Program Description

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 a 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 on 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.
