The idea first came to him, thanks to hunger pangs. Hailing from Chandigarh, Aruj Garg initially faced a lot of problem with the kind of food that was served in the college mess or the small eateries that had mushroomed outside the college.

Well, bottom line, after the first year filled with experiences like this, you tend to devise your own survival plan against such disasters, big or small. Here is a glimpse into mine.
It's Monday again! Time to take a look at GyanCentral's weekly law update, where we discuss about the various happenings across law schools and the field of law in general. GyanCentral's Ushnota Paul brings you all the spice! Read on.

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to visit NALSAR for the first time. I have visited a lot of law colleges and NLUs until now, for various reasons, but this was my first visit to NALSAR. The occasion was to judge a moot – a pre-moot for the Willem C. Vis CISG moot court competitions that are held in Vienna and Hong Kong (in case you didn't know, both the Hong Kong and Vienna version of the moots have a common moot problem, many common judges, and a shared mooting culture).
