RMLNLU is the place of binaries. In the midst of bustling, hyper activity and periods of deceptive calm, it gives you the freedom to choose what you want to do with your time. With not very demanding academic commitments which include classes from 10 am to 3 pm at an average, 6 project submissions per semester and end term examinations, there is room for investment in co-curricular activities like regular debating sessions, bi-annual University Moot Court Selections for allotment of moot court competitions, sports and availability of a well-equipped library that’s functional till 10 pm, providing ample room and access to online and offline sources for extensive legal research.
We have just successfully finished organizing the RML Parliamentary Debate 2016 which saw immense participation from students across the country and was won by St Stephen’s. Aavahan, the annual sports fest of our college witnessed enthusiastic participation in football, cricket, basketball, volleyball, badminton, table and lawn tennis, carrom, chess, counter strike and FIFA. This weekend, we are eagerly awaiting the commencement of the 4th SCC Online Moot Court Competition 2016, which will be followed by the 2nd Edition of the RML National Mediation Competition, which when founded was the first of its kind to be hosted in Asia.
The seniors are as approachable as the administration is intolerable. The hostels have been built with care and staffed with conscientious, responsible personnel to ensure that none of our concerns go unnoticed and prompt remedies are provided. The only concerns are the conservative attitudes of our administration which often translates to moral policing, unnecessary interference in activities of the student body, patriarchal attitudes and a dire need for competent faculty to add to the couple of brilliant teachers we’re grateful to be students of. All in all, with its awe-inducing infrastructure , and availability of options to choose from for recreation and fine tuning of legal skills, with the recent establishment of the Legal Services Clinic and student run societies for excellence in competition, constitutional, arbitration and intellectual property rights’ law, this is a place that will carve its place in one’s life and heart.
