The University’s wholehearted endeavors have been primarily focused on: consolidation of academic learning; inculcation of the highest ethical standards in our talented students; honouring the canonical legacy of legal systems while contributing pro-actively towards its timely metamorphosis; driving academic innovation and transforming the sphere of education for a prismatic future.
The University premises its entire academic and research endeavor around its purposeful motto ‘Knowledge is Empowerment’. The cornerstones that provide the foundation of our educational mission are the life of the mind, participatory learning, interdisciplinary inquiry, and an education for future leaders. Located on an aesthetically congenial residential campus in the Blue City of India, the University offers a rigorous and interdisciplinary professional education that blends the study of law with humanities and social sciences, and management. Students, faculty, and staff form a small, tightly knit community devoted to the life of the intellectual inquiry and rigour.The teaching pedagogy is innovative and prolegomenous aiming to create scholars who can carve their own paths and build upon the instruction offered to them through a host of resources and platforms.
Our teaching pedagogy intermixes convention with innovation- with each teacher having the liberty to chart the academic trajectory of the course administered and training scholars to analyse and rationalize, to critique and reform, to examine the micro as well as macro aspects of a problem, to argue fluidly and pen fluently, using cutting edge technology and access to some of the most fecund global legal databases.

Synchronously, the faculty members are concerned with the interaction between law and society in a myriad of ways, and draw on economics, cultural studies, public policy, feminist theory, history, political science, management, and other disciplines.
