It is a delight to tell you about NLUO where I have grown as a student, person and professional in the span of 5 years. The five years that I have spent here as a student has been fantastic for a whole host of reasons. This college has inspired me to become a better version of myself. The ultimate aim of the college is to get a degree at the end and I have found that NLUO is a great place to study, not least because it is a university that makes you want to learn. The faculty has been light at the end of every tunnel whom we students follow and find our path. NLUO never fails to motivate its students to take up challenges and inspire them to excel in curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. Whatever in this short span I have achieved, it is because of the teachings and practical knowledge provided by the university.


Name – Titiksha Shrivastava

Designation– Media Lawyer & Actor (Bollywood entertainment Industry.)

Batch: 2012-2017

Email address–

I still remember choosing NLUO over all other University preferences in my CLAT form back then in 2012. This was because the syllabus of NLUO mentioned Media Laws in its course curriculum. I was always an artistic person looking for artistic areas academically and in extracurricular activities. During my 5 years at NLUO I got to experience and explore almost every aspect to everything I wanted to build as my career. From being the cultural committee convenor for two years to getting a pre-placement in a Media law firm in Mumbai, everything at NLUO supported me to excel in the area I am in today. I always believed that there is creativity in law and I always pursued it in my own artistic way & which is why I am dancing succesfully between both these professions today being an actor and an actor’s lawyer as well. During NLUO days i was known for my dance performances and organizing events. Today those college experiences, right academic guidance, support of my professors, staff and seniors. I am able to balance and understand both worlds of a client and a lawyer in the entertainment industry. The kind of exposure I have received at NLUO is priceless and is helping me reach my goals with each passing day. I wish the same for all the students graduating every year from NLUO.

Lots of love and wishes.

NLUO has always been and always will be a huge part of my life. It gave me the elements I required to do the job that I do. NLUO has given me a lot of opportunities not only career-wise but also with respect to personal growth and developing leadership skills. All of this has been instrumental in making me the Army Officer that I am today. Accomplishing one’s dream to be a successful lawyer is completely in one’s own hands and all that the teaching staff can do, is to groom them. It’s not just academic scores that matter, but understanding the principles of law that makes one a good lawyer. With a focused and attentive mind and a willingness to learn and not just enjoy life, one leaves NLUO as a successful lawyer with miles ahead of them. In the Army, it is said that if a junior performs well then it is the credit of the senior who groomed him/her. The same applies to lawyers as well. The success stories of students of NLUO bear testament to this fact. Since the first batch, NLUO has strived hard to build a name for itself in the global arena, and so far, it’s been doing really well. I urge all of my juniors to extract the most out of the facilities available and use the resources to the optimal limit. Hardwork will never keep you waiting for good things, but laziness will. I’m a proud alumnus of this institution and always will be.

My ardor to pursue higher education in law has been a seemingly causal event of what I fondly think of as Edward Lorenz’s Butterfly Effect. In-fact I have a strong conviction that it was the very environment at NLUO, taking her baby steps towards becoming one of the best law schools in the country and embarking on the journey to impart finest legal education, that had slowly culminated into the passion that I feel today, for law as a subject!

The profession of law is noble for the reason that its purpose is to preserve the moral sanctity that binds the society. NLUO has made me become an advocate who has to deal with the greatest possible variety of human relations and has his mettle constantly tried from every direction. The good practices that are taught in the Universiry always reflect in the manner we present the arguments of the parties in front of the Court.

Being the first batch at NLUO, the 5 years that I spent here count as a crucial learning experience for me. My present role in the judicial service found its roots during my BBA LLB days at NLU Odisha. The work ethics that are required in this profession were drilled in during our early days at Nluo. The morning classes, held at the makeshift academic block or the afternoon accounts classes from the mess canteen, instilled within us an enforcer mentality that is still yielding great dividends for all of us. NLUO serves as an excellent incubator for the high flying legal eagles of the country.

I look back to the wonderful time that I have spent in the university, it seems to be a perfect blend of pressure and joy. While the academic curriculum and the co-curricular activities might get hectic at times, the fun fests organized every semester help in relaxing our minds and easeing the pressure. Our university has been consistently ranked in various competitions such as Mooting, Debating, ADR and all of this because of the engaging college culture nurtured by the vibrant student community over the years. I am sure this culture will be preserved by the upcoming batches and the university will achieve laurels in the times to come.

The very presence of a Society of Law and Literature, as the only society researching on the conjecture of law and literature across all Indian Law Colleges of which I am the co-convener, points to the encouraging and supportive traits that National Law University Odisha as an institution of higher learning exhibits.

But the thing that made NLUO stand out from the crowd was its strongresearch-based approach to solving practical problems of society.

Fresh out of school, the prospect of spending half a decade at a place thousands of miles away from home is daunting. Now that I’m well ensconced, it’s daunting to leave. The five-year course of NLU Odisha has been the single most fulfilling experience of my life.

With such a mix, your views are likely to be much well rounded, which is very relevant in a future that is rapidly bending towards T-shaped skill-sets rather than overspecialization.
