The good about CLC in DU | DU LLB
DU Law Faculty is certainly a superior option and has an edge. If Law as a subject interests you then DU LLB would and should be one your topmost choices for the same. Why so? Here are the reasons: The college/university is a great chance for you to build a circle and contacts. The institute has produced some of the top lawyers, jurists, civil servants and politicians over the years. It is one of the top 3 institutes in India currently providing this course. It offers three choices to choose from within the DU Campus- Campus Law Centre or CLC, Law Centre 1, Law Centre 2. If somebody wants to make his or her career in litigation he/she may approach DU, as there is much exposure.
With a 2300-strong undergraduate student body, CLC is one of the largest law colleges in the country. Pedigree and size are the twin selling points of this institute. Campus Law Centre benefits from being an integral part of one of the country’s oldest and most prestigious universities. Moreover the alumni list bears the testament to the role CLC had to play in feeding the Delhi Bar and Judiciary as well as other avenues for legal professionals all over the country for decades past. Renowned academicians who have taught at CLC are Prof. Upendra Baxi, Prof. N.R. Madhava Menon, Prof. M.P. Singh, Prof. B.B. Pandey, Prof. A.K. Koul to name a few.
The Moot Court Society, which organizes the famous K.K. Luthra Memorial International Moot Court Competition, the Seminar and Discussion Society and the Legal Aid Society are have continuously contributed to the over-all skill development of the students at CLC.
The Placement Assistance Council (PAC) is yet another student body which, over the years, has helped getting students placed with independent litigators, NGOs top law firms and corporate houses like Amarchand Mangaldas, Wipro, PWC, Ernst & Young to name a few.
It is no wonders that CLC is joined by students who have Undergraduate and Postgraduate degrees from top notch universities across the globe namely Yale, Ohio State, Florida, LSE, Bristol and the likes.
The bad about CLC in DU
While Campus Law Centre may boast of a strong 2300-student base drawn from almost all branches of Undergraduate studies in India, the quality of students admitted in the Faculty is a serious concern. It is estimated that only about 30 percent of the total strength has actually joined the law school to become a lawyer/legal consultant. Basic building infrastructure is one which CLC lacks in. Small, inadequate and dirty classrooms are where students learn the basics of the legal profession. There is no Moot Court Hall, the classrooms are adjusted to make them look like a Moot Court Room of a 3rd tier law school.
Most of the students join CLC to prepare for Civil Services exams, and law being their fall back option. This lack of interest in law (as a profession) makes these students abstain themselves from classroom discussions, seminars and extra-curricular activities (e.g. moot courts, legal aid, etc). All these factors and a few others heavily influence placement scenario at the campus in an adverse manner. While top firms prefer taking students who have already interned with them through PPOs, smaller firms recruit fewer students with salaries not worth the brand a CLC graduate carries. It is seen that only around 100-150 students out of 500-600 final year students opt for placements and the placement council manages to place only 50-60 out of them.
