NAAC – Internal Quality Assurance Cell


The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) conducts assessment and accreditation of Higher Educational Institutions (HEI). NAAC evaluates the institutions for its conformance to the standards of quality in terms of its performance related to the educational processes and outcomes, curriculum coverage, teaching-learning processes, faculty, research, infrastructure, learning resources, organization, governance, financial well being, and student services. The quality enhancement is a continuous process; the NAAC proposes that every accredited institution should establish an Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) as a post-accreditation quality sustenance measure. By realizing the importance of the goals of quality enhancement and sustenance, our college has constituted Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) on 30th Sept. 2005 to ensure the quality in every activities of the College.

After establishment of IQAC in the College, the first achievement/milestone in this direction was that the College in the first cycle of accreditation received B++ level by NAAC in 2005. The achievement of this accreditation was due to our successful endeavour towards reaching our vision i.e. “To be the premier law college in the state by achieving a high order of excellence in teaching and training. To be the first choice of student seeking education in law”. Again we went through the second cycle of Accreditation wherein we secured “B” grade in 2011.
