The National Law University Odisha (NLUO) promises to be an exciting new development in the field of legal education. A very new institution, its establishing Act of legislature was notified as recently as April 2009 and within a span of four months, classes commenced with the entrance being conducted in May. The University has made a name for itself by earning laurels with excellent performance of its students in various seminars, conferences and moot courts.
NLUO is located in Cuttack, a city dating back to over a thousand years, and also boasting a rich legal heritage – not only is the Orissa High Court situated here, but also some of the finest lawyers and judges of the country trace their roots back to this city.
Currently the University has admitted students from no less than twenty-five States, representing a diverse range of socio-economic, ethnic, religious and cultural backgrounds. We hope that in the years to come, students from even more divers backgrounds will join NLUO, thereby underscoring its truly national character.
Mission and Vision
Being a third generation law university, we aim to establish our reputation as one of the best legal education provider at national and international level by creating our own unique practices and also by learning the best practices from other top notch law schools.
Our aim to achieve the level of excellence can be reached through the following well defined course of actions:
We believe legal education is not merely confined to class room teaching. So our teaching method emphasizes to achieve a concert between the theoretical inputs and their implementation in real life situations, essential to legal practices. We provide academic environment which stimulates out of box thinking among our students.
We ensure to provide multidimensional education environment to our students. To achieve this we adhere to an integrated, multi-disciplinary approach by offering various courses under the programs like BA.LLB (Hons) and BBA.LLB (Hons). We provide various optional courses, which allow a student from social science stream to opt for few management courses and vice versa.
We encourage and prepare our students to choose from wide range of careers as legal professionals in the areas of litigation (practicing advocates or judges) to corporate law.
We believe continuing education as an integral part of legal profession. So we intend to regularly conduct orientation, workshop and training programs for academicians, judicial officers, practicing advocates and social activists for continuous up gradation of knowledge and skills.
The dearth of quality legal research, both theoretical and applied, is another major challenge confronting legal education. In this respect, it is also to be noted that legal research is perceptibly distancing itself from socially relevant issues. To address this, the University proposes to establish a number of specialized centers, such as the Centre of Mining Law, Centre of Water Law, Centre of Agriculture and Food Law, and the Centre of Energy Law.
We believe best minds can create and train best young talents. So we put strong emphasis on acquiring and creating best and experienced pool of talents as our faculty members in the national and international level. We provide all support for continuous development of our faculty members in the form of research initiatives, grants for attending workshops & conferences at national and international level.
We intend to provide best in class infrastructure conducive to best practices of legal education. We provide state-of-art infrastructure like fully equipped library, 24*7 wi-fi enabled campus, audio-visual enabled class rooms, single bedded hostel rooms etc to facilitate the learning process.
As a law school we consider that we have a greater role to play for the development of our community, for which we have adopted a multi-pronged strategy. To begin with, this includes organizing quality lectures, seminars and conferences to promote legal scholarship, propagation of legal knowledge, bridging the law and society divide, and also using the legal process as an effective means of social reform and evolution. And the second aspect is to generate publications, intended for scholars, non-legal specialists as well as the general public.
