MANAV RACHNA UNIVERSITY
About Faculty of Law
With the emergence of cutting edge technologies, social tools, and interconnected communities, the study of law has transgressed its traditional spheres of influence and assumed importance in a multitude of domains. At the Faculty of Law, Manav Rachna University (MRU), we understand this transdisciplinary application of legal knowledge by offering practice-driven and application based legal education.
While the study of law is intellectually stimulating, personally fulfilling, and financially rewarding, we understand that a well-trained lawyer has to appreciate the issues involved comprehensively and may have to dwell into scientific studies and other disciplines of social sciences. With this understanding, our professors aim at providing an experiential learning platform to students with a focus on clinical legal education, case study methodologies, academia-industry-legal profession integration, and holistic professional development.
The Faculty of Law at Manav Rachna University is delighted to be a Foundation Member of the LSAC Global Law Alliance – a group of colleges and universities that provide the highest quality legal education to India’s future lawyers. We offer 5-year Integrated Honors Law Programs in three streams, B.A. LL.B. (Hons.), B.B.A. LL.B. (Hons.), B.Com. LL.B. (Hons.); LL.M. (1 year/2 year) and Ph.D. Our students get numerous opportunities to acquire legal and life skills. With an emphasis on multidisciplinary learning, law students at MRU are provided with an environment where they are exposed to disciplines beyond law. Besides strictly complying with the rules of legal education prescribed by the Bar Council of India (BCI), the Faculty of Law also offers supplementary subjects like environmental studies, foreign languages and optional seminar courses.
The teaching pedagogy employed at MRU stresses upon practical training and case-law discussions, which makes students understand the basic philosophy and rationale behind the law. Tutorials, moot court exercises, workshops, conferences and seminars complement classroom learning. Mandatory internships provide students with an insight into what it is like to practice law in its different forms and make an informed choice on after-university legal careers. Students also have the option to avail student-exchange programs in international universities having collaborations with MRU.
