The barbaric gang-rape case of a student of the National Law School of India University (NLSIU), Bangalore in October last year, on the vast Jnanabharathi campus, within which NLSIU is situated; made the entire country sit up and take notice. The traumatised 21-year-old victim has now eventually decided to discontinue her law school studies and return to her hometown in Nepal.
Hon'ble Justice Mr. D. Murugesan correctly remarked that legal education is an investment, which, if wisely made, will produce most beneficial results for the nation and accelerate the pace of development. Most importantly in any nation, legal education has to play an emphatic role in protecting the rule of law and the future of a democracy. The role of law schools in creating warriors of law is unparalleled. A lot has been talked about the National Law schools so far. Now let's examine "the good, the bad and the ugly" about a college which has carved a niche for itself among the legal fraternity since its inception. Akshay Pathak, a second-year student of Amity Law School, Delhi talks about his college.
They wear black cloaks. They have a bitter grin. They are the stark sharks. They are lawyers. That was the archaic notion of lawyers. Today in the 21st century, when the American president can wear shorts and play golf and theatre actors can be a Parliamentarian, the range of vocation for every personnel has changed. The same change has affixed itself with the legal profession.

LSAT-India 2013 (Law School Admission Test) is designed by USA based Law School Admission Council (LSAC) for use by law schools in India, and is conducted by Pearson VUE, LSAC's affiliate. It is perhaps the most dreaded amongst the Law tests, because unlike CLAT, AILET or other important law entrance exams in India, LSAT doesn't offer various sources or materials to prepare from. Nobody can predict the LSAT pattern as it is said to randomly change each year. LSAT was conducted yesterday, May 19, 2013 in various centres across India. Gyancentral's Ushnota Paul took a review of the exam from students walking out of the 2 hour 20 minutes long examination.

At the outset, let me thank HNLU for (finally) preparing a not-so-controversial paper. Formalities aside, though going by the smart drafting of the notification which contained the paper pattern, it was pretty much certain that HNLU can draft any kind of a paper and they would not come in the firing ling (unlike CLAT 2012), they still deserve full credit for meticulous drafting (I'll come to the Mathematics questions later!) and quality of questions.
