Advisory Board - School of Law
Legal careers assume greater importance today because of the following global developments:
- Complex rules in the use of technology
- Pace of globalization
- International trade
Legal education must change in response to these developments. School of Law responds to these changes through its courses and teaching practices. It seeks to think creatively and strategically about its role in legal education and law reform in India.
An increasing number of law graduates prefer to practice outside the traditional professional roles of advocate and solicitor, preferring to move into a wide range of careers: business partnerships, management, politics, civil service, diplomacy, social works, philanthropy, consultancies, teaching and research – all of them contributing to the well being of the community in many different ways.
The School aims to equip law students for these avenues by providing experience based legal education, that promotes intellectual breadth, analytical skills and an ethical sense of role and purpose of lawyers in society.
Our faculty is drawn from academia, the legal profession and the corporate world that have national and international qualifications. The faculty with its strong tradition of teaching and research in the common law represent principles that legal education seeks to bring to the legal profession.
Teaching and Learning
School of Law follows three important steps to achieve the right training for its law students:
- It offers bridging law courses from first year so students have a chance to study law in the context of society, trade, industry and commerce right from the first year of the program.
- The design and the contents of bridging courses in humanities, or commerce, or business management integrate these courses with law and legal practice.
- The Legal Clinics program is offered right from the first year
The faculty facilitates clinical and problem-based learning approaches, as well as skills development. This structure permits an opportunity for law students to participate, share ideas, experiment and innovate. Through its teaching methods, the faculty encourages students to become active participants in the learning process.
Our law students learn through:
- Classroom discussions
- Hands-on experience via externships and clinical programs
- Participation in a range of student organizations and extramural activities
Student assessment emphasizes on individual autonomy, creativity, and academic freedom. Assessments include written assignments and class presentations.
Legal Thinking, Pedagogy and Teaching Methods
The School is dedicated to legal education and research in many ways. The School:
- provides students with a strong foundation in the rule of law in the common language of lawyers
- builds upon the diversity and depth of the law curriculum by adding courses in emerging fields of specialization
- provides practical skills training in advocacy, alternative dispute resolution, legal research and writing, problem solving and ethics
- ensures that students are exposed to theoretical and critical perspectives on the law
- attracts the best teaching and research faculty and promote student involvement in national and global research initiatives
- works to gather the resources necessary to support these initiatives
Professional Legal Training
School of Law offers Legal Clinics and Legal Aid programs. The plan behind the Legal Clinics and Legal Aid programs is two-fold:
- Hands-on experience will familiarize students with court procedures so they understand classroom theory much better
- Court experience will train students to be job-ready to work with law firms or as in-house counsels with corporations or as advisors to the government
As with all professional programs, zeroing in on the practical application of the course is important. For law students this requires knowledge of court procedures, court documentation, and the role of lawyers in delivering justice to clients.
The Legal Clinics and Legal Aid programs train students in both the theory and practice of laws such as Trademarks, Patents and Copyright Law, Motor Vehicle Accidents and Personal Injury Claims, plus Civil Procedure (under the Code of Civil Procedure 1908) and Criminal Procedure (under the Code of Criminal Procedure 1973).
Legal Clinics program allows students to train with practicing lawyers in the court.
Legal Aid program trains third year students to give advice to clients who cannot afford to see a lawyer for a number of reasons such as high lawyer’s fees, lack of knowledge about their claims, situated at long distance from the courts.
