DIRECTOR'S NOTE
It is a matter of great pride, privilege and pleasure to present to you the Graduating Batch

NLIU, as one of the premier law schools in the country, is equipped with state of the art
infrastructure, distinctive pedagogy, and a diverse confluence of students. The academic
atmosphere at the University is committed towards imparting quality and holistic legal
education to invoke curiosity and encourage initiative. The precise blend of classroom
teaching and rigorous evaluation enables the students to strengthen their conceptual and
analytical foundations of law. They have developed the ability to ask the right questions to
seek the right answers.
Over the years, this Batch has displayed tremendous zeal to develop a strong legal acumen
and satisfy their intellectual curiosity. I have witnessed the students explore their
tremendous potential, seizing myriad opportunities and responsibilities presented to
them; be it participation at distinguished national and international competitions, or being
at the forefront of every event organised by the University.
I am convinced that these students shall prove to be an asset for your organisation with
their skill, knowledge, attitude and enthusiasm. I invite you to visit our campus and wish
all the recruiters a pleasant and satisfactory experience here at NLIU.

Legislature in 1997 and pioneered its first academic programme in 1998. A member of the Association of Indian
Universities and patronized by the Hon'ble Chief Justice of India, it works in close association with the High Court of
Madhya Pradesh and National Judicial Academy, Bhopal.
The University proffers superlative infrastructure infused with a commendably comprehensive academic culture that
stands second to none. It proudly nurtures the best of brains, spanning all over the nation, honing their skills to create better
individuals. NLIU has been successful in fructifying its efforts to catalyze an all-round development of its students, ranging
from academic excellence to extra-curricular activities; from top-notch research abilities to encouraging participation of
students for community emancipation. The University has fostered lucrative partnership with many eminent institutions
like University of Lucerne in Switzerland, Georgia State University and University of Washington in Seattle, USA, McGill
University, Canada and Leiden University in Netherlands, augmenting multi-faceted growth of students.
A gratifying testimony to the success of NLIU is its exemplary faculty and accomplished alumni. Students have also made
their alma mater proud at premier institutions like Harvard Law School, Oxford University, University of Manchester,
National University of Singapore, and University of Warwick. NLIU, thus, strives in aeternum, to strengthen students with
valuable attributes of competence, confidence, righteousness, equipping them to become promising professionals in

wherein the year is divided into three trimesters of about 60 working days each. Interestingly, besides the submission of written
projects and their presentation for every subject, NLIU is the only University that has mid-term and end-term exams within each
trimester. Thus, throughout 15 Trimesters, every student undergoes a rigorous schedule of 5250 Compulsory Credit Hours, 750
Compulsory Clinical Hours, 140 Written Examinations, 240 days of Work Experience, 66 Compulsory Research Papers, 7
Compulsory Seminar Papers and 73 Compulsory Oral Presentations.
The students are trained to perceive legal problems in their multi-dimensionality, thereby contributing to the training of socially
conscious professionals. The faculty prepares extensive teaching material, which is revised and updated regularly to aid the
lectures. In each trimester, students are taught four core courses and at least two skill courses like Legal Writing, Computer
Science, Accountancy, etc. In the final year, along with compulsory subjects, students can choose their own elective courses for
