How good is CLC when compared with below 10 rank NLUs ? And is there any better college for LLB in INDIA ?
Both of these Universities are Premier Law Institutions of India. They are both excellent when it comes to quality education. However, there are certain NLUs such as NLSIU Bangalore that are widely considered as the best law Institution in the country. There are newer, upcoming NLUs as well, which, even though not quite on the same level as the top Universities in the country, are still excellent in their performance.
Campus Law centre of Delhi University is perhaps one of the topmost law colleges in the country. Compared to other top institutions, it's fares better in some fields, but not so much in others. The point I'm trying to make is that every Institution is better than others in one way or the other and vice versa.
In the end, it's all about your preferences and conveniences. You should go with the choice that suits you and your interests best.
Hope this helps!
Best of luck!!
is clat is important for BA.LLB in du?
Look first point is Delhi university doesn't offer BA LLB course. It has only LLB course.
If you want to get into LLB then clat is not mandatory, Delhi university conducts its own entrance examination. You need to qualify the entrance examination for getting admission into the university
