It gives opportunity to those who want to pursue law after their graduation. This is the most vital part that CLC not only to teach law but to provide for an overall development of students.
There is a question that how CLC is different from the other 5 years law schools? The answer to this question is that CLC caters to student body which is very different from that found in 5 years law schools. 5 years course is intended for students who have just left the high school and in CLC students have obtained at least one undergraduate degree prior and many students in CLC have multiple degree and work experience.
So the students of CLC have education in different field and this also help students to have meaningful dialogue and discussions in different fields.

Coming to the infrastructure it is pretty basic with the facilities provided being comparable to those in the other government colleges, although the building is a bit old but the campus is quite good enough.

Question: Tell us your experience in Campus Law Centre, Delhi University?
Answer: I think the environment like CLC pushes you or forces you to go outside your comfort zone because it is such a challenging environment, you having lunch or tea table conversation to people who have excelled in their own specific fields. You have someone who is great debater, someone who love history, psychology etc. making it enriching to interact and understand things in their subtleties, what that does this when all of these people come together and have a conversation its very enriching because you get so many different perspectives and helps to build an entire new and engaging world view, this is most important as it opens your mind up and it is also a tool kit, the knowledge skill set you can use rest of your life.
