Good things about the university based on your personal experience
- Prime location:
Delhi in itself is a hub of a lot of firms as well as big legal practitioners. Delhi serves as a huge locational advantage to the students especially the ones studying law.
- Supreme Court:
As the apex court of our country is located here in Delhi, it gives an added exposure to the law students.
- Reasonable college fee:
Being a government college, the fee structure of USLLS is not expensive unlike other law colleges and NLU’s that charge an exorbitant fee from their students.
- Excellent college environment:
The college is surrounded by a lot of greenery, sport facilities and open areas which give it quite a good living and studying experience to its students.
- Reasonable lecture timings:-
Unlike many NLUs and law colleges where the academic curriculum is pretty hectic with classes dragging on till 4:00 pm or 5:00 pm in the evening, the classes here in USLLS gets over by 1:00 pm or 2:00 pm thereby giving a law student enough time to explore new things apart from the bookish learning.
I personally consider it to be a big advantage for a field like law.
- Excellent senior-junior dynamics:
Most of the clubs, extra curriculars and other events are student run thus giving an ample opportunity to interact with seniors. This student oriented system gives a lot of edge when it comes to learning from their experiences.
- We are even provided with a personal mentor who is generally a senior from the later years of college.
- Excellent extra-curriculars: The college is really active when it comes to extra curricular-activities apart from academics. Activities like mooting, debating, ADR as well as other cultural activities such as music, dance, drama and events related to heritage are organized.
The college has several clubs for all such activities such as Srijan, Abhivyakti, Swarek Bharat Shreshth Bharat club , Constitution club etc.
- Large alumni base:
As the college was inaugurated in 2001 it is really old and has a huge alumni base. This helps the students to connect with their seniors and alumina who are now associates and partners in big law firms and are established litigants and are the very best in their fields.
Alumni base plays a huge role in the success of a law school and its students.
Bad things about the university based on your personal experience
The college needs a little improvement when it comes to administrative efficiency. The administration is sometimes laid back which hinders the overall development of the institution.
Also, the achievements of the students of the college needs to be popularized so that the budding talent gets recognition!
How’s the faculty?
Faculty is overall nice and there is no such specific issue to be highlighted. Teachers take classes regularly apart from a selected 1 or 2.

How’s the infrastructure? Mention some of the things that exist.
The infrastructure is USLLS is really nice and maintained. There is a lot of greenery around and facilities like libraries, washrooms and overall campus is well maintained with special attention given to neatness.
The classrooms could have been a little better though. However, overall it’s a good experience.

How’s your hostel experience?
As I have not visited, owing to the pandemic, but as per the collected Information, the hostels are good with a single occupancy room for everybody from the 1st year itself.
Hostels are allotted looking at the distance of the residence of the student from the college.
The hostels are neat and clean with a single bed, study table and cupboard in each room. Washrooms have to be shared. There are 2 hostels for girls and 2 hostels for boys.

How are your peers?
The peer group here is nice with a lot of healthy competition amongst the batchmates. Overall it’s a good vibe.
The only thing that can be a downside is as the college has 85% Delhi domicile reservation – the diversity in the crowd is missing. Still then, overall it’s a nice experience.

How are the placements in your college?
The placement and internship cell of our college has recently become active after some new student coordinators in the cell.
The placements here are not too great though the cell is pushing hard for internships, I guess it will take some time and will surely be outstanding in the years to come.
Apart from this, students are still getting placed at firms like Khaitan, Trilegal, AZB and other big law firms by using Delhi as a location factor to their advantage.
There is a mixed culture including budding litigants, mediators and judges. There is also a decent culture of research and pursuing masters.
Though the college placement status is not great but the students are still doing really good in the mainstream. The alumni base also has a major role to play in this.

How are the co-curriculars in your college?
The co-curriculars here are simply bang on including almost every sport, music, art, dance, drama, literature and what not!
The efforts of the students in administrating these committees and clubs are excellent.

What are some of the things you’d advise a 1st year aspirant who enters your college?
I know every student wanting to pursue law aims of tier 1 NLUs but due to the lack of seats in those institutions some students do feel disheartened like I felt after my CLAT results were declared but that’s surely not the end of the road.
You still have equal chances to have a successful career in law. USLLS as an institution provides you ample opportunity and scope to lead in the field. So make the best choice and enjoy your law school experience!
