The National Law University Odisha (NLUO) promises to be an exciting new development in the field of legal education. A very new institution, its establishing Act of legislature was notified as recently as April 2009 and within a span of four months, classes commenced with the entrance being conducted in May. The University has made a name for itself by earning laurels with excellent performance of its students in various seminars, conferences and moot courts.

NLUO is located in Cuttack, a city dating back to over a thousand years, and also boasting a rich legal heritage – not only is the Orissa High Court situated here, but also some of the finest lawyers and judges of the country trace their roots back to this city.

Currently the University has admitted students from no less than twenty-five States, representing a diverse range of socio-economic, ethnic, religious and cultural backgrounds. We hope that in the years to come, students from even more divers backgrounds will join NLUO, thereby underscoring its truly national character.

I am in my final year of law studies at National Law University Odisha. Our team in Shivpuri(Madhya Pradesh, India) runs a Library-cum-Legal Aid Centre in collaboration with the Municipal Council.

I had recently filed a case in National Green Tribunal(CZB, Bhopal) for the conservation of water bodies in Shivpuri and the Tribunal's strict orders has initiated by conservation efforts in the same region.
