Review 2 suggests that very few firms visit the college for recruitment, but most students are inspired to pursue careers in the judiciary, IAS, IPS, state PCS-J, banking, or CLAT-PG. Review 3 mentions that the college is doing well in terms of placements, especially in the judiciary sector and that the trend is changing with more students opting for corporate life. Review 4 states that almost all students who sit for placements receive offers, with most receiving PPOs and that the college has a good track record in PCSJ selections. Finally, Review 5 notes that while the college has a great placement cell, the culture of the college focuses more on judiciary and government exam preparation, so if you're interested in a corporate career, you may want to consider other options.

Beauty in the City of Nawabs: RMLNLU.
Placements: Very less percentage, around 10 percent, were placed. The highest package is 15 LPA, and the lowest is 8 LPA. Khaitan, Tuli and Co., etc., are the top companies. Legal Associate is the top legal position which is offered. Internship that students land is quite less among the students.
Infrastructure: Infrastructure is decent for the college premises. The library and computer labs are well-equipped, and classrooms are teach-enabled and spacious. The facilities in the hostel are not up to the mark; the rooms are a little dilapidated, and the mess food is pathetic.
Faculty: Some of the teachers are good while others are below par, especially in their teaching methodology. The course curriculum is relevant for the industry standard and is good for seeking recruitment. The semesters are easy to crack owing to the repetitive nature of examinations.

Review of NLU Lucknow (RMLNLU) - Dr. Ram Manohar Lohiya National Law University.
Placements: Very few percentages were placed last year, and the highest was around 13 LPA. People are placed in networking only through individual connections. The college administration is lackluster in providing a good platform for placement companies to come and take students.
Infrastructure: The college has 2 spacious boys' hostels and 1 for girls' hostel, with boys' hostels having single rooms since the 2nd year. The college campus is beautiful and picturesque, with great buildings erected for the sake of student curriculum. The mess for boys is pathetic, according to Sharma ji.
Faculty: Some of the teachers are extremely helpful and approachable; however, the others are not so good in either their knowledge or their teaching style. Yes, the course curriculum is good, especially for government exams, and the difficulty in semester exams is very low.

Review of NLU Lucknow (RMLNLU) - Dr. Ram Manohar Lohiya National Law University.
Placements: I was from the COVID batch so I could not have the first two years of college experience, and after coming to college, it was overall a decent experience. Also, the environment of the hostel is very good. We had a great batch, no restrictions are there inside college hostel.
Infrastructure: Some of the teachers are very supportive and good but 25 percent of them have let down the college name. Also, the college culture here is regressing with time. I don't think it's going to be in the top 10 law colleges in the future. Lot of reforms are needed here.
Faculty: Some of the teachers are good, but some 30-40 percent are letting the college down; not so supportive they are. My experience was not good with some of them. Also, the examination pattern here is bad, what I personally feel. Also, no uniform or attendance is taken nowadays.
