Introduction
National Law School is located in Nagarbhavi, a western suburb of Bangalore. It has consistently been marked as the top law school in India. What sets apart NLSIU from the newer law schools, with better infrastructure and facilities, is its unique social fabric. The researcher has made an attempt to provide a microscopic view of this sophisticated environment and provide a keyhole-peep to an outsider to the hectic, chase-at-your-own peril pace of the best law school in India.Symbiosis Law School, in Pune, has been the best private law college since its inception in 1977. The college is known for its diverse and rich culture. The study intends to highlight the dynamics which take place within and outside the symbiosis campus in regard to the students. The two institutions are a study in contrast with differing cultural end-products. The study, apart from looking into the factors which cause these differences from the sociological perspective, will prove to be beneficial to prospective law students in making an informed decision while choosing their preferred institute, rather than relying on industry or brand value only.

Research Methodology

Aims: To conduct a survey among the students of National Law School and Symbiosis Law School in order to discover the factors which regulate student behaviour in the respective institutions and analyze their extent of influence. Objectives: The main objective of this study is to highlight the factors which are the cause of the distinct differences in behavioural trend among the students of NLS and SLS. This study will also help prevent any form of ‘cultural shock’ that a prospective student may encounter. Scope and limitations:

The scope of this project extends to the interpretation of the respective environments of the two institutes from various sociological angles like those of accommodation, socialisation and deviance. The major limitations faced by the researcher were

1.The collection of empirical data from Symbiosis Law School. 2.The absence of prior experience in a study of this nature coupled with constraints of time and resources which limited the researcher’s access to literature. Method of Writing:

The method of writing adopted is analytical.

Mode of Citation:
NLS uniform citation has been followed.

Interaction of Students with their Environment

Holland’s theory of choice of vocational subjects/fields provides a potent framework for analyzing students’ college experiences. His theory combines psychological factors (students' personality types) with that of sociological factors (the attributes of academic disciplines) to reproduce a model of person-environment fit which may be utilized for the explanation of student development as affected by the college. The premise upon which Holland’s theory rests is that a person may be classified as one or more of the following six personality types: realistic, investigative, artistic, social, enterprising and conventional. Another component of Holland’s theory is the environment. There are six parallel environments corresponding to the six personality types and complement them. The final component of Holland's theory is the interplay of personality types and environments....
