Good things about the University based on your personal experience

There are a lot of good things about college. I will try to mention it in points.

To satisfy myself I did my own research, after-all I had to be here for the next 5-years.

Because I believed that I cannot do well until I feel good about the place where I am. Hence, I contacted many seniors and the alumni of DSNLU.

And when I got to know about them, I got that contentment of getting best from where I am.

And one of the thing I found was that it’s the alumni cell of the university which makes a difference.

At some universities it is very active and at some universities it is not that active. Again, there’s a lot of factors behind all this. So, without any further a do, I will mention my points:

1.The college is growing day by day as we see the difference in its working and the effort put by the authority to do best at their ends.

It gives a sense of satisfaction when you see everyone putting effort to make best out of everything.

2. The college culture is also very nice. There’s no senior – junior as such.

Even most of the seniors prefer to be called by their name.

They are very amicable. I also have good batchmates, who are very helpful.

3. The college will help at every step. As I have seen they respond to you as early as possible.

And in case you are facing any issues, they try to resolve it at the earliest.

4. The college culture is such that they will help you in building your confidence and other personal skills.

5. The interaction with the crowd from different places, increases the exposure and connections.

Bad things about the University based on your personal experience

The few things which you may not like about law school is that there’s a lot of project work followed by moots, research papers and other competitions.

Every month you will be busy with at least some task.

But, it is rightly said, something which is bad to everyone is not bad to anyone. So, initially you may feel this pressure because when you get into law school, we are introduced to a whole new culture.

So, getting accustomed to it takes some time and once you get into the habit of doing it, everything will be manageable.

At the end of the day, you will see the improvement in your writing and researching skills because this is what we were doing while preparing our projects and research papers.

Our academics department is very understanding as they grant us extension whenever we really required it, given that we have the genuine reason for the same.

Apart from this, till now, I haven’t faced any difficulty. And even talked to so many seniors as well and didn’t find any big reason as such.

How’s the faculty?

Faculties are overall decent. Like, initially I faced some problems due to the change in accent.

But later on, I was able to follow them. Some of the professors are very much knowledgeable and the time and dedication they showed towards the students is commendable.

Faculties are very understanding and very approachable whenever you need them. And you can keep your problem in-front of them without any effort.

How’s the infrastructure? Mention some of the things that exist.

I haven’t gone to the university yet. But, whatever I got to know from my seniors and the students who live nearby the university, they say the university campus is very beautiful.

The scenic beauty will attract you very much. And still some parts of it is under construction. And few of the things has been recently added.

The campus is large and surrounded with hills, which gives it an amazing look.

How’s your hostel experience?

Due to the pandemic, I haven’t gone to hostel yet.

But I asked about it from the seniors. I got to learn that the hostels are really decent.

Few things we need to take with us are quilt, mattress, utensils (if for personal use), etc.

All rooms are two seaters.

How are your peers?

My peers are really good. As all of us have prepared for entrance examinations, the crowd is very competitive.

Students are good in studies.

Also, there are various students who get a rank, where they could easily head to the top 5-6, but just because they wanted to stay nearby their hometown, they chose DSNLU.

So, the competition is good. Also, the first thing when I entered law school, is that you have a lot of questions in your mind regarding how to approach for anything, internships and all.

You have various doubts. And you want somebody to show you some direction. Yeah! you guessed rightly, I am talking about seniors.

We have amazing seniors. They are really helpful. There were some seniors who sat with me till late at night accompanying me for my novice moot court competition.

Also, I talked to them when I felt stressed.

Till now, I got whatever help I required. Also, if you are the one who’s putting extra effort, other person will surely love to help you.

How are the placements in your college?

Placement here is improving gradually.

And some of the alumni to whom I interacted they were in some of the top tier law firms or are doing LLM from a foreign university.

So, students did go to top tier firms for internships and are working there.

I had came to know about few of our alumnus who are legal consultants in one of the top IIT and doing very great.

Our Alumni cell is now working very actively to keep contact with the pass out students.

Recently, DSNLU’s alumni cell took one initiative where we made students of DSNLU get in touch with their seniors pursuing LLM from abroad.

How are the co-curriculars in your college?

The debate and mooting culture at DSNLU is very nice.

We have some of the great debaters who had gone for international debate and won it.

There are seniors who went for various international moots like William C and won it.

Various activities are announced frequently. And several open challenges and national level quizzes are organized.

Like last year in October a national level IPR quiz competition was organized where students from all over India participated.

DSNLU has various committees and societies, which work very actively. Recently, few more societies namely:

– Society for paper publications, Center for Law and Literature, Center for Science and technology, Sports Law Journal [name may differ as few considerations are going on].

CIPR committee of DSNLU has been recently allotted a project by the Ministry of Law and Justice.

Adding to that it got one GI registration done of one dish (Atreyapuram Pootharekulu) of Andhra Pradesh and is working on another GI projects as well.

What are some of the things you’d advise to a 1st year aspirant who enters your college?

Lastly I would like to give someone who enters into DSNLU, this: 

This is my personal opinion. But still I would like to mention.

One important lesson which I got is that sometimes not getting what you eagerly want is the best thing that can ever happen to you. I will substantiate it with example.

I got into DSNLU and there was in my mind that I have to work hard in order to compete with my peers who are there in top NLUs, so till now I’m in a habit of going after my goal and hungry for getting more better, despite sufficient opportunities are provided by the university itself.

I am mentioning this because when I spoke to some of my friends who are in NLSIU or NALSAR, I have noticed they are very relaxed and there are few who didn’t do anything in their first year and are struggling to maintain their grades in 2nd year.

These are those students whom I really admired for getting into the top university. But, lastly I got an understanding that no matter where you are its your choice what you want to do with the available resources and where you want to ultimately end up.

And we get where we put our effort into. Now I understand this very fairly, so now I am not bothered by anything regarding college ranking or placement because I believe if I work for it, I will get it.

I gave my example because I want, currently whosoever is reading to get better and relate it to themselves.

So, don’t worry when you didn’t get what you really wanted because sometimes you learn far more when you don’t get what you truly want than you get what you want.

One’s motto should be growth and it can be done at any university immaterial of it being top most or bottom most law school. Because, everything is futile if you don’t put any effort.
