After being protected in the comfortable cocoon of schooling, we are let out into the arena called college where we take our first steps as adults. College is the place where we truly find who we really are and what potentials we hold. It is therefore necessary that we enter into the right college which would give us the opportunities to grow and develop.

Training and Placement Cell
The Placement cell handles the on campus and off campus placements of the students. The placement ration in the University is very high. Since the School of Law has just been started the placements have not yet begun. The first batch passes out in 2019.
Administration and fees

The students can also appear for an exam conducted by the University to qualify for the scholarships known as the Lovely Professional University-NEST. Apart from the tuition fee the students have to pay the residential and food fees according to their room and mess preferences.
Best thing about your law school
Two best things about the law school is the Faculty and the placement cell.
The faculty are very approachable and the interactions with the higher authorities are not very procedural. They are always ready to trend to our requests. Moreover since the student teacher ratio is maintained at a minimum level, every student gets the individual attention and support.
The placement cell works at its best at securing good internships for the students. So far the students have secured internships at renowned firms and practitioners in the Country.
Worst thing about your law school
The worst thing about the school of law is that since it has just started the students face the problem of lack of guidance from the Alumni.
