Student Discussion

    What is about the Faculty of Law University of Delhi ?

    • ABHISHEK ARORA 2016-09-13 23:26:12

      The college lacks in infrastructure. The three storey building has wooden bench classrooms with no air conditioner. Fortunately, the library is air conditioned with books available in a good quantity and in latest editions. There is no wifi connectivity in the law college and the overall look of the building is nothing to feel proud about. Some students feel that the building can collapse anytime and the management should seriously take immediate steps in its renovation. Faculty of Law has an above average teaching staff with most of them having their Ph.D and Law degrees. Some are lawyers as well. Most of them are ad-hoc and come as a visiting lecturer.
