I suggest you keep checking the official website of Allahabad University for updates on LLB admissions and cutoff marks for the current academic year.

Absolutely Dissatisfied Because of the Faculty.
Placements: Students with a CGPA of 7 and above were placed in my course. Placement is not offered by my college. Regarding internships, there is a high court in my city where students from my college can intern under a senior advocate. You must get permission from the coordinator before applying for an internship.
Infrastructure: The infrastructure is not very good, but you will receive good guidance regarding your career. The library provides a good environment for students to read and think. Hostels offer a healthy and friendly environment for both new and old students. Sports and NCC members are well guided and supported by the staff.
Faculty: The teachers are helpful, knowledgeable, and very supportive. This is a very old profession with a wide scope for the future. Students who are confused about their career options may consider applying to this course. The difficulty level of semester exams is moderate—easy enough to gain knowledge and experience, and but hard enough to prepare you for future plans.
Other: I was raised in a very legal and highly disciplined family, which influenced my decision to choose this course for my career. In the future, I plan to prepare for the judiciary. Events and fests are not highly prioritised here, but scholarships and extracurricular activities are well supported.

My honest review on CMP law faculty.
Placements: There are no placements or internships provided by the college in my course. The students have to do internship from their own outside the college. No placements, therefore, no package. Students can apply for internship in various firms, companies, etc. In fact, they can do it directly from the Allahabad High Court.
Infrastructure: There is no hostel at this college as it is a constituent college but the main campus of Allahabad University has one. The facilities and infrastructure of this college are not so good. There is only one library where you cannot go and take a book by yourself; instead, you have to tell them the name of the book and they will provide it to you. There is no Wi-Fi facility on campus. No labs are there. Classrooms are also not well maintained. But yes, there is a moot court.
Faculty: The teaching faculty is good. They are all experienced as well as knowledgeable, as they are all qualified NET/JRF. The teachers are helpful as they try to clear up every doubt of the students. The semester exams are not so difficult; instead, you can say they are easy, as a moderate child can also attempt them easily.
Other: I chose this course because my dream is to become a judge. I want to crack the judiciary and the syllabus of this college fits for this. There are not so many events but every week competitions are held in which anyone can participate and enhance their personality. College personally didn't provide any scholarships, but of course our government provides scholarships in which you can easily get benefits named "UP SCHOLARSHIP."

Review of Wing Christian College.
Placements: Our college doesn't give placement in any course as it is not an engineering college; our college only provides us with a with a degree. No recruiting company recruits students from Wing Christian College; they only provide us with degrees, and no placement is done here so this college is only for those who want to get a degree.
Infrastructure: College infrastructure is very unique its like you are entering a British museum, as there have been no changes made in its infrastructure since it was made so it makes you remember old Indian culture and Indian heritage, as well as being an autonomous Christian college.
Faculty: Teacher and helpful and very much qualified and knowledgeable as our college conducts exams of the teachers who are recruited but the semester exams time is so short and very tough and the syllabus is really to tough to finish. They also push our limits in contesting exams as they take very little time in conducting exams !
Other: I chose this course because I want to make a career in mathematics. Also, our college doesn't organize any fests, but the campus is clean and pure with lots of greenery.

CMP LAW FACULTY Honest review.
Placements: There is not any placement from college. And there are not any internship offers to students. I think it is showing a bad condition of the college. But here is top faculty for teaching us, so many students get selected in many government exams like PCS J and many more.
Infrastructure: Facilities are not so good but good. Wi-Fi is not available for students. Classrooms are like old times with the same desks and benches, and not proper lighting. The library is available but only for issuing books. There is no reading hall. There is a canteen which is always closed.
Faculty: Faculty is top quality. Every professor has great potential and experience. They teach us well. Exams are moderate for students because everything is already taught. Every professor is so much experienced and their teaching style is awesome.
Other: Events and fests are organised very well. But the campus is not so good.

Faculty: The faculty members were good. They are very supportive and hardworking. They encourage the students to study and motivate them for their future. They provide guidance tools for the students’ better future. The semester exams were tough and the passing ratio is very low. About 30 percent of the students were facing backlogs in the exams.
