By | February 28, 2017

Aditi Chauhan
Faculty of Law, Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh (Uttar Pradesh) – 202002
Peaceful Campus of the university is situated far from the noise of the city and out of the
town’s busy streets spread over 467.6 hectare in the city of Aligarh.
The infrastructure is based on British designed model. All facilities from IT hub center,
auditoriums, Maulana Azad Library which is second largest library of Asia, Moot court,
departmental seminar, lawns, horse riding fields and a rich sports complex which has all  possible outdoor and indoor sports from skating rings, hockey ground, swimming
complex, cricket ground and many more.
Hostel for boys and girls are situated at a distance of 0.5 km from main University
campus. Well-furnished two seater rooms are provided to Law students. Facilities like Wi-Fi, gym, TV room, basketball court, Laundry, mess are provided inside the hostels.
Healthy and quality food is assured, proper care of hygiene in the pantry as well as hostel premises is taken. Micro waves, refrigerators, toasters, water purifiers and water coolers
are provided for every wing. There is a canteen within the hostel as well, apart from
faculty and university canteen. Beautiful garden and lawn is present inside the hostel
making the hostel more beautiful.
The faculty has been ranked 6th among best laws schools in India. Students are given an environment where they can prosper and develop their own individual ideologies and identities. All the teachers are Ph.D. qualified with various glories to their name like, the chairman Prof. I A Khan has revised book on Muslim law referred in prominent Law schools, Prof. Badar Ahmad wrote a book on critical analysis of the constitution of India which is highly praised of around the country. The teachers are always ready to help the students with academics as well as, papers and moots. The lectures are worth listening and enriching. The students are given access to various Law journals in the seminar as well as online access to Manupatra, SCC online etc.
The best part is that you get all the facilities provided in any lucrative private colleges of
India at a nominal fee. The tuition fee annually is 7k only. Hostel requires no fees at all
only mess charge of 1400 per month. You can request for remission of fees if you are
unable to pay it.
There are several canteens around the campus. Separate canteen is there in hostel as well as faculty. Canteens provide a range and variety of food at a nominal price.
Students can enroll themselves in cultural clubs. The faculty holds various fests such as
Law Fest and the university celebrates Sir Syed day, Hall weeks etc. every year in which
students can show the hidden Shakespeare and MichaelJackson inside them.
The faculty doesn’t invite much corporates to campus because they want the students to
go for judicial and civil services or lead the nation as budding litigators and carry on the
past legacy of the faculty. The faculty has given prominent personalities to India as well
as other nations like Mr. Justice Baharul Islam, Mr. Justice R P Sethi Supreme Court
judges. (Chief justice Tanzania) Justice Baseer Ahmad, (Justice of Uganda) Justice
Augustine Saedi and lot more. In the year 2016, 18 students from the faculty were
successfully placed as judges in India.
The faculty has a competitive environment. If the lectures and academics are sincerely
followed be sure to clear judicial or civil service within a year after the completion of the course.
Lack of adequate placement to the students who wants to pursue as corporates in future.
