Placed strategically at Kochi, it offers an environment for study not too far from fun. Life at NUALS is never complacent or tardy with the student life kept abuzz with activities, both academic and co-curricular. The University serves host to a serious of events ranging from Philip C Jessup International Moot Court Competition to Altus Disputatio, one of the premier debate competitions in the Country. However, our magnum opus is undoubtedly ‘Naalam’ which indeed ignites the flame within each and every member of the NUALS family.
    NUALS serves as a host unlike other with its exceptional hospitality, making every single guest of hers feel at home the moment they set foot in Kochi. We promise you, every single person out there, come to NAALAM and you will never regret. This will be an experience with no parallels,a true once in a life time experience.
