Experience yourself in LJD.
Placements: The college doesn't provide placement as such, but does provide the firm associated with the college and helps in finding new opportunities in the law field by providing unfilled knowledge and will provide with new senior lawyers to make a path of our own.
Infrastructure: The infrastructure of the college is beyond words. The main campus located in the outskirts of Falta has an impressive view of nature, and the new college in the outskirts of Tollygunge holds another view within the area. It's built with proper moot courts, library, canteen facility, as well as a conference room.
Faculty: The faculty members of my term were quite helpful when it comes to studies and helped us in every field necessary and guided with proper notes and questions in hand before exams, and were cooperative when anything was needed in terms of subject or any other opinion; they would welcome with open hands and solve our doubts.
Other: It's a very memorable batch; we were the 2nd batch of the college. As it was very new, it was good to SEE the college build up with new students every year, and the responsibility of the admin increased day by day. It was all in all wonderful.

The University of Calcutta is a great University.
Placements: In our University, mostly 80 to 92% of students have been placed. The recruitment companies in our University are: the Allahabad Bank, the Bank of Baroda, etc. Some of these students also get jobs in schools and colleges. But of course, before working in all these places, we were sent for internships.
Infrastructure: Our University is fully filled with various activities. There is a football ground, a hockey ground, a tennis ground, and many more. Our University has air-conditioned classrooms and free access to the internet. Our lab and library are very well-equipped. Our canteen is very clean, and the food quality is very hygienic.
Faculty: University faculty are very helpful. When we are unable to understand any subject, the faculty come and explain everything to us in a good way. That way, we do not have any trouble later. Their teaching style is phenomenal. At the end of their teaching, we have no difficulty in giving the final exam. We all pass well.

This college needs a lot of improvement in its infrastructure and placement process.
Placements: Asutosh college does not have a proper placement cell. There is a placement team who sometimes organizes a few job fair, and a handful of students manage to get placement offers. But, the packages are not that great. The average package was 2 LPA while the highest package was 3.5 LPA.
Infrastructure: The infrastructure of the campus of Asutosh College is very old and dusty. The classrooms are very small as compared to the number of students in our batch. We have a few labs but most of the equipments are old. We do have a few sporting facilities in our college campus like cricket, football and volleyball.
Faculty: The teachers and other faculty members of Asutosh College are to some extent good. They have good knowledge about their subjects and also cover the syllabus on time. The course curriculum is also good and covers all the latest trends. The semester exams are a bit difficult, and you need to follow the classes properly to score good marks.
