After the results of CLAT 2015, I entered Nirma which was the last option in my bucket. But the kind of peace and satisfaction that I feel here with every passing day here is inexpressible. Institute of Law, Nirma University is a unique institution of the country. It was the first private college to start taking admissions through Common Law Admission Test (CLAT). Since its inception under the aegis of Nirma University in the year 2007, the institute has shown tremendous growth in a plethora of diverse sectors. The institute came into existence to fulfil the demand of the emerging legal profession and to provide excellent legal education.
Starting with the campus, it has a beautiful campus with lush green surroundings. The institute shares the campus with other institutions thereby has a plenty of resources. The campus has a vast sports complex for indoor as well as outdoor games. In the category of outdoor it includes running track, football and cricket ground, tennis and badminton court while in indoor it has table tennis, chess, carom to name a few. The university has its own hostels which are limited in number as they do not suffice the need of all the students. The hostels have gymnasium, dedicated mess and all other required facilities. There are total four canteens to serve the people of different institutes. The institute has fully air-conditioned classes which acts as the catalysts in the learning process. It also has a very rich Library Resource Centre which has plethora of books and subscriptions for different disciplines.
Coming next to the education, ILNU is known for its hardworking students throughout the country. The institute makes its students ready for all diverse fields including litigation, politics, diplomacy, judgeship, corporate clerkship etc. The institute has a very strict timetable which is followed by the students as well as faculties with utmost sincerity. There are dedicated after class discussion hours which help students to innovate and reinvent legal education. Teachers at ILNU are like your mentors; they not only teach you the texts but also nurture you to be a good human being. The Institute today has the faculty whose expertise spans across various areas of law and who have a wide range of teaching and research experience. The institute has the minimum 85% attendance policy which helps in maintaining uniformity in the learning process.
The institute is very careful in acknowledging the talented students and hence it’s the only private institute that provides scholarship on two grounds of merit and merit come means basis only after the eligibility to avail the scholarship is proven by the student. It also sponsors the participation of its students in various academic as well as non-academic competitions. The institute has a well-defined system of choosing the ones who will represent college outside as in the form of different panels. It includes Debating panel, moot court panel and Alternate dispute resolution panel.
The institute has a very strong students’ association known as The Nirma Institute of Law Students Activities Association (NILSAA). There are various committees which work under the guidance of NILSAA. All the committees are headed by their chairpersons and core committee members.
The institute is yet to see more glory with a proactive dean and the student lot getting better after every year. If one keeps faith in himself, the seniors and the institute he will definitely have a great time.
