Though  legal education in India has  changed its shape from good to  best, yet the current decade is  continuously wrapping its face from all around, i.e., from good to bad,  bad to worse,  bad to good and best to excellent. As law has emerged as one of the most promising arenas in professionalizing students, this decade has seen a number of law schools being run as producer of lawyers on papers as well as lawyers crossing the legal height in performance. In the present age the parents charged with ambitions, and the aspirants charged with change, starts to seek at various dimensions, as to which law school should they join, to realize the goal and destination of life?

Moreover, all the Law Schools imparting legal education are theoretically understood as having a role in teaching, training and research & also having nexus with the object of legal education. An institution is considered to be delivering an excellent output when it imparts Legal education, amalgamating all the above mentioned elements in such a manner that by the time a student get his law degree, he may need no further training.  Thus, we can say that in order to be a claimant of the premiership in Law Schools, one has to establish calculatively the above three elements.

If you are argumentative and possess the talent to fight your side to the end, join law school, as lawyers have to battle it out for their clients in court rooms. What makes this profession special is that a lawyer is an agent of change as it gives him/her the power to see rules from different perspectives and present them in a manner that may gradually lead to changes in relevant laws for the benefit of society at large.

Lawyering is a craft that takes a long time to acquire. Half-hearted attempts at lawyering or those who turn to lawyering as a fall-back
 are less likely to succeed in this profession. One has to be skilled in speaking, researching, reading, writing, and above all patience. Persistence is an important attribute that a lawyer has to develop. A lawyer has to cogently put across a point for which tough texts have to be read, researched and analyzed with keen attention to the minutest detail. Arguments have to be written flawlessly and argued convincingly but coolly. It is imperative for aspiring lawyers to participate in Moot Court Competitions in law schools. One such institution is the School of Law, THE NORTHCAP UNIVERSITY (NCU), Gurgaon.

Simulated court proceedings or Moot Courts are an integral part of law study and every area of law can conduct Moot Courts. Participants prepare cases by writing out submissions and presenting parties in oral pleadings in front of an expert Jury. 

Why participate in a Moot Court Competitition 
Inter-collegiate Moot Court Competitions are a great way to practice the skills of studying and analyzing a case in depth, writing it out and then arguing it out for the team to win. It sharpens your persuasive writing and oral advocacy skills. You gain self-confidence as you work with other students to set and accomplish goals. More importantly ‘Mooters’ have fun while learning.

Law colleges of Delhi-NCR and other states came together at NCU’s moot court competition to showcase as well as hone their advocacy skills. It was a platform to demonstrate core and practical skills along with the use of theory to enhance their research, analysis, investigatory skills and also develop a passion for law.

Negotiating is particularly an important skill to acquire for a potential lawyer as the guilty need representation too and s/he won’t always be representing the innocent party. A lawyer has to negotiate and try to win a lesser jail sentence or compensation for someone that’s broken the law, not something you’d expect when you went to Law School!

Moot Court Competitions are an occasion to meet and interact with distinguished members of the bench and bar who speak at the event or judge the oral arguments. It is also an opportunity for employers to select potential lawyers for their organization and for the college it offers excellent campus placement opportunity. Many competitors use an excerpt of their brief as a writing sample for job interviews.

Best Law School to study in Delhi NCR and Haryana

The legal profession in the country has witnessed monumental changes in the last few decades. Gone are the days when students used to choose law as a residuary option. Today it is one of the most sought after career options because of the diversity it offers after successful completion of the course. Besides, being a lawyer or judge, a student may pursue a lucrative career in law firms, corporate houses, LPOs, UN organizations, etc.

In view of such development,
Law School at THE NORTHCAP UNIVERSITY, Gurgaon offers a unique opportunity to the students to excel in their academics through a dynamic curriculum, outstanding faculty with varied professional experiences, substantive clinical training and co-curricular activities. The innovatively conceived 5 year BBA-LLB (Hons) degree program integrates the study of law with management for enhancing the employability of the students. The court room exercises and projects as part of every subject make studying law at the NCU Law School more professionally oriented. Furthermore, a student can specialise in a particular area depending on his interest and inclination. Mandatory internship programs during every semester break provide hands on experience with real cases and live situations. Gurgaon being a hub of law firms and corporate offices and proximity to the courts and tribunals including the Supreme Court of India give the students an edge to practice law in the area of their choice. With New Delhi at its door steps, the NCU Law School has also been able to attract numerous eminent guests from the industry, the bar and the bench as well as other professional institutions to supplement the classroom lectures. Legal luminaries like Late Justice J S Verma, CJI; Justice P N Bhagwati, CJI; Justice Syed Refaat Ahmed, Supreme Court of Bangladesh; Mr Siddharth Luthra, Additional Solicitor General of India; Prof. (Dr.) R. Venkata Rao, VC, NLSIU, Bengaluru; Prof. (Dr.) Ranbir Singh, VC, NLU, New Delhi; are only few to name the legal luminaries gracing the Law School.

In fact, the students have reaped rich dividends because of the academic rigor and opportunities offered at the NCU Law School. Not only have they proven their ability by winning national level moot court competitions, debates and other such legal events, but have also got the opportunity to intern at the best law firms and advocates’ offices in Delhi NCR like Amarchand Mangaldas, Luthra & Luthra, J Sagar Associates, etc. Additionally, some of them have also pre-placement offers through such internships.

The locational advantage coupled with emphasis on practical component have made NCU Law School an enviable destination for students across the states of India – from J&K to Tamil Nadu, from Rajasthan to Manipur – to our extremely diverse and vibrant group of student community. Aspirants with good academics from various well-known schools vie for admission to the limited seats available strictly on the basis of the performance in CLAT/LSAT/AILET.

If one is looking forward to a professionally relevant gruelling stint for 5 years in law education in Delhi NCR and Haryana, NCU Law School can well become the epicentre of their aspiration.
