About

The School of Law at The NorthCap University, offers BBALLB (Hons) and LLM. With an objective of providing students with ample scope of clinical legal education and assist them in facing the new challenges and dimensions of the legal profession, School of Law has shown an all-round progress and proved its credentials to be a force to be reckoned with in the field of legal education in the country. School of Law at NCU facilitates legal study as an intellectual discipline, which involves creating an analytical mind, a logical thought process and drafting skills. NCU grooms its young budding lawyers for a wide range of professions, including social science, business and commerce, civil services and international relations etc. apart from hard core legal professions. One of the advantages of studying law at NCU is acquiring breadth and depth of knowledge. In addition to hard core law courses, students are required to undertake foundation courses ranging from economics to accounting, financial management to marketing management, study of society to that of psychology and so on. While choosing courses and academic experiences, the students at law school are given the flexibility to opt for a broad and expanded range of programme elective and open elective courses, thereby giving them the opportunity to face the challenges of the contemporary world. At the same time, the open elective courses offered by other departments add to their scope to have a multidisciplinary approach to law. They may also specialize in a particular area of law, like constitutional law, corporate law, intellectual property rights or international law.

The curriculum has been revised regularly to respond to the demand for new skills and challenges facing law and legal education in the emerging global scenario. There has always been an effort to strengthen the core curriculum to ensure a strong all-round education for the students. Besides, the curriculum has been rationalized in such a way that by the time the students reach the final year, they could complete most of the core law and non-law courses. This is to facilitate more flexibility in the final year for the students to undergo practical training and internships beyond their class hours.

Additionally, clinical legal education in law school provides a unique opportunity for the students to learn not only about the professional skills used by lawyers but also about many other aspects of the curriculum essential for preparation to think and act like a lawyer.
