The College tries to make up this deficiency with the help of visiting faculty. 15 visiting teachers mostly drawn from the local bar render their service in the teaching of the various programs of the College.
Another commendable feature is that the College is organizing extra / remedial classes for the weaker students. Extra classes in spoken English for those deficient in English are really useful as most of the students have their earlier education through vernacular medium and are not able to catch up the teaching in the law College, where the medium of instruction according to the university rule is English.
The College is following self-appraisal scheme devised by the University. There is prescribed form to be filled by the teachers every year, after scrutiny of their forms, Principal discusses with the teacher and keep them informed about the improvements they need to make.

The College may consider taking positive steps to encourage research and paper publication by teachers. One reason for lack of such research activity may be full time teachers are overburdened.
The teaching and Co-curricular activities a modest beginning seems to have been made by some of the teachers, who regularly participate in seminars and conferences and a few paper presentations.
