Looking at downtrodden condition of new NLUs, I feel that I am in a better position.
1. Good returns for less fees
One of the best thing being at KLE’S Law College, Bangalore is less fees and food returns. Those who Joined in year 2010 are completing their course and have not even spent Rs 2 lacs; this means the average fee was almost 30-32k P.A !
And those who have recently joined the course even, they too will complete their degree by spending almost 3.50 lacks.
Second privilege what we get is that, our college is situated at Bangalore that also at heart of city and, of course, the great NLSIU is also at Bangalore.
Some of the faculty members of NLS are the Ex- Faculty members of KLE, so this college get many opportunities of guest lectures from NLS.
3. The University funds U
Third, best thing about KLE is that we get 100% reimbursement for expenses occurring at the time Moot Courts and other types competition, irrespective of whether a student wins the competition or not.
I think there are very less number of law colleges in India which provides full reimbursement .
4. The placements are improving
Now, this college is also improving its placements cell, although our seniors have secured some placements in insurance companies, litigation firms & LPOs, but now college is also providing internships in leading firms and esteemed organisations, and there are better chances of placements in coming future.
5. Library and Faculty
Coming to other aspects, like faculty, Library & Research Database materials, I can say that some of the faculty members are really nice, and posses very good knowledge and rest are satisfactory. Though some of them are not up to the mark.
The library of KLE is really one of the biggest law library at Bangalore after NLS , having books related to all major streams of Law and also have access to nearly 13 Law Journals and some legal magazines as well as General Knowledge & Political magazines.
E-library is also good having access to all sort of E-Journals, and E-Database like, SCC online, Manupatra , Law Super, WESTLAW etc.
6. New Campus of KLE
The only drawback with KLE’s Law College is its infrastructure because college runs in a joint campus of KLE Society, but by 2016 K.L.E Law College is shifting to a new independent campus at Nagarbhavi, close to NLSIU.
So it can be said that Joining KLE is not a bad idea for those who don’t get place in top NLU’s.
