  • Location :

Hosur Road , Bengaluru

The campus is located in a prime business district. There are malls and a lot of restaurants nearby.

Clubs and Pubs are in abundance and the nightlife is pretty good.

  • Official website:

  • Infrastructure :

The Infrastructure is one area where School of Law, Christ University can give the NLUs a run for their money.

  • Classrooms :

The Academic Block is spread over two huge floors in a ten storied building.

The classrooms are spacious and are provided with uninterrupted electricity, state of the art projectors and speakers.

  • A. Campus :

The college provides with all the best facilities for a student. The infrastructure of the college is very good.It’s known for its excellent campus and state of the art infrastructure.Cleanliness and hygiene is all around in the campus. It has the best world class auditorium in Bangalore.Additionally, the whole campus has pretty fast WiFi, though you can’t access your social Networking sites.Also, the cultural diversity is amazing with people from across the world.

  • B. Library :

The fact that we have eight floors of books shared by two libraries should give you a idea of the sheer volume of titles and resources present.

There is a separate law library which has a lot of books for each area of law. Not to forget is the access to online repositories and journals that we posses. Name it and we have it. One of the redeeming qualities of our law school is the Library.

  • Hostel:

There is a girls hostel and a boys hostel on campus with security systems that can put the White House to shame.

  • Academics and Facilities :

The variance in quality of faculty is astronomical.

We have internationally published authors and professors with decades of experience teaching alongside freshers right out of college.

However, For an Ideal teacher to exist there must be Ideal students and the students in my law school are not what you call ideal.

  • Course Structure :

Another redeeming feature. (Apparently) The course plan is deliberated upon by subject specialists before the beginning of every semester.

Choice of Electives are given from the Second year itself. The list of subjects is quite expansive. Skim through the brochure to know more.  All days except Saturdays classes begin at 9:30 in the morning and go on till 3:30 in the evening (12:30 P.M on Saturdays) with an hour for lunch in between.

  • Administration and fee structure :

The administration is strict but good most of the times. There is a Student representative body which is a facade created to make us believe that our opinions matter.

  • Fees :

Refer to website.

  • Cafeteria :

It also noteworthy that there is a wide range to choose from, the food is reasonable and most of it tastes that good.

  • Student culture and activities :

When there are 1500 students studying in a law school, it becomes a breeding ground for mediocrity. Students lose their individualism and become a part of the herd.

It takes a lot of effort to stand out.

Most of the students were born with a silver spoon which translates into indifference with respect to academic and co-curricular activities.

However, there are also hardworking students who strive to make a mark for themselves. Drugs are not unheard of either.

  • Moots :

Around 180 teams of three members each register for the Internal Rounds. So that goes to say there is an active mooting culture.

Other co-curricular, extra-curricular activities – This is where the number of students adds to our advantage. Debating has a substantial following among the student body in School of Law, Christ University. We are very good at cultural activities and sports.

  • Societies/ Committees :

There are so many that I can’t even name all of them. Most of them are fairly active and take up good initiatives.

  • Placement :

If not the top 5 NLUs, then ChristSchool of law, is the best choice. Companies like Wipro, L&T etc. are prominent recruiters who offer plush packages. this year Wipro offeredplacement to 6 5th year students who attained a package of Rs. 11 lakh/annum + bonus up to 2 lakh. ICICI is a regular recruiter . Even Amarchand Mangaldas , AZB Partners , Khaitan and Co. , Luthra and Luthra etc. are regular recruiters too.
