Lawctopus had published a blog post ‘8 Reasons Not to Join NLU Assam’ here on May 22, 2014.

This is a reader’s blog in response to that post.

A lot of water has flown under the bridge. The University is no longer NLUJAA, it’s just NLUA, the words Judicial Academy have been removed from the Act. And here are the 8 reasons why you should join NLU Assam.

1. The university certainly has more than just one professor

Since the departure of Prof. Gurjeet Singh and arrival of Prof. Vijendra Kumar (Himself an authority on Family laws, don’t believe me, just google his name) lot has changed, Prof. Yugal Kishore is one of well known and highly regarded authority in the country when it comes to Environmental Laws.

As a result of Prof. Kumar’s arrival, who is not leaving anytime soon, the university has come in the notice and under the guidance of some of the most respected and reputated names related to legal education in the country (Read Prof. Faizan Mustafa, Prof. R. Venkata Rao, Prof. Paramjit S. Jaswal, etc.)

2. One of the highest number of Permanent Faculty members, amongst all National Law Universities

Open the university website and you will notice the entire list of faculty members, who are working day in, day out for taking this university to the place it rightfully deserves, the university boasts of one of the highest number of permanent faculty members on its board, majority of them are pass outs from different National Law Universities themselves, and almost everyone would agree that a board of permanent warriors is always greater that a horde of temporary mercenaries (the tradition that many of the so called upper National Law Universities follow by recruiting faculty on contract basis).

3. The facilities are something that are good, if not luxurious

All the classroom or for that sake every room of the university’s present campus is Air- Conditioned something that not many NLUs can boast of, every classroom, the common room, the library a good number of Air conditioners are placed everywhere to make the university, an ideal place to study and develop ideas.

The library though small, boasts of quite an excellent and well maintained collection of volumes, books, magazines, study material, novels, non-fiction, at least a collection which would take years to digest for a single person when it comes to his/her favourite readings.

Though, Sports facilities are something that the university still struggles with, but even then a nice sporting culture is developing in the university, with games like TT, Volley ball, Badminton, Carrom, Chess, Football, Cricket with many a games being played within the university premises and others being played within the institutions that the university has collaborated with, and the results are quite evident with the university teams performing well in the sports fest of other institution.

4. The excellent student culture that the university is developing

Until last year the Student Bar Council was nowhere to be seen in the university, but with the beginning of the new academic year in 2015, an elected student bar council (popularly the SBC) was constituted by the University for Better understanding between the university administration and the students.

After the creation of the SBC many of the individual committee of the university showed remarkable progress with their working.

5. The Administration

Well, on this part I would like to say the administration is not the friendliest administrative system ever to be found but then, when is it so?

No, university can claim that its administration serves everything to them on the platter. But then the administration here is understanding or if not so, then at least ready to listen to its students patiently, have a talk with the registrar and who knows, you may apparently find him the most polite person ever.

6. The lenient and helpful nature of the faculty

Yes, you read it correct, faculty here is helpful to the students.

Go to any other NLU and you may find that strict measures are taken when a project submission is not done on time or a student can’t fulfil the 75% attendance deadline, but here the faculty members personally listen to your problems and then themselves suggest a proper solution to your problem be it extension over the submission dates or the academic leaves that make up for the attendance, NLU Assam has one of the most student friendly faculty amongst all NLUs.

7. The No fine culture

Though disciplinary actions are taken against the students, who don’t abide by the rules and regulations of the university, but the highly defamatory fine culture is nowhere to be seen, at least I have not encountered a single guy or girl who has paid an exorbitant fine of Rs. 25,000 or Rs. 60,000, though show cause notices are given to students (That are printed using the college funds, no student is asked to pay for them) who show serious misconduct and lawlessness in the university premises.

