A great campus life at a nice location.

Placements: When I spoke to my seniors about their placements, it seems about 90-95% of students got placed, the remaining 5% are people who haven't sat for placements. They opted other options like government exams. The internships that we get are firm internships like SAM, CAM, Trilegal, AZB, or litigation internships.

Infrastructure: In our college, the academic block is air-conditioned well. The Wi-Fi in the previous month hasn't been working well. The classrooms are very well-equipped and are spacious. The mess food is...

It is the best law college in WB, ranked at 4th in the country for a reason.

Placements: There were 100% placements in the previous year for the batch of 2021. Top companies like Khaitan and Co., come for recruitment. Tier 1, tier 2, and tier 3 law firms have also come for hiring. The highest salary package received was 60 LPA for the batch of 2021.

Infrastructure: The library is well stocked and has books and materials for all courses of law. It also gives access to various famous online libraries like hein online, SSC India Kanoon, and Westlaw amongst others. Classrooms are well ventilated, have a...

The crowd and campus life are great, but the fee is high.

Placements: The placement record of our college is the best among all law schools in the country, with almost 100% placements every year since 2008 (when the third batch graduated). Most of the students (around 60% of those who are interested) got placed in one of the seven tier-1 law firms of the country which pay upward of 15 LPA (and increases later on). Others get recruited by other law firms and companies. It can safely be said that the average salary of an NUJS graduate is around 9-10 LPA. Overall, NU...

It provides good placements and an enriching college life.

Placements: The college had 100% placement records for the past few years. The average package ranged between 14-18 LPA by national law firms and 46-48 LPA by international law firms. The top recruiting companies are Trilegal, Khaitan & Co., SAM, CAM and other law firms.

Infrastructure: The facilities available are adequate. There is an extensive online library. In addition, the mess is student-managed and provides good food. Students have access to Sports Authority of India (SAI) facilities for sports and games. There is a...

A great platform - WBNUJS.

Placements: The placements at my college have been extremely good this year. While we got more than 50 job offers from Tier I law firms, tier 2 law firms, Banks and boutique firms have also come where we have got placements. Figures for placement have not yet finalized. Therefore a concrete number cannot be given. For the year 2018, there has been 100% placement. Approximately 100 people SAT for the placements and all they got jobs.

A mix of good and average facilities.

Placements: A recruitment committee that is comprised entirely of students of the outgoing batch, takes care of placements. They are in charge of liaising with law firms, companies and other organisations, setting up interviews etc. Faculty members or the college administration have no role to play therein. Our batch saw about 70-75% students being placed while our immediate senior batch saw about 60% students being placed. In our batch, the salaries ranged between INR 3,60,000 per annum to about INR 12,00,...

You can completely meet the expectations if you are in this university.

Placements: The placements are yet to happen, and I'm confident of securing a job. Looking at the previous records, all the students who opted for placements have secured a job. All the reputed law firms from across the country as well as from foreign countries come for that purpose. The average salary package is in between 12-18 lacs per annum. Also, the internships are easily available through the university.

This University is really great as it serves the most important function, imparting life skills.

Placements: My college boasts of 100% placement. The highest salary package is around 50 Lacs and the lowest is 6 Lacs. The average is between 10-12 Lacs. We have a Recruitment and Placement Committee that coordinates the process. It is very useful as it helps a lot in bagging internships in the top law firms and also helps secure a good job.

Infrastructure: The overall infrastructure isn't very good. We do have wi-fi, recreation room for indoor sports (equipped with a PS4) and digital classrooms but our university playground is very small in area. The quality of food in the canteen is decent and the hostel rooms are not upto the mark. Specially, for the 1st years 3 people are made to accommodate in a double occupancy room which leads to a space crunch and a lot of problems. However, we have an air-conditioned mess in the hostel. The food may not be...

NUJS has good course structure. But it lacks infrastructure, and some faculty can be improved.

Placements: In the previous year, that is the batch of 2017; there were 100% placements of the students who decided to opt for on-campus placements on day zero, or through PPOs (pre-placement offers). A small majority also opted for litigation under some senior lawyers to enter the practice. The placement trend at NUJS has been on the up over the years, and top law firms such as Khaitan, Luthra, SAM, CAM, AZB regularly hire a large chunk of students during campus placements. At the top law firms, the averag...
