As reported by The Telegraph it seems likely that NLU Orissa is soon to join the other 11 National Universities which are part of the CLAT. Headed by a very effective and dynamic Vice Chancellor, Faizan Mustafa, the University is all set to achieve new heights. Joining the CLAT is surely part of that.
In its short two years of existence NLUO has already carved out a niche for itself with its students doing very well at a lot of inter college competitions and other such fora. NLUO has the vision of a legal luminary and constitutional expert in the form of Prof. Mustafa who is not only a competent administrator but a great teacher too. We had attended a seminar conducted by him at NALSAR and his profound knowledge left us all overwhelmed.
NLUO used to conduct its own entrance tests till date and were known to be one of the toughest and most testing ones for law school aspirants. NLUO is known for brilliant faculty members and huge support from the state government. Functioning from a temporary campus NLUO is soon to shift to their very own new campus within a short span of time.
So law aspirants gear up. You have one more law school in the CLAT fold. The good news is one less exam to write and a brilliant new university that is available to you through the CLAT itself.
