There have been series of deliberations among the legal academia and practitioners on the functioning of various agencies involved in the administration of criminal justice in the recent times. There is no denying the fact that such discourses do have a strong impact on the criminal justice process that involve the law enforcement agencies, prosecution, judiciary and corrections. With the advancement of science and technology, every stage of criminal proceeding encounters new challenges which need to be addressed. Access to justice, in general is a major challenge in the contemporary time and the factors responsible for its denial need to be pondered upon for a more accountable system of criminal justice. Taking these facts into consideration, School of Law, the NorthCap University in collaboration with the Indian Bar Association organized a ‘National Conference on Criminal Justice Administration in India: Contemporary Issues & Challenges’ on April 8, 2017. Eminent dignitaries from the legal fraternity such as Justice Vidya Bhushan Gupta, Former Judge, Delhi High Court, Prof. (Dr.) G.S. Bajpai, Registrar, National Law University Delhi, New Delhi and Sh. KTS Tulsi, Senior Advocate, the Supreme Court of India were present during the Inaugural Ceremony to grace the occasion. In his Welcome address, Prof. (Dr.) Prem Vrat, Pro-Chancellor, NCU expressed his pleasure to host the conference on a contemporary theme and stated “a holistic approach is the need of the hour towards facilitation of better criminal justice administration”. One of his suggestions was interlinking of law and technology to facilitate a smoother justice administration. Emphasizing on the importance of the Conference on an area which is highly crucial in today’s time, Mr. KTS Tulsi expressed concerns about the invisibility of the victims and the plight of the poor section in the criminal justice system. He also provided concrete suggestions such as recording of telephone calls in police stations during registration of cases and setting up a separate interrogation room facilitating a fair process. Justice Vidya Bhushan Gupta shared some of his experiences and challenges encountered during the justice delivery process. He referred to some of the crucial provisions of the Criminal law and encouraged the young lawyers to explore the possibility of their effective application in the administration of criminal justice. Justice Gupta also highlighted the plight of the victims in the process. Delivering the keynote address, Prof. (Dr.) G.S. Bajpai, Registrar, National Law University Delhi, emphasized on crucial issues such as access to justice, how the poor class is placed in the system and over-criminalization. He also expressed- “lesser importance has been given on criminal justice, which itself has become a problem rather than a solution”. Addressing the participants from all over the country, who have contributed their research papers on various relevant themes such as cyber-crime investigation, juvenile justice, courts etc, Prof. Bajpai suggested all the researchers from other institutions as well as the NorthCap University to focus on conducting empirical studies to identify the major challenges in the criminal justice system. The Conference had various technical sessions where around one hundred students and professionals from different institutions presented their research papers. The sessions were chaired by eminent academicians. Three research papers were awarded the First, Second and Third Prize in the Conference. The awardees are -

First Prize - Arshia Katyal, USLLS (GGSIPU), & Smrita Sinha, Amity Law School, Delhi

Second Prize - Anusha Arif & Akash Chaudhury, Aligarh Muslim University, U.P.

If you are argumentative and possess good communication skills, studying Law could be the best option

Mr Subhradipta Sarkar
Assistant Professor, 
School of Law
The NorthCap University, Gurgaon 

Bhago!Bhago! Life is a race, if you don't run fast, you will be like a broken annda” – I still wonder whether it’s the mantra of success or failure for most of us when we grow up. Many times it so happens that neither the parents nor students are aware of the destination. And poor students have fewer options left and have to necessarily follow the ‘great expectations’ of their parents.

So, are you voluntarily choosing Law as your first career option? Are you seriously looking for a good law school in Haryana?  I know many young minds go through similar ordeal and are at crossroads about their future. I can assure all young aspirants that the 5-year integrated degree programme in Law is worth pursuing. If you believe that you possess good communication skills – both writing and speaking; you are interested in debates, good in analytical reasoning, have keen interest in social and political affairs – give yourself a chance in Law. This honourable profession needs more of your kind. For this reason, we, at NCU Law School encourage students to excel in their all-round capacity.

Gone are those days when people used to consider law as a residual career option and crowd the courts with no business. I am glad to see that there are an increasing number of top notch students opting for law as a career. Newer avenues are unfolding. Apart from your option of becoming a lawyer or a judge; you may also join as a legal advisor to law firms, companies, financial institutions, LPOs, national and international NGOs, UN agencies, so on and so forth. Now there are new arenas of legal specialities available which were unheard of until recently; e.g. international trade, technology and law, forensic science and law, intellectual property regime, etc. Situated near New Delhi – the hub of multifarious activities, law schools in Haryana, especially Gurgaon, have the edge in providing students with better exposure. Be assured, if you are sincere to your work, the profession is extremely rewarding both in terms of money and respect.

At present, legal education is in very high demand. There are an increasing number of law schools providing quality legal education opening up in different parts of the country. Ranks and achievements proclaim NCU Law School is one such law school in Haryana. So friends, if you are willing to do something different in life, this course offers you the requisite firepower. The opportunity is knocking on the door; the decision is yours – should you open it? For your information, CLAT and LSAT are two nationwide common entrance tests conducted for the National Law Schools and some other selected Law Schools respectively. Tests are generally conducted in the month of May. So watch out for the availability of forms in January – February. Student of any stream either appearing for or has passed the XII Examination may take those tests. It is mandatory to take either of those tests for admission at NCU Law School.

Wishing you all the best for your future!

NCU School of Law - Legal Education matching global frontiers

Dr Arvind P Bhanu
Associate Professor 
School of Law
The NorthCap University,Gurgaon

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.

The Law School of the NorthCap University has proved to do so by giving preferences to these components and has emerged as one of the premier law Schools in NCR. Keeping in view the overall development and cultivation of legal ability in students, the NCU Law School offers the programmes like Bachelor of Business Administration LL.B. (BBA LLB), Master of Laws (LL.M) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) The LL.M courses are having one year tenure and through electives, students at the NCU, School of Law in LL.M. courses can focus their legal education in areas including corporate law and Human rights Law.
The NCU provides facilities and services that are unmatched in size, quality, and beauty. the campus features a comfortable, inviting learning environment with student study space, high-tech classrooms, great appellate and trial courtrooms, rich law library and the State –of –The –Art infrastructural facilities. It also has a variety of journals, one such journal is the NCU Law Review.

Very recently, the very fact of excellence in imparting education has been studied and researched, under the National Institutional ranking Framework (NIRF) by Union Ministry of Human Resource Development in which the Northcap University has been ranked among top 100 Universities in India. Moreover, the NCU has procured the 4th rank in all Private universities in North India and happens to be the only private university in Haryana and NCR region to be placed in top hundred. 

As far as the Law School of NCU is concerned, it has procured the first rank in the recently conducted GHRDC survey in Haryana. Certainly, such certification of highest rank owes to the contribution of proportionate blending of Teaching, Training and Research, contribution of renowned faculty members who hail from top ten premier law institutes in India and the conducive environment at the campus.

Thus, NCU Law School is committed towards developing the student's overall ability keeping in view the needs & demands of the present day legal world which are at par with the global scene.

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.
