How does it address the contemporary needs?

The syllabus has been created while keeping in mind the fast-changing nature of the society.

It seeks to develop leadership capacities in students through a sound understanding of history, political science, international relations philosophies and jurisprudence, various aspects of socio-psychology, demands of trade, economics, humanity and human development and their interdisciplinary relations.

How does it meet future demands at work place?

The overall structure of the BA LLB (Honors) program has been specially developed to provide students with fundamental knowledge and skills necessary to pursue any of specialization. This course provides the foundation skills required for further study, critical thinking and practical application.
Law aims at maintaining social order for welfare of the society and as they say, law is a product of society and not vice versa. At IILM Law School, we strive to give a comprehensive understanding of varied legal theoretical works. This course enables the students to understand the application of legal theories in various new contexts and complex situations. Such an understanding of Law helps students to review, administer, analyze and interpret statutes and precedents in their work contexts. This program is a professional course which also entitles students to register for enrolment as a legal practitioner with the Bar Council of their respective States. For a graduate of BA LLB (Honors), a plethora of avenues for growth are open and he can also explore compatibilities in a working environment (both lucrative and exciting). One can become a practitioner of law in multidisciplinary fields, do policy advocacy, become a development worker filling in the gap between the public and the government, get involved in policy advocacy at the grassroots, work in international treaty-making through various INGOs and multilateral organizations, work in the field of human rights, work in the judiciary, in the Courts both as public prosecutors or as advocates or as in-house counsels.
