Objectives and Vision
The primary objective of the University is to evolve and
impart comprehensive and interdisciplinary legal education that is socially
relevant. Through this education, we aim to promote legal and ethical values
and foster the rule of law and the objectives enshrined in the Constitution of
India. Furthermore, the University works toward dissemination of legal
knowledge and its role in national development, so that the ability to analyse
and present contemporary issues of public concern and their legal implications
for the benefit of the public is improved. These processes strive to promote
legal awareness in the community and to achieve political, social and economic
Many believe that the path of liberalization we embarked upon in the early 90s unleashed India’s potential. Undoubtedly the country has undergone vast changes in all spheres and we see a more confident India asserting itself on the global stage. However, this progress has come with very significant challenges to the country. India’s various social classes are yet to be assimilated; their participation in the process of governance remains fractured. Cumulative progress needs to be fair and equitable. And integral to that is a legal system that empowers the marginalised, is just and fair in letter and spirit, and most importantly, does not use the law as a tool of oppression.
Our sincere endeavor is to make legal education justice education, as an instrument of social, political and economic change. Each individual who is part of this institution must be remembered for the promotion of social justice. Our students will not only be shaped as change agents as the country achieves its social and developmental goals, but will also be equipped to address the imperatives of the new millennium and uphold the Constitution of India.
