About the Organization
The primary objective of the University is to evolve and impart comprehensive and interdisciplinary legal education that is socially relevant. Through this education, we aim to promote legal and ethical values and foster the rule of law and the objectives enshrined in the Constitution of India. Furthermore, the University works toward dissemination of legal knowledge and its role in national development, so that the ability to analyse and present contemporary issues of public concern and their legal implications for the benefit of the public is improved. These processes strive to promote legal awareness in the community and to achieve political, social and economic justice.
Many believe that the path of liberalization we embarked upon in the early 90s unleashed India’s potential. Undoubtedly the country has undergone vast changes in all spheres and we see a more confident India asserting itself on the global stage. However, this progress has come with very significant challenges to the country. India’s various social classes are yet to be assimilated; their participation in the process of governance remains fractured. Cumulative progress needs to be fair and equitable. And integral to that is a legal system that empowers the marginalized, is just and fair in letter and spirit, and most importantly, does not use the law as a tool of oppression.
Our sincere endeavor is to make legal education justice education, as an instrument of social, political and economic change. Each individual who is part of this institution must be remembered for the promotion of social justice. Our students will not only be shaped as change agents as the country achieves its social and developmental goals, but will also be equipped to address the imperatives of the new millennium and uphold the Constitution of India.

- Governance is considered as an important aspect for promoting environmental conservation and effective management of natural resources. With the advent of the 21st century, significant steps have been taken in the form of legally binding international conventions and soft law dealing with crucial environmental issues at the global level.
- However, the key for dealing with modern day environmental challenges is effective environmental governance not just in the international arena but at the domestic level as well. India as a developing country with rich biodiversity and rapidly changing climate patterns is especially vulnerable to modern day environmental disasters and challenges such as air pollution, climate change, desertification etc.
