This college is a legal education hub.
Placements: Since the college is one of the young NLUs, the placements here are not as expected. However, the placement record is reasonable. The college doesn't reveal the official placement record. Internship placement cell is working hard to raise the placement percentage every year. The placement rate is improving every year. All the students who passed out from here were well settled, and I can affirm this without any doubt.
Infrastructure: You'll find the best infrastructure in this college. The library is well-equipped with Wi-Fi and other e-sources where a student can work with ease. Medical facilities are not much appreciable. Special attention is given for sports and games. The mess offers both the south Indian and north Indian cuisines in order to avoid the food issues since students join here from different parts of the country. Facilities like 24X7 electricity and hot water are available here. Regular attendance will be taken in the hostel, which speaks the disciplinary standards in the hostel.
Faculty: Faculty here are well experienced. Standards and quality of education are never compromised elements. However, some minor issues are common in every college. The course curriculum is prepared without considering practical difficulties. However, the present course is worthy of working upon. Each teacher uses their respective teaching methods which makes a student learn with joy.
Other: A number of committees have been constituted to organise different types of programs and competitions. The campus is surrounded by eastern ghats which offer healthy and beautiful sceneries. The campus is built in such a way that it helps students to tackle stress. Certain internal issues are common in every institution, but those are regularly solved with caution and care. The fee here is a bit high, but the education imparted here is worth the money spent.

Dissatisfied just because of the faculty.
Placements: At present, the scenario of placements to the students who had completed their degree in our college is not that good. Maybe, it will get better in future. Because at first, our college didn't have much exposure. It got exposure just after the division of Andhra state and when the new government and vice-chancellor came. So, hopefully, it would get better.
Infrastructure: One thing about our university that we can proudly say is in our university, the infrastructure is simply outstanding. Moot courts, library, digital classrooms, air-conditioned campus and what not, everything is just exceptional. The hostel rooms are also very nice. But, they are little congested. Food available in the canteen is pretty good. There are two types of canteens in our university, North Indian and South Indian. One must select either of the above. Games and sports are also much good.
Faculty: The faculty are also good. But, some people are really disgusting. They show the personal grudges in awarding the marks. So, this could be really risky for the students. But, the maximum of lecturers are really good. The student-faculty ratio is also good. They are surplus also. Oral and digital are the teaching methods used in our university.
Other: In our college, there is no big place for extracurricular activities.

It is good and evolving university with proper curriculum and exposure.
Placements: Decent placements are happening from past two years. As I am in the fourth year of my course, the placements of my batch are still awaited. My senior and super senior batches were placed in mid-range offices. Almost 70 to 80 percent of people, who have opted for placements drive, are placed predominantly with Thomson Reuters, Fox Mandal and a few litigation firms from Hyderabad and Bangalore.
Infrastructure: The university campus is very new and basic facilities like good library, and proper accommodation is already built. High-speed Wi-Fi ( in the library, mess and hostels), access to legal data providers like Manupatra, SCC and Hein Online, air-conditioned academic building have been provided to the students. Spots cell, guest house and admin block are almost built. The building of auditorium is about to start. Two different mess serve good food to the students and staff. The hostel rooms are perfect with installed security cameras. The hostels, being new, don't have any repairs. I only experienced the dearth of a proper auditorium.
Faculty: The faculty is on par, and in a way better than many national law universities. The teaching staff is a blend of senior and young teachers. Young teachers, being able to well-connect with the students. They tend to explain the concepts in a student-friendly manner. The teaching is mostly based on powerpoint presentations and other exercises. The internship breaks provide an opportunity for students to get exposed to the industry. The course curriculum is dynamic and is tuned to match with the industry expectations.
Other: The university hosts a regular national event in one or the other field. The societies of the university are highly active and competitive in hosting events. The hosting of events help the university students in gaining experience in organizing events and contacting with experts in the field of law.
