BMU’s faculty members publish in a wide range of legal aspects.

The BMU provides facilities and extensive academic freedom to support the research. The faculty members and students are encouraged to collaborate and undertake projects with public, private, and non-profit organizations based in India and across the world.
BMU in association with a renowned partner Vahura conducted a research/survey to share the insights with the stakeholders in the legal value chain. The study titled “Decoding the Next-Gen Legal Professional” (the “Study or Survey” ) sets out to capture the practitioner's perspective of the practice of law and the skills required of lawyers in the rapidly transforming legal environment. BML Munjal University (BMU) and Vahura together curated this Survey in June 2020. In total, 208 legal professionals from leading law firms and in-house legal departments, as well as independent practitioners, shared their perspectives on the impact of technology on the legal profession, the skills and attributes required for the next generation lawyer to survive and thrive in our legal ecosystem. The results of this survey were analyzed in-depth before generating this study built on data insights.
