Our college is good because the track to improvement is always open.
Placements: Our college had good placement records for both the pre and post-Covid eras. The salary package offered was 10 LPA to 25 LPA and the average salary package offered was 15 LPA. The thing that brings it down from 5 to 4 stars is the placement percentage. Only 30 to 40 students out of 180 were placed. That is not something to be disheartened about. The reason for this was that many students chose the judiciary and litigation, and internships provided a significant number of what are now secure PPOs.
Infrastructure: The infrastructure of HNLU, although improving, was one of its downsides. Our hostels and academic buildings were not decently maintained. It's rather that HNLU had the largest campus out of all NLUs (65 acres), and approximately 60 to 70% of that area remains unused to date. Apart from this fact, the infrastructure was decent enough, and although the hostels were not good, a decent level of hygiene was maintained. The library was undoubtedly one of the best in the NLU system, with a ground floor filled with an excellent collection of books and two floors of air-conditioned reading halls. Our classrooms were well-lit and air-conditioned, but at the same time, they were a little compact for 60 students in a section. In the hostel, you get a single room with shared balconies throughout your 5-year course, which is not offered in almost all of the NLUs. The room, though small, would prove to be enough for you. The hostel washrooms were not decently maintained, but the major reason for that was the students using them and not the hostel staff. The mess was air-conditioned, bright, and spacious. The mess hall was top-notch, and hygiene was well-maintained.
Faculty: Our faculty members and curriculum were not good. Some faculty members put in a lot of effort to teach you. A large number of professors did the bare minimum to cover the course somehow. The selection of optional subjects and the scheduling of courses by semester were not what they should have been. The course curriculum was not designed in a way that would provide optimum benefit to students. The assessment method was very tiring and repetitive when it came to internal assessments.

Review of HNLU Raipur - Hidayatullah National Law University.
Placements: Your hard work gets you a good placement. Students collect their own achievements. The highest placement package for the 2020 batch was about 18 LPA.
Infrastructure: You won't ever regret your decision to choose this college for any infrastructure issue, mess, or food issue. That food is not less than any good restaurant food. First-year hostel rooms are huge, and the hostel is spacious. From the second to the fifth year, the rooms are quite small, but there are no complaints about the infrastructure. Wi-Fi is available all the time. It doesn't work sometimes, but the problem gets resolved quickly. All the lecture halls have AC. HNLU's campus is on the outskirts of the city, so to compensate for that, we have a utility center, a food corner type, which wasn't open due to COVID protocols, and you can also order things at the mess. They have that facility.
Faculty: Faculty members are the best. If you concentrate in class, studying for one week before exams is enough. In HNLU, students have a habit of getting things molded according to their own preferences by way of protest and all. The university in itself isn't punctual regarding its work.

Our college offers graduation, post graduation, and doctoral courses in law.
Placements: Huge placements are provided in our college. Around 78 students get placed in our course. The highest salary package offered is 12 LPA and the lowest salary package is 3.5 LPA. Top recruiting companies are AZB and Partners, ICICI Bank, Wadia Handy, S&R Associate, Induslaw, Khaitan, etc.
Infrastructure: Our college has well-equipped modern facilities and amenities to support the academic and extracurricular activities of the students. It houses a well-stocked library, computer labs, moot court halls, sports facilities, hostels, gyms, and a cafeteria. It has a utility center, stationery shops, a fruit shop, a coffee house, a medical center, and food and beverages. Classrooms have air-conditioners and projectors. Our campus is huge, with a large cricket ground, a lakeside view with sitting arrangements, and many places to hang out with friends.
Faculty: Faculty members in our college are experienced and dedicated to providing quality education to students. Some of them encourage students to engage in legal research, moot court competitions, seminars, and workshops. The course curriculum is relevant, but students are not ready to face it because of the poor teaching of some faculty members. Semester exams are comprehensive so students have to study well.
Other: Many things should be improved on campus. The library is open from 5 PM to 12 AM. It should be open 24 hours. Sometimes extra classes are conducted till 5:30 PM. Optional classes are conducted till 5 PM for 4th and 5th-year students. Hostel in timing is 10:30 PM for girls but boys are allowed 24 hours. Subject preference for the 5th year is not good so they should give an option for students to choose the honors subjects. Fests are not organised in our college after the pandemic but the upcoming batch might get the fest. Our college was famous for its fests. Scholarships are provided to SC, ST, and OBC students by the central and state governments.

LL. M. from HNLU: A journey with thrill.
Placements: Mainly, the students who get placed are from UG course but the creamy layer (most intellectual) students get placed from PG. As I'm a newcomer, I do not have exact information regarding the salaries so I prefer not mentioning the same. Banks, Corporate law firms, PSUs and various Companies hire students as Law officers, researchers, and sometimes for litigation as well. Students of LL. M. are not required to do an internship, but they need to submit their research report (dissertation) for which students need practical efforts with theoretical knowledge.
Infrastructure: Hostel and mess facilities: Students are provided double occupancy rooms in the hostel. But, if anyone is not comfortable with the same they can request the management for the single occupancy room paying some extra charges. The hostel rooms have not attached washroom. The common washroom is there for all, that is clean and hygienic and sufficient in numbers. Remember, the hotel is mandatory for all as it is a residential university. There are a separate hostel and mess for boys and girls. This time, the quality of food is quite satisfactory (one can survive eating that). Students pay about 34000 rupees for the mess per annum in which they provide for 4 meals per day, that is breakfast, lunch, evening snacks and dinner. Administrative and Academic Building: The common administrative and Academic building is there which is identical to the parliament of India. There are some hybrid classrooms and some normal classrooms. All the classrooms have a step sitting system and those are fully air-conditioned. Medical facilities: As University takes 4000 rupees as medical fees, the doctor comes time to time within the campus. The University has an Ambulance for an emergency. Few common medicines are available in the hostel's first aid box. Sports and gymnasium: within the campus, there is a cricket ground, football ground, tennis court, volleyball court, badminton court, gymnasium separate for boys and girls etc.
Faculty: Most of the teachers are posted as an assistant professor and associate professor. Most of the teachers are helping and well qualified. They very politely coordinate with the students in the classroom so that one can easily raise a question before them and hence the classes are always interactive. Here the LL. M. course is of one year which is further divided into 3 trimesters. So the students of LL. M. have to rush towards the library from very starting. 75% attendance is must, there is no other alternative for the same.
Other: The University provides all kind of opportunities. One can choose by themselves in whichever way they wanna move.
