Learning is through a combination of textbooks, classroom tuition, discussions, seminars, and research project. The Library "GyanMandir" has a very rich collection of books, journals (national and international), e-resources like Manupatra, AIR, SCC, Hein online, Lexis Nexis, etc. It publishes three journals of its own, i.e., Indian Law Review, NLIU Journal of Intellectual Property Law and NLIU Law Review.
