Gautam Buddha University-which has been legislatively conceived as “a centre of excellence”-has started its ambitious multidisciplinary academic programme with the establishment of its School of Law, Justice & Governance in 2011. It is a university for people who have the ideas that make a difference in the world and who love to bring change. The School envisions to foster advancement of learning, teaching and research in the fields of law, justice and governance.
The five-year integrated BA LLB programme has been running since July 2012. To nurture the spirit of innovation and research the university has started its Ph.D programme in 2016 and LL.M program in 2017.
The ongoing programme of the School attempts to strike a right balance between the compulsory subjects prescribed by the Bar Council of India and subjects underscoring the interface between Law, Justice and Governance. The School aims to blend the theoretical knowledge with practical learning and development of skills and professional attitude through clinical legal education.
As the law is increasingly becoming multifaceted and in certain areas more global, so the students are guided to participate in moot-court practice, debate, essay writing and project works. With this, the School also aims to provide an opportunity to the students to explore the undiscovered nuances of legal profession and to engage in setting new standards in legal education.
The department currently employs highly motivated and dedicated full-time academicians, who have doctoral degrees in various fields of law and social sciences from different reputed universities. The Faculty tries to maintain the balance between the classroom teaching and changing practical approach of law and also prepare our student community for the various law related career opportunities.
The University has started its ambitious multidisciplinary academic programmes with the establishment of its School of Law, Justice & Governance.

The compulsory subjects prescribed by the Bar Council of India are to be taught with subjects underscoring the interface between law, justice and governance.

Throughdivlinical legal education, the aim is to blend the theoretical knowledge with practical learning and the development of skills and right professional attitude. Optional subjects are structured to help the students in opting for the required number of optional subjects not only from the Bar Council of India-designated groups of Constitutional Law, Business Law, Law and Agriculture, Intellectual Property Law, International Law, International Trade Law (WTO Law) but also from a group of subjects covering law-science interface, national security & national security laws, and comparative law. The subjects are shapdiv with great care to make them knowledge and skills-oriented. With this, an endeavour has been made todivater to the complex needs of the society by developing professional skills of students intending to make a career in legal advocacy, management, judicial and other legal services.
