Law Programme Overview
Law has traditionally been perceived as an autonomous discipline having distinctive styles and methods. Unlike the traditional focus of lawyers with ‘black letter law’, the modern legal ecosystem demands a different approach. For lawyers, judges and lawmakers to truly appreciate the depth of laws, it is imperative to have an inter-disciplinary approach.
In an increasingly complex and interconnected world where efforts to understand and define the changing dynamics of economic, technological and financial environments are already underway, lawyers need to equip themselves with additional knowledge of business management, commerce and policymaking.
Existing law schools in the country are still oriented towards theory-based learning, whereas the need of the hour is the dissemination of practical and research-based legal knowledge. We have developed our curriculum in consultation with leading practitioners in the field to ensure that our students approach law not merely as an academic subject to be mastered but as budding practitioners learning the skills of the trade.
This is the BMU method of striving for excellence through a curriculum and pedagogy based on innovation, creativity, multidisciplinary approach and experiential learning. BMU’s School of Law offers a higher level of understanding of the complex nature of the problems in society and develops the capacity in its students to provide solutions to these problems in the years to come.
The law needs to be looked at not merely as a solution to the problems of chaos and order in society but as a tool for the enhancement of the lives of individuals. In our B.A., LL.B. (Hons.) program we facilitate our students to build a multi-dimensional approach to understanding law through the study of history, political science, sociology and economics.
For students interested in gaining a deeper knowledge of business and commerce along with legal education, we offer B.B.A., LL.B. (Hons.) in collaboration with the School of Management at BMU. Students are introduced to business and commerce by expert faculty from the School of Management, facilitating a truly interdisciplinary approach to learning law.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, BML Munjal University is fully operational with the Day Scholar facility for their Law programme for 2020. For Law students, this facility is currently available for the First-year students only. Availing the hostel would be mandatory for students, second year onwards. Buses will ply from Delhi, Gurgaon & Faridabad. This will be available at an additional cost. For more details click here

Welcome to the School of Law! In 2014, BML Munjal University started with the motto of cultivating ethical leaders for the future: leaders in society, politics, and industry, equipped to shape responses to rapid socio-economic, technological, and environmental change. Lawyers are integral to that vision. They interpret and shape the very rules setting out the grammar of our social existence. At the School of Law, we foster conditions for young minds to grow into scientifically minded and constitutionally rooted lawyers with a forward-looking and ethical approach.
Situated in a truly multi-disciplinary context, pedagogy at the School of Law is authentically interdisciplinary. Our curriculum is designed in ways where law courses speak to each other, as well as to courses across the university. They explore connections and unravel patterns between disciplines. Given our firm belief that emerging challenges to humanity require increasing collaboration between the natural sciences, law, and other disciplines, we offer introductory and advanced courses that equip our students on several fronts: with scientific knowledge relevant for legal policy, technological competence essential to practice law, entrepreneurial skills to create better futures, and constitutional orientation to entrench our common humanity.
None of this is possible unless, in the words of our founding Dean, we temper them in the crucible of practice. Our courses are delivered both by academics and practitioners. With the best legal minds of the country as advisors, and excellent faculty members collaborating with practitioners, we make experiential learning genuine. Students at the School of Law work with real cases and materials in their path to becoming lawyers with high professional competence. Our exams are open-book, and our internship programme is of unprecedented rigor. We live up to the belief that spending time in working conditions does not guarantee experience, doing tasks with a reflective approach does. The heart of the School of Law undoubtedly is its students. Despite our faculty and Ph.D. scholars engaging in fundamental as well as contemporary research, we realize that legal education in India is primarily undergraduate. Our priority, therefore, is a ‘personalized’ education with effective mentoring. With our emphasis on quality over numbers, we provide individualized attention to each undergraduate student.
We look forward to welcoming you as a member of this exceptional journey.
