The New Law College is the recipient of ‘A+’ Accreditation (3rd Cycle) by NAAC in 2017. It is also the recipient of the ‘Gold Star Award’ by BCI at its Golden Jubilee Celebrations. NLC is the awardee of the prestigious ‘Best Legal Aid Centre Award-2019’ by Knowledge Steez, New Delhi. The Legal Aid Centre is administered by prominent advocates offering legal services to people in need and has been recognized among the top 10 best Legal Aid Clinics in India.

Moot Court Practices are the lifelines of the students at NLC and to encourage the academic pursuits of law students, the MCS provides practical trial experiences and the real courtroom feel to the students.

Our technology is changing the legal profession and law schools in India; NLC has taken into consideration the new technologies and has established an AI Cell to look upon the latest awareness from the legal point of view.

NLC aims to blend the theoretical and practical learning of law by launching an initiative named ‘GIADRA’ – (Global Initiative for Alternate Dispute Resolution Awareness) under its Madhysthta- the ADR Cell. It aims to synergize the knowledge of ADR professionals across the globe and make it easily accessible to the students in the form of blogs and videos.

The College has established SARALL (Society for Advanced Research & Analysis of Labour Laws.) to enhance the research quality of students in Labour Courts and encourage students to write blogs and to provide dynamic and collaborative learning space both physically and virtually to learn more about labour laws.

At NLC students are groomed to conduct advanced research in intellectual property rights and cyber law through the AETIP & CL cell (Advance Exploration, Training of Intellectual Property and Cyber Law) thereby giving them value-added learning.

Our CCDL (Centre for Community Development through Law) aims to create a forum for learning from each other’s experiences, thereby benefitting the student community.

We are in the third generation of reforms of legal education that demands internationalization of legal education and thus, BVDU NLC has established International Collaborations and Programmes with Universities, Companies/ firms in Hong Kong, Denmark, England & Wales, USA, Paris, Yiag, Malasyia, Switzerland and Thailand. The universal trend of Globalization of Legal Research is adopted and inculcated at NLC.

Students are motivated, trained and assisted to write research papers in national and international journals and blogs such as the Jurist Blog of the University of Pittsburg, School of Law, USA, and books on Amazon, etc. We are committed to developing long-term values of honesty and integrity for our students and making them global lawyers/advocates, attorneys, solicitors, jurists, etc.

Lawyers, I assert, are social engineers having the power and the ability to bring positive change into society. Hard work is the key to success and hard work accompanied with patience bears the positive fruits of success.

I invite you to embark upon your spirited journey in the picturesque green, lush and serene environment of Bharati Vidyapeeth and the magical surroundings of Pune, which is popularly known as the Oxford of the East.
