was the infrastructure. It was equipped with everything, from air conditioned classrooms to air conditioned hostels, IT lab, a cafeteria and a canteen.
The students were then introduced to the experienced faculty members. The professors were very attentive apart from being highly qualified. Their effective teaching mechanisms like Power Point Presentations, discussions and debates make classes interactive. They are very passionate and want their students to learn everything. The university however, is very particular about the attendance, way too particular.
The ambience of this university is surreal. Students here are committed to what they do and what they care about; with the university providing them with enough opportunities to realise their dreams.
Being in a law university, one expects a well equipped, fully furnished library and RGNUL meets the expectations fully. The extensive library system houses the latest collections of books, newspapers, law magazines, subject related books, compendiums, bare acts and law journals.
There is much more to this university than endless stacks. RGNUL encourages every student to take part in sports and remain fit. There is a football ground, a basketball court, a volleyball court and a gym for the furtherance of these interests.
The Vice Chancellor and the Registrar are extremely helpful and thrive to open every door of opportunity for their students. The examination and marking system is very transparent, leaving no room for partiality. The University is very upfront about issues on campus and keeps everyone diligently informed. Campus crimes are practically a myth. The placements are quite satisfactory, with many of the students being placed with top notch companies like Amarchand and Mangaldas.
The mooting and debating culture is appreciable. Moot court competitions are an inseparable part of a law student’s life. At RGNUL, one gets to participate in such competitions from the very first year. The university conducts intra-moot, national moot and international moot court competitions.
The ideology of the university is to strive for intellectual growth rather than focusing on bookish knowledge. Hence, it can be said undoubtedly that in the coming years RGNUL will be the topmost National Law University of India.
