NIMT's scope is measured in its unparalleled breadth and depth of courses, its wide array of research programs, its diverse student body drawn from across the nation and its extensive network of distinguished alumni. More broadly, law students can tap into NIMT’s extraordinary resources through this program.
Bachelor of Laws (Latin: Legum Baccalaureus; LL.B. or B.L.) is an undergraduate degree in law (or a first professional degree in law, depending on jurisdiction) originating in England and offered in Japan and most common law jurisdictions—except the United States and Canada—as the degree which allows a person to become a lawyer.It historically served this purpose in the U.S. as well, but was phased out in the mid-1960s in favor of the Juris Doctor degree, and Canada followed suit.
Historically, in Canada, Bachelor of Laws was the name of the first degree in common law, but is also the name of the first degree in Quebec civil law awarded by a number of Quebec universities. Canadian common-law LL.B. programmes were, in practice, second-entry professional degrees, meaning that the vast majority of those admitted to an LL.B. programme were already holders of one or more degrees, or, at a minimum (with very few exceptions), have completed two years of study in a first-entry, undergraduate degree in another discipline. Currently, Bachelor of Laws is also the name of the first degree in Scots law and South African law (both being pluralistic legal systems that are based partly on common law and partly on civil law) awarded by a number of universities in Scotland and South Africa, respectively.
Moot Courts are being organized in the class rooms and one Live Model Moot-Court is also held to inculcate in the students the habit of debating on various legal points.
In order to activate and impart knowledge of legal right and duties, the College gets its student trained and sends them to the courts (High Court, District Court & Village Courts) so as to have a first hand grasp and assist the poor and down-trodden people about their Constitutional Rights, Settlement of their disputes through Legal Literacy Awareness, Conciliation, Arbitration and Mediation and Lok Adalats (ADR).
Professors, eminent persons, academicians, social scientists, judges and lawyers are also invited to deliver special lectures in the college.
The college is running Legal Aid Clinic very effectively for awareness of the public especially in rural areas. For this purpose three camps were organized by the clinic in the session.

Be a Litigation Lawyer
Most of the students who graduate from a Law College opt for this option. This field of career is the one corresponding to the clichéd Lawyer we see on television or in movies. After you receive your Law degree, you can enroll yourself to any State Bar Council and then sit for All India Bar Examination. Once you pass in it, then you can practice as a Lawyer in India. It is a very lucrative career option but challenging as well. One can earn minimum Rs 10 lacs p.a. if he or she excels in this field.
Sit for Competitive Exams (UPSC)
Many aspirants prepare for Competitive Exams like Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) while taking coaching or preparing themselves. With great financial support, this is a great choice of career involving the opportunity to service the nation and the public at large.
Sit for Judiciary Exams [PCS (J), HJS]
Judiciary exams are one of the most prestigious exams in the country which hold the portal for the most coveted profession in the Legal Fraternity- The Judge. Students after passing out from their Universities can sit for Judiciary exams like PCS (J) and HJS. It is a tough exam to crack but once cracked, opens the opportunity for being one of the most respectable and responsible citizen of the country.
Pursue Further Studies (LLM)
Pursuing LLM is another option one has when he or she prefers to land on a profession that involves vast and extensive research or pedagogy. One can pursue research fellowship programmes through the government after completing their masters. Once chosen, you may get an opportunity to study and research abroad completely or partially funded by the Government. For being eligible to teach in Law Schools one needs to have a Master’s degree as well as NET (National Eligibility Test) Qualification. Along with this a good experience and a well written resume can also help.
Join the Corporate Sector (Company Secretary)
Most of the prospective Law Students want to go to Law School because they want to work in a Corporate Firm and earn the ‘big bucks’. A fresh graduate from maybe National Law School of India University (NLSIU) or NALSAR, the two big brothers of the NLU Family can expect to receive minimum INR 7 Lacs package from any reputed firm like Amarchand Mangaldas, Luthra & Luthra, Khaitan & Co. etc.
If a student is from an NLU, then his or her chances of achieving this dream might be a bit easy compared to a student studying in any other Law College, nevertheless it is achievable. But the journey is not that easy. One needs to have another degree for Company Secretary-ship from an Institution called ICSI in India, which is the most reputed Company Secretary institute in India. Passing the ICSI exams are quite difficult and that too along with the law college syllabus but the fruit of all the hard-work is worth picking and the bite most scrumptious.
