  • It’s indeed great that such an acclaimed academician has been appointed as the VC at NLU Assam.

    Considering his tenure as the Professor in-charge of Law Centre 1, Faculty of Law, the University of Delhi, he has demonstrated outstanding leadership in managing one of the biggest and the best law school of India without compromising on his teaching and research outcomes. Teachings and research, generally, is taken for granted by those who adorn administrative positions in Indian setup for obvious reasons. But that is not the case with Prof. Ahuja.

    As his students, we find ourselves fortunate to be under his tutelage.

    I believe, and wish, that under his leadership NLU Assam will overcome the shortcomings of past, consolidate its past gains and strengthen it’s future by engaging the best academicians of the country and the world and will improve its research outcomes.

    Best Wishes to Prof. Ahuja and NLU Assam family.
