      The National Law Institute University has a well established Placement Coordination Committee which has been taking care of recruitiments. For those willing for work with corporate houses and law firms, a number of employers visit the campus during the placement drive and offer opportunities, though students manage to get PPOs in large numbers during their internships as well. For those inclined in litigation NLIU is an established brand name being in the top 3 law schools in the country. Many students also opt for social sector.

    What is the review of National Law Institute University, Bhopal ?

    replyEdit
    • DHRUV JHAWER September 13, 2016, 7:01 am

      The National Law Institute University has decent infrastructure with a green environment. The library is well built which creates a good reading atmosphere. The canteen here is not so good due to unavailability in variety of food. The college has various cells which are primarily student run and function for providing competition opportunities.The senior-junior relation is a delight here , with a good mutual relation. The hostels are good. The faculty here is unmatched. The basic reason behind this is the way of teaching. The pedagogy here is to discuss ideas and class interactions with less focus on textual studies. The crowd here is undoubtedly very competitive and with students turning from almost all parts of the country and abroad. The activities organised by the college are again plenty which provide numerous opportunities to grow.
