What Do the Current DU LLB Students Have To Say?

My experience of CLC has been very similar to my undergrad which is also from DU. The curriculum is designed in a manner where the emphasis on the case-law method of learning is foremost. The course structure is also much more rigorous compared to a liberal arts undergrad from DU. I think the centre tries to pull all stops to ensure that it can provide for things within the limited resources that it has.

DU definitely lags behind law schools like JGLS or Top Tier NLUs, our infrastructure, our faculty, our course structure, access to mooting is no match to them. I however still feel that there is only as much one can ask for when paying Rs 7000 in a year as your cumulative fee. I think overall it is a decent bargain if someone wants to litigate in the future and is a serious candidate.
