    National Law Universities (NLU) or National Law Schools are public law schools in India, founded pursuant to the second-generation reforms for legal education sought to be implemented by the India.

    The first NLU was the National Law School of India University (NLSIU), located at Bangalore, which admitted its first batch in 1988. Since then, most of the states in India have established an NLU. Currently there are 23 NLUs across the country. Since their inception, these law schools have continuously been ranked as India's most prestigious and premier law schools by various agencies and have been ranked amongst the best law schools globally by leading agencies like Quacquarelli Symonds (QS).

    In contrast with the existing pattern of legal education in India, the proposed autonomous law schools varied in structural design and in various other respects. Some of these can be identified through the characteristics they carry:

    Autonomous status of the law schools

    This implied that the law schools carried either a ‘deemed university’ or a ‘university’ status, which empowered them to grant their own degree and which was recognized by other institutions in terms of the University Grants Commission

    Five-year law programme

    Earlier law degrees were granted only to those candidates who had already completed their graduation and after three years of formal legal education. However, the admission to these autonomous law schools were only to those candidates who had completed Grade 12.

    Integrated degrees

    In these autonomous law schools, students studied for a law degree in integration with another degree of their choice. This allowed prospective advocates to have understanding of areas other than law. It also compensated for the lack of three years of formal education of other subjects that candidates in traditional three-year law degree programme carried. Initially the choice of second degree was confined to A. (Bachelor of Arts). Later, other choices were also offered like B.Sc. (Bachelor of Science), B.B.A. (Bachelor of Business Administration) and B.Com. (Bachelor of Commerce).

    National status of law schools

    These Schools are recognized by the university grants commission as “state universities” and are affiliated to the Bar Council of India. Each of these law schools were to be established under a specific legislation, to be passed by the State legislature of the Statedesirous of establishing a law school. In terms of these legislation, these law schools were required to establish and practice excellent and high standards, at par with other national level institutions imparting education in other wakes of social life. The conferment of national status also make admittance to these law schools at a prestigious choice and thus inviting meritorious students to get inclined to join legal profession.

    Intensive legal education

    These law schools were given autonomy to devise the imparting of the curriculum in a manner which would best suit the candidate’s ability to understand legal concepts and ability to appreciate various issues involved in legal setting and instil in them the merit and reasoning standards required for a high professional conduct. A standout feature of these institutions is that they are single subject universities where the main thrust of education is on law with other complementary social sciences.

    Involvement of legal luminaries

    To improve standards of legal education and ensure education imparted in these institutions met desired standards, the Bar Council of India involved various prestigious and talented individuals with these law schools. The most notable of these was the involvement of highly placed constitutional functionaries, such as the Chief Justice of India or the Chief Justice of various High Courts as the “Visitors” and often “Chancellors” of these law schools, which implied a constant involvement and supervision of elite figures of legal profession in India with these law schools.

    Frequently Asked Question

    Students of any stream can sit after their 10+2 exam, provided that they have passed with a 55% aggregate. It is not necessary that the results have been declared at the time of sitting for CLAT. But in a situation where you are unable to pass the boards but have cleared CLAT, you will not be able to join a National Law University.

    There are two formats of legal education. The traditional one espouses a three-year graduation, followed by a three-year degree in law. The National Law Schools, however, speak of a five–year integrated program, the most commonly awarded degree being B.A. LL.B. (Hons.).

    Absolutely. In fact, it is pretty interesting to note that over the years, a large number of law schools are reporting that the majority of students are girls. A safe residential environment and the opening up of numerous legal career options has made it a great option for girls.

    The fee is usually in the frequency of approximately a lakh rupees per annum, and differs from student to student. However, an education at National Law Universities shall allow you to earn the entire five years fees in a couple of months. Besides, there are numerous options of scholarships, grants and student loans. Every economic section of the society is visible in National Law Schools. Some of the national law schools are known for their philosophy that all a student needs to do is qualify and they will take care of the fees.

    You need to answer this question. Our experience indicates that the ratio of students who have just passed out and students who have dropped a year is 50:50 or thereabouts. CLAT is not a voluminous paper but one which requires consistent input. If you can draw a schedule, you can work and qualify for the paper by putting in a couple of hours every week.

    Legal education is just not about learning unlimited legal maxims and cases. In fact, reality is that a good legal education enables the cultivation of personal autonomy, intellectual independence and the development of critical life skills. The key attribute of a person pursuing legal career should be logical thinking as Law in itself is based on aptitude and reasoning.

    There are five sections in CLAT exam paper which are:
    • English including Comprehension.
    • Current affairs including General Knowledge.
    • Legal Reasoning.
    • Logical Reasoning.
    • Quantitative Techniques (Maths)

    The stress laying area for each student would differ. Each student will need to know his/her own strong and weak areas in order to take the test effectively. Once the student is clear with his/her strengths and weaknesses, he/she should opt for the stronger areas first and also should avoid the weaker areas considering the negative marking scheme in the CLAT paper. This will also help students in forming their own strategy. CLAT likes to throw surprises, leaving students bewildered in the examination halls. CLAT-2011, for example, had four RCs leaving out grammar and vocabulary questions, which are famously part of the paper otherwise. Thus, it's always better to go with an open mind, ready to field the googlies. Keeping that in mind the students who have not made themselves familiar with the online mode of examination will feel trouble in attempting the examination in a new mode. The major challenge lies in managing the time and getting a hang of the navigation system in this kind of examination.

    Make sure that the analysis of the tests that you have taken, is able to identify your strengths and weaknesses.

    The NLUs offer a total of 2,622 seats for integrated law programmes and 852 seats for LLM programmes. Apart from the NLUs there are CLAT affiliated colleges and universities that also offer admission to law courses through CLAT score.
