Halls of Learning
Academic proficiency is the touchstone of any accomplished legal professional. In recognition of this proposition, the University’s Halls of Learning, popular among students by the name “ACAD BLOCK” provides the requisite infrastructure and the desired ambience needed for quality legal learning. The gates of the Halls of Learning have the Preamble inscribed on them which in a very sub-conscious manner continue to remind the students of the core values of the Indian legal framework. The Halls of Learning include all classrooms, each of which are equipped with projectors and air-conditioners, comfortable faculty offices, which are accessible to the students, the Conference Hall, which has been the venue of the most important symposiums, seminars, conferences and lectures conducted by the University and Moot Court Halls. At a mere three minute brisk walk distance from the Halls of Residence, the Halls of Learning provides the right kind of atmosphere to facilitate holistic education.
The field of law is ever-evolving and even a life devoted to its study is not sufficient to have a complete grasp over all its facets. At NLUJ, the students are given a platform to imbibe the art of its interpretation. The University provides to its students air-conditioned classrooms with comfortable seating arrangement. Each classroom has a slide-projector attached which has reaped immense benefits to the students through the medium of e-learning. The University has some of the most distinguished luminaries as its faculty and with such arrangements the teacher-student interaction and consequent intellectual gain for the students is thoroughly boosted.
Moot Courts & Pre Mooting
For a comprehensive understanding of law, there is need to master not just concept but also its manner and actual practice. By including CREs as a mode of evaluation, the University intends to make them confident, emphatic and competent guardians of law. In furtherance of this objective, two Moot Court Rooms have been made in the Halls of Learning, each of which is an exact replica of the Actual Court. These rooms are used not just during the Court Room Exercises but also during the Anti-Trust Inter-University Moot conducted by the University and during the intra universtiy mooting competitions held on various occasions in the Semester.
It is our strong conviction that learning is not to be confined to classroom learning. The University very pro-actively hosts various seminars, conferences, symposiums and guest lectures on diverse areas of law and contemporary relevance. The venue for all of these is the Conference Hall, which is a spacious Hall which can easily accommodate over 275 people. Given the pro-activity of our Students and professors, the available infrastructure of this Air conditioned, projector equipped Hall is used almost weekly by the University.
The 21st century is that of technology. Acknowledging this new way of life and learning, the University has synchronized its teaching methodology with various online portals like Manupatra and Westlaw which are the online treatises on all facets of law. These have a detailed record of the contemporary developments in law as they store recent judgments. Hence by facilitating the case-law method of teaching the students are given a practical perspective of the concepts which they learn.
Located just behind the office of the Honorable Vice Chancellor, the Board Room is a Hall which can accommodate around 50 people. Fully Air-Conditioned and furnished with a round table, audio-system and projector, the room is used often for conducting some important meetings as regards the University decision making process.

In our nation, good food is what drives us from mere sustenance to thriving. The University has hired two caterers to provide food to its students on a pay-and-eat basis.
