ITM University, School of Law

Introduction

The ITM Law School is a next generation Law School established with the object of providing world class legal education, which aims at preparing legal professionals who will play decisive leadership roles, not only as advocates practicing in courts, but also as academics, legislators, judges, policy makers, public officials, civil society activists as well as legal counsel in the private sector, maintaining the highest standards of professional ethics and a spirit of public service.

The Hon’ble President of India Smt. Pratibha Devisingh Patil, at the inauguration of the National Law School of Delhi University on September 3, 2008 highlighted that “…We are living in challenging times when tremendous changes are taking place in the world. Legal systems have to cope with the impact of 21st century technologies in the fields of Information Technology, bio-technology, medicine and intellectual property. Business and commerce now operate in an international environment. Legal education must equip law professionals to meet the new challenges and dimensions of functioning in a globally integrated world. Expertise in international law and knowledge about legal systems in other countries is still lacking in our country. Law courses must take international and comparative law perspectives in the syllabi along with necessary understanding of domestic law…”

The Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh while inaugurating the Conference of National consultation for Second Generation Reforms in Legal Education in New Delhi on May 1, 2010 rightly pointed out that “…the most challenging tasks in legal education in India is to strike a proper balance to ensure that our students are taught a fair mix of courses that give them knowledge and training in Indian law, but at the same time prepare them for facing the challenges of globalization, where domestic legal mechanisms interact with both international and foreign legal systems. This interaction is going to deepen in the years to come and our law schools must prepare themselves to face this challenge…”

Knowing thoroughly well that today, legal education has to meet not only the requirements of the Bar and the new needs of trade, commerce and industry but also the requirements of globalization, ITM LAW SCHOOL will ensure academic excellence and prepare legal professionals, equipped to meet the new challenges and dimensions of internationalization, where the nature and organization of law and legal practice are undergoing a paradigm shift. ITM Law School's commitment to rigorous and exciting legal training is intimately connected to the ITM University's commitment to path breaking scholarship. Using a wide range of methodologies and bringing to bear insights from numerous other academic disciplines, the faculty of ITM Law School will plumb the depths of everything.

ITM Law School will be a place of continual activity and unrelenting vitality. The array of experiences and opportunities the Law School will offer; the range of academic and extracurricular activities along with a variety of faculty and students will make each day a potential adventure for each and every student at ILS.

LLM The premise of our approach to graduate legal education is that no matter whatever their level of exposure to law, our graduates will practice in a global environment. We have designed the curriculum to sensitize our graduate students to the normative and professional challenges globalization entails and to equip them with the relevant tools to enable them to approach the law in a more encompassing, universally-aware manner. Students benefit from an unmatched selection of course content, seminars, practical experiences and opportunities to engage in intellectual projects at the highest level. At present, we are offering an LL.M. degree with specialization in Human Rights Law. In future, we propose to provide LL.M. degree in areas like Corporate Law; Intellectual Property Rights Law, Environmental Law; etc. Keeping in view the interest of the legal academia, besides regular course curriculum, we lay a great emphasis in equipping the students with innovative teaching skills which would ultimately pave the way to become excellent teachers. In addition, the programme is beneficial to those who want to expand their legal understanding and secure strategic decision making roles in major NGOs as well as Human Rights lawyering. The objective of the course is to enable students primarily through research, presentation, discussion and writing, to acquire a thorough knowledge of, and an ability to critically analyze, the theory and the law of human rights protection at the national, regional and international levels. By the end of the course, students should have: overall awareness of the history and theory of human rights in law; detailed knowledge of the relevant provisions of the Constitution, national laws and judicial pronouncement on Human Rights and its enforcement mechanism as well as international human rights instruments and mechanism; familiarity with specialised tools and resources for research into human rights law.

BBA-LLB (Hons) The innovatively conceived 5 year integrated B.B.A.LL.B. (Honours) Degree Program of ITM Law School integrates the study of law with management in a semester mode for enhancing the employability of ITM Law Students and for a stress free legal education in an era of specialty and super specialty subjects. This five year program gives students the intellectual foundations for legal study, and gives them the opportunity to focus their studies on areas of particular interest through advanced classes, clinics, moot courts and writing projects. ITM Law School had adopted the "clinical method" for exposing "the student to actual problems confronting him with actual people who are in actual trouble". Through clinical courses, students of ITM Law School are exposed not only to lawyering skills but also the essential values of the legal profession: provision of competent representation; promotion of justice, fairness, and morality; continuing improvement of the profession; and professional self-development. Getting a job after graduation is a real challenge, especially when one doesn’t have any work experience. The irony is: to get work experience one must first get a job. We consider ‘Internship’ as the only solution for this. Hence internship at ITM Law School is mandatory and is the main strategy for improving the ‘employability’ of our students. Internship at ITM Law School is compulsory for every student of B.B.A.LL.B. (Honours) Degree Program. The Students of ITM Law School will get enviable opportunities to intern at various institutions/Law firms / Courts / Banks / MNCs / Insurance Companies, etc., and to intern with eminent Lawyers and Judges. The Academic Calendar and the internship program of ITM Law School are designed very diligently to ensure that the students of ITM Law School will have an edge over students studying in other law schools.
