The hostel rooms are clean. The canteen is available in addition to the Nescafe and Atrium. The food served in the canteen is good. Medical facilities are available to students.

    Review of Chanakya National Law University.
    Placements: The batch of 2018 had just one placement drive, and since then, it's always been 1 or 2 or none. The faculty coordinator or the administration of the university doesn't care much about placements, and their main focus of theirs is on judiciary. So, if you're coming to this university, don't think about getting placed.
    Infrastructure: The hostel rooms are pretty nice compared to other NLUs and colleges in general. The food is inconsistent, though. There's a gym and sports facilities. The hostel has two badminton courts in-built. In terms of infrastructure other than that of the hostel, the academic blocks are pretty good with AC in each room, but there's a lack of a proper moot court hall.
    Faculty: The faculty members are not very helpful, nor do they have management skills when it comes to handling the class. But the exams are really tough, and the marking schemes are also very strict. There's only a handful of permanent faculty who do not help the college with its reputation.

    Other: Our college celebrates an annual fest called Jeevatva. It is celebrated for one week. I chose B.A. LL.B. because I had already learned the fundamental of law during my first year, which was part of my board exams.

    Chanakya National Law University is the Judges' Factory.
    Placements: The placements at CNLU are very poor to say the least. Hardly, 2-3 placements take place. Besides, on campus placement, around 10-15 students get PPO from law firms, research organisations, etc. CNLU is known as the Judges' Factory because of the rate of students appear and clear the judicial services exam of various states.
    Infrastructure: The college is well-equipped with Wi-Fi, library, all classrooms are air-conditioned but we still lack a good computer lab at our college. The college is spreading across 18 acres (data from CNLU's official website) which has greenery all around. There is a separate mess for boys' and girls' hostels in their respective hostels.
    Faculty: Faculty members are mixed in our college. Some are very good and knowledgeable and their mode of delivery is good. Others are poor with knowledge and have poorer delivery. However, we still lack good faculty in our college. This is the plight of almost all the colleges hence not a new for us to face.
