Completed my LLB in 2020 from Lords Universal College of Law. Right from admission to the Degree Distribution Ceremony, the journey has been very smooth. The various events like Moot Courts, Guest Lectures, extracurricular activities, etc , were very beneficial in shaping me. Guest Lectures wherein prominent legal personalities shared their insights were indeed inspiring. The practical insights, visions, experiences and knowledge that were shared with the students motivated them to excel and helped them to work towards sharpening their skills. The faculties have always been supportive, especially the head of the institution, and their collective efforts have not only inspired me to do my research and self-study aer classes but also helped me to excel in academics. The learning experience was truly interesting and worthwhile

I had Regulatory exposure while working with the “Apex Capital Market regulator” for nearly two decades. However, I needed to hone my skill set relating to understanding law. Therefore, aer considering many factors such as infrastructure, especially a sophisticated moot court hall, experienced faculties, supporting staff and suitable timing for a working professional, I chose Lords Universal College of Law to pursue my long cherished dream. It was an enriching experience indeed at LUCL as I built a professional network, honed up moot court skills, got exposure by attending seminars and also participated in various legal fests organised by other renowned institutions. I think I was able to complete my course due to the continuous encouragement that I received from Principal Madam, or else it would have been very tough for a working professional like me. Life at LUCL was all about reinventing myself. It paved the way for learning new things, discovering various options and striving toward accomplishing them.

A Journey to Cherish for Life

LUC Law has been instrumental in shaping me into a conscientious and competent legal professional ready to make a positive impact in society. Throughout my journey at LUC Law, I found inspiration in the unwavering dedication and vision of our esteemed Principal Dr. Sameena Hasan Ma'am. Her leadership and guidance resonated in every aspect of my academic and personal development. Her words of wisdom instilled in me a profound sense of purpose and drive and I learned the importance of integrity, perseverance, and empathy in the pursuit of legal excellence

Under the mentorship of my beloved professors of LUC Law, I not only gained knowledge but also developed a profound respect for the noble profession. The culmination of my hard work and the efforts of our dedicated professors came as I approached the graduation day. Honoured with a Gold in academics, standing on the stage alongside our Principal Madam I reflected on the transformative journey at LUC Law that had brought me to this point. As I embark on the next chapter of my life, I carry with me the lessons learned, memories cherished, bonds of friendships cemented and most significantly the enthusiasm to make a difference in the world.

The entire learning environment makes it easy for a student to learn and inculcate the spirit to stand out amongst talented and hard-working students. What amazes me is the plethora of extracurricular activities that the institute offers, hence compelling every student to explore and nourish their extra talents. The institute manages these aspects exceptionally well, and a student always finds himself in a pool of never-ending opportunities, be it studies, moot courts or other research activities. Another very significant aspect is the Principal, Lectures and staff of the college are approachable, helpful and devoted, and the Professors that impart quality education to the students. Never can a student find himself lost in a concept and professors unable to rescue him. The institute’s library is the ultimate answer to all our queries regarding books, papers, periodicals and helping staff.

It gives me great pleasure to say with pride that I have completed my LL B from Lords Universal College of Law. The relationship between faculty and students was very cordial, which allowed me not only to excel in my studies but to meet and make new friends for life. The three years spent here were splendid and have helped me to grow better professionally & personally.

It isn’t easy to sum up the memories and experiences of the past three years in a few lines. I consider myself very fortunate to be a part of this renowned institute which was not only motivational but had a special feature of building & developing strong bonds that helped me progress in life. It was this environment which inspired us to study and enjoy co-curricular activities. All the professors were very helpful; they guided us all the time. One can find good mentors here. Different events like Moot Courts, Guest sessions and Court Visits have boosted my confidence which I can experience at my workplace now. It has been an unforgettable journey. I have spent the most wonderful days of my life in this college.

It has been worth spending three years to gain a positive aspect of personal and professional grooming. The experience has broadened my horizon and changed my view about many things. Joining LUCL was the best decision I made. I want to thank all the faculty members and staff for making me a better person and professional

I have been a student at Lords Universal College of Law for 5 years in the 5-year BLS LLB course, and from what I have experienced, I can tell you it is a great law school. The teachers are very reasonable and fair. The staff is excellent, and the rules help keep the law school safe and in order. There is an equal balance of learning and reviewing the information so that everyone gets what is to be done, and there’s tutoring if we need it. There are many opportunities for the students. I like that the law school has many activities available for students. There are various law societies and clubs, and the teachers make the assignments/ projects/ moot court fun with an awesome learning experience. I have passed out in the year 2021 and am currently working as a Legal Associate at a Law Firm in Dubai. I am forever indebted to my law school for shaping me as a legal professional and into what I am today