8. Students are shifting to NLUA

Many of the students are deciding to stay at the university and make it a better place, students are working to add stars to the name of this university, students are leaving seats at ILS and GLC Mumbai to study here, seats at GNLU or NLUO or NUSRL or DSNLU or TNNLS are being dropped to study at this place.

  1. See dear saddists what Prof VK has done in the univeristy, none of the VC as on today can do let it be for the academic development or administration. Prof VK has given to the unviersity which none of the VC can repay. What do students want to get knowledge and way for their career, he has given the permanent faculty of about 28 and where in non of the NLU has this much big strength of professors of Law. Visionary VC has given the University and NE region to develop 18 research centres out of 4-5 centres are operational and due to space scarcity rest could not be started with. Amicable environment in the university direct access to him personally by students as well as all the faculty teaching as well non teaching. and resolving the problem then and there. Good course curriculum with 7 specializations in tenth semester, LL.M. one year and Ph.D. on the other hand every faculty give about 12 hrs seating in the university for teaching as well as research and administration of the university. Prov VK is more and more liberal for students welfare and considering himself to be parent in the absence of those parents who are away from their wards and giving feed back to their parents about their well being as well as academic development. Is it bad to taking care of their own students and bring them on the right path rather than misguiding and doing everything Lahe-Lahe (slowly). Try his best to be more and more transparent in every aspect so that they can be good humanbeing and be torch bearer of the society.
    with in last 11 months Prof VK and his colleagues and students could make their best winning about 10 moot court prizes, sports prizes and released two faculty journals one students journal and two more in pipe line.
    Dear saddists and pessimists be cool do not follow blind path of being vulgar your words reflects your mean minded desire and frustration in you life. once you be part of you students feel that what is not going well then comment. what you comment does not mean u r right and every one is bad. You can have your golden days if u be positive and support ur teachers and friends in constructive way.
    Yu may knock the door of court on the point of your refund. Do you feel students , faculty or VC has eaten your money. did you not enjoy all the benefits available or let it not be you did not break head of the person who was your VC or registrar or your faculty. who made you to stay there in the university it mean u were not having any other opportunity to go and your acceptance of the conditions and infrastructure in university will not make your claim success. can you ask your fee paid in CBSE or ask you parents y did they not put u in some Good Medical college or IIT.? your parents will not listen any more u.
    therefore dear friend be friend and do not vomit what is expected from gentle lady or man if you are out of them.
    good luck NLU Assam Bale Bale

  2. Just so you all know, people not belonging to NLUA can also read, comprehend and understand what you guys are doing…GET YOURSELF A ROOM…

  3. hey Tathagat sharma, will u plz tell me, what ur beloved v.c is doing for the 5th year students. (mainly placements)…u r a innocent kid my dear….

  4. shit man shit…. Hey are sexy bey…but not wise. Listen anyways, you chamcha…. and…the author of the post also… look NLUA remains as it is…. your words dont make it good…. your acts will. so shut up…. and dont talk this nonsense. NLUA is growing because of students… not because of VK. What good has he done… he only cries foul each time… “i will resign…i will resign”. does he know anything more. and what happened to refund…. ? he is only sending 5th yr to trip because he doesnt want their interference in fee refund issue. do you know?

  5. There’s no 3rd sem student as of now ryt? Prematurity isn’t going to help my friend. And if people praise you for this work, I can’t be more sad. You’re trying to direct the crowd to a HELL. Shameful.

  6. In this post the author has said a lot of lies or I can say that this complete post is bullshit. I guess the author is well paid by the university or someone from faculty who just want to show how much he/she supports the Vice Chancellor. BTW, I never knew that Prof. Vijender Kumar as an authority of family laws and as said by the author of this post when I googled his name I found this link where it is clearly mentioned that along with the former vice chancellor of Veer Singh, he was accused of authority abused, fudged accounts and more…….. And for those who are appearing in CLAT examination, if you find any other nlu please choose them over NLU-ASSAM.
    go to this link to see the real face of Prof. Vijender Kumar…

    • Then, if you say you never knew Prof.Kumar as an authority on family laws, then I would say you are no less then a pessimist person, who would very well choose Osama Bin Laden as a leader of the state, if his background is less corrupt then, Barack Obama himself. A person being accused and a person being found guilty, makes a hell lot of difference, Mahatma Gandhi was accused of sodomy, “Accused” not proved, I can accuse you of being a disgrace again “Accuse” if I can’t prove that than I am a disgrace, so is everyone, who accuses without substantial proof.

