Full Name of your Law School

Damodaram Sanjivayya National Law University, DSNLU, Visakhapatnam.

Which semester are you in


Faculty and Academics

Class starts at 9 am with duration of an hour in each class, in total we have five classes with a lunch break of 1:15 hour and classes get over at 3:30 PM.

Curriculum is comprehensive where in your first year you deal with the B.A. subjects along with it one gets to learn the basics of law, making it easy for a novice to get into the groove of law school and Second year on-wards you are introduced to law subjects.

Student Culture and Activities

Student Culture in DSNLU is Vibrant with various society existing and conducting competition through out the year.

Chief activities being Novice and Intra Moot court competition along with a National event called DSNMC which has seen participation from all over the country and proved to be a grand success over the years.

Then comes everyone’s favorite Intra Varsity Asian Parliamentary Debate Competition called ‘VAKTA’ which sees participation from almost all the students of the university and an event worth attending.

Apart from this we have societies in college looking after all these events like Moot and Advocacy society (MAS), Society of Literature and Debate (SOLID), Career and Placement Society (CAPS), Legal Aid cell, SANCTUS and many more.


The temporary campus of DSNLU is located in a residential area called MVP colony sector 11 nearby Task force.


Talking about placement the CAPS has started functioning this year on-wards and is expected to shape the career graph of students.

Administration and Fees

Administration in DSNLU is student friendly and easily approachable if needed.

But all is not well in this fairyland with politics included and so it’s more like survival of the fittest.

Fees structure of DSNLU at present is Rs.1,55,000 (Excluding Hostel and mess charges).

Other things

Don’t judge this college based on its face value as without a proper infrastructure the college has done good and gives one ample opportunity to grow and outshine.

As such woes are only momentary and shall vanish once we shift to our permanent campus.

Tell us about the infrastructure of your college

The college is running in a Five storeyed building on a temporary basis,we shall be shifting to our campus in the year 2016 (Expected).

With students living in University recognised Hostels or having the liberty to live in flat (Perks of being in DSNLU :P)

Best things about your law school

Best thing about our law school is that one gets ample opportunity to grow. Be it co-curricular activities or academics.

Since it is growing from the scratch one gets to be a part of the decision making process and opportunities where you get to be a part of it and with it one gets to understand the intricacies of a law school.

Worst things about your law school

The location perhaps with food being a major issue and lack of good cafeterias or food joints adds to your woes and lack of proper infrastructure has been an issue since the beginning with a rather small library with limited books and limited capacity.
