Law Programme Overview
Law is crucial because it acts as a guideline that society accepts. Without Law, there would be disagreements between social groups and communities. Law makes it easy and mandatory for people to adopt changes that occur in society. Therefore, it is important that we follow them. However, as time passes and societies change, everything that is accepted by society changes too. So, Legal systems provide clarity, context and guidelines for appropriate consequences.
Laws are a set of rules that bind all people living in a society. They safeguard our general safety and rights and assure citizens against abuses by other people, organisations, and the government itself. Consequently, Law helps citizens by providing general safety and protecting individuals’ liberties and rights, thus ensuring a more equitable society.
In a progressively 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 business management, commerce and policy-making knowledge.
The country’s existing law schools are still focused on theory-based education. However, it is vital to disseminate research and practice-based legal knowledge to students in this rapidly expanding era. Therefore, to ensure that our students approach Law not just as an academic subject to be mastered but as aspiring practitioners learning the craft, we at BMU have structured our curriculum in consultation with top practitioners in the domain.
The curriculum and pedagogy at BMU are centred on innovation, creativity, a multidisciplinary approach, and experiential learning as an approach to achieving excellence.
The School of Law at BMU equips students with a deeper comprehension of the complexity of societal issues. Additionally, it cultivates in its students the ability to address these issues in the future.
The Law must be viewed as a tool for enhancing people’s lives, not just as resolving issues with chaos and order in society. Therefore, we help our students evolve with a multidimensional understanding of Law through the study of history, political science, sociology, and economics in our BBA LLB Hons and B.A., LL.B. (Hons.) law programmes.
We at BMU impart B.B.A., LL.B. (Hons.) in partnership with the School of Management at BMU for students interested in getting an extensive understanding of business and commerce in addition to legal education. Expert instructors from the School of Management introduce students to business and commerce, enabling a fully interdisciplinary approach to understanding 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.
