Vice Chancellor's Message

Legal education, across the globe has a unique place in academics. Today a Law graduate shall be equipped with adequate knowledge, skills and confidence to make a choice to embrace the field beyond traditional litigation sector. Globalization and Information Technology have opened the floodgates of opportunities in all sectors including legal service. Today, Law Schools are compelled to change their approach in content, delivery and mindset to meet the demands of the students and the profession. Premeir law schools are endeavoring very hard to meet these demands.

Warm Welcome, let’s grow together!
