Speaking about the NMIMS-LAT 2021 announcement, Dr. Ramesh Bhat, Vice Chancellor, SVKM’s NMIMS University, said, “The field of law is a challenging and competitive space that requires a sharp mind and unique skills. At our NMIMS Schools of Law, we want to provide students with the best-in-class legal education replete with fluent verbal and written advocacy abilities. Our law schools are also determined to guide all students to become the best in their field, and excel at translating their knowledge of legal theory into actual practice.”
Elaborating on the NMIMS-LAT 2021 announcement, Dr. Alok Misra, Dean, NMIMS Kirit P. Mehta School of Law and NMIMS Schools of Law, said, “Approved by the Bar Council of India, our law schools aim to nurture the best minds in the domain. Through our innovative pedagogy, which incorporates case study models and class-debate methods, we want to instil in our students a sense of professionalism and ethical legal excellence. To further help students put legal theory into practice, we also incorporate compulsory credit-based Internships and Moot Court as subjects.”
Law has always served as the bedrock for human civilisation and today, it transcends geo-political boundaries and is part of all kinds of socio-political and economic transactions worldwide. In India, law professionals are constantly needed at the national, state and local level to discern legalities and understand the transition from old laws to new ones. Thus, a sound legal education that helps students to learn and interpret the basic principles of Indian and international law, and develop powerful legal reasoning skills, is a necessity.
All NMIMS Schools of Law are equipped with top-notch infrastructure that includes well-equipped library facilities, online databases, e-learning modules, seminar halls, moot court rooms, computer labs, and digital English language labs to promote holistic education and help students engage in self-learning. The faculty and campus facilities work in tandem to ensure that students are given the best possible legal education.
For students desirous of pursuing research avenues and publishing quality papers in reputed peer-reviewed journals, the campuses also have research labs. Most importantly, all NMIMS legal schools have a fully functional Legal Aid Clinic and a Placement Support Team for taking care of a learner’s interaction with the outside world.
