Investing in a good legal education requires students to consider various factors like the location, faculty profile and multidisciplinary environment of the law school. With the CLAT scores released recently, the apprehension levels are high among the law school aspirants. They would soon have to choose an institution to incubate their legal career for the next five years. The large numbers of CLAT and LSAT takers point to an increasing interest among aspirants to acquire a legal education. Question is, are all the law schools in the same league? During the admission season, one can come across a new law school advertisement every day. So, how to choose the right law school amongst these? To choose the right law school, one can identify a minimum of six parameters. First and foremost, the location of the school is really important, because for the legal aspirants, ‘Lab’ is outside the school. With the compulsory credit course of the internship, they also need to move around to participate in moot courts, seminars, conferences, etc.

Secondly, the faculty profile decides the learning process and motivation to sustain five long years. A faculty line up which is drawn across the country and abroad brings in the various shades of intellectual scholarship.

Thirdly, the infrastructure in terms of learning resources is a crucial component to have an edge on the information and data mining of legal materials.

The fourth important parameter is global tie-ups. With the breach of the strict domestic-international barriers in legal education, the law school having academic and exchange tie-ups with global legal institutions will give the edge. However, there is a need to look deeply whether the logos of universities abroad are flaunted or provide actual interaction opportunities for budding lawyers. The next point would be the work-life balance. Festivals of arts and culture, sports complexes, etc will make for a positive legal professional.

Finally, ‘law’ is considered as an end product of the interdisciplinary discussion of arts, humanities, science, and management. If a law school is located in a multi-disciplinary university, it has its added advantages. Investing in legal education has to be an informed decision because the chosen law school is going to be your ‘home’ away from ‘home’ for five formative years of your personality and profession.

The law programmes of Bennett University, both integrated 5 Year BA LLB (Hons) and BBA LLB (Hons), have been developed keeping in mind these six parameters. They have been designed to help students make a successful career in any field, be it corporate, litigation, academia, or judicial services.

which is better cse at nit meghalaya or ece at bennett university for beech?

Dipesh Mann 6th Sep, 2019

Hi,

This mainly comes down to your interest.

Comparing the colleges, both colleges are decent in their own aspects.

NIT Meghalaya is relatively newer, however being an NIT, you will be receiving good academics and placements there.

Bennett Uni. is also not behind in terms of infrastructure, decent academics, etc.

So, basically it comes down to your interest, whether you want to pursue CSE or you have interest in ECE subjects.

You could google some reviews about both colleges to get a better idea about it.

Good luck.

Shivangi Chauhan Student Expert 16th Jul, 2019

Hello,

Both the colleges are good in their own way. 

You should according to your need and expectations from the college. 

Here i am making the comparison between the two colleges. 

BENNETT UNIVERSITY : 

There is no good placement record in the college as it had started two years back, but placements are expected to be  great in the next few years(2020_2022). There is a placement career management staff to take care of everything regarding placements. I hope placements will be very good in future.

Infrastructure: The infrastructure of the college is good. Their maintenance is also good.

Thapar University:

The University is not affordable, its very expensive .The fee structure is on the expensive side at Thapar University.

The placement at the campus is good.

The hostels are good. The University has 12 hostels.

The faculty team available is generally doctorate-qualified and is well-versed with the subject they teach. They usually give knowledge about the latest technology which we are working with and some extra knowledge too.

Hope  you will now be able to choose best for you.

Good luck!
