Mooting Achievements for the Academic year

Auditorium and Conference Hall

The New Law College houses a state-of-the-art auditorium named ABHIJEET KADAM AUDITORIUM equipped with modern equipment. It was inaugurated in the presence of Hon'ble Mr. Justice P. Sathasivam (Judge of Supreme Court), Hon'ble Shri K. Venkatapathy (Law Minister, Govt. of Maharashtra), and Hon'ble Smt. Justice V.K. Tahilramani (Judge of Bombay high court).

Aside from the auditorium, we also have a well-furnished conference hall. It serves as a specialized unit for our activities.

We also hold conference meetings to discuss how we can improve individual performances and increase the productivity of our college.


Research Labs

The New Law College has state-of-the-art research labs for driving innovation in the legal industry. These labs give students an opportunity to engage in innovative projects to make the legal-service delivery efficient. The labs have an unbeatable research atmosphere where the focus is on innovation and new discoveries in the legal continuum. Our research scholars conduct rigorous research in these labs to identify problems and work towards improving and implementing effective solutions. They work on discrete legal cases that are presented to the faculty members by courts. From researching the issues and discussing them to preparing a brief for the lawyers to use, they provide complete assistance on these cases.

Undertaking legal research projects and working on them in the research labs provide them hands-on experience at the forefront of legal technology to become prepared for their future careers. By immersing themselves in research works, they learn how they can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of law practice. We have a multitude of invaluable legal resources including various legal databases like Westlaw, Lexis-Nexis, Manupatra, SCC Online, Crimes On-line, etc. to support our research scholars.