      • Haha…….. i have never seen a foolish like you before who himself/herself accept that he’s/she’s a disgrace…… BTW i have provided a link to prove my point, so stop crying and stop shiting in your diapers… :p

        • Hahaha, providing links to prove points, ok here have one , if links are what satisfies you, and I have not seen a fool who just reads the word disgrace amidst of names like Barack Obama and Mahatma Gandhi. You are the likes who just have to argue without proper reasoning, do read carefully I termed you a disgrace btw. To prove my point you yourself wrote the reply. 😀

  7. Hahahahah! What a blatant lie.

    The one who has written must also tell the world that we have one yellow BUS, rented accomodation for boys which are few kms away. Why dont you also count the number of fans in the college.

    oh yes, you should also say that the chambers of VC and Registrar have 2 AC’s each to help them concentrate on their work!!!!

    The reality is that the infrastructure is the same as it was a t the time of Prof Gurjeet Singh. How do you then say that the infrastructure was not good during his tenure…and that it has improved? Stop this licking business…. whoever has written this post.

    • Read it carefully once again, Prof. Singh is not even criticized even once, neither his tenure, and where is it written that the infra has improved, not even once it is mentioned. Do give a thorough read, then come up with a proper reply.

    • Hello Anonymous Senior student, I agree that the article does not talk about the shortcomings of the University, but when the title states ‘8 reasons to join NLU Assam’, it confuses me as to what content you were expecting to see. It is true that the college has one “Yellow Bus” ( Is yellow a color you dislike? Deepest sympathies to you for not being able to enjoy a better colored bus), but when the college campus is almost in the heart of the city, i personally do not see any point in maintaining a battalion of buses (Of a better color perhaps, which might satisfy your wishes?). It might be true that the VC’s chamber has two AC’s, i do not know of the exact specifics because i didn’t think it was important enough to notice how many Air-conditioners Sir’s chamber has, but what i thought important was to see if he has brought any positive changes to the University, and judging by the formation and functioning of various Research centers, appointment of good quality faculty, change in the work culture of the college, formation of the Student Bar Council etc., i see no point in discussing how many AC’s someone’s chamber has.
      And where are these ‘Blatant lies’ that you talked about? Are you saying that the university does not have permanent faculties? Are you saying the students of the university have not started winning various National competitions? Are you saying that there isn’t a budding sports culture in college now? Are you saying that the fine culture still continues? Of course you aren’t saying that, because if you did, you would be lying. So the question remains, what exactly are you pointing at?
      Every University has their own set of problems, and rather than cribbing incessantly about it, people find solutions to help fix those problems, most of us are trying to do this and make NLUA a better place, maybe you should too. Regards.

    • It’s funny how Mr. ‘saddist’, like a true TRP mongrel in an almost advertisement-like fashion starts off with the phrase ‘FALSEHOOD!FALSEHOOD!FALSEHOOD!’ and then warns Lawctopus to not be like Arnab ‘Gaswami’ (i’m assuming you’re referring to Arnab ‘Goswami’ of Times Now fame). In any event, the article clearly mentions that this is a reader’s post, hence your comment, in all probability, is wasting Lawctopus’s time as much as it is wasting ours. I would suggest you try out Wren and Martin’s English grammar book which might help you improve your communication skills and not make your comment such a pain to read. Here’s the link to the book for your easy reference:

      Best wishes with making sense someday, cheers.
