Overview

Jagan Nath University, under the aegis of Jagan Nath Gupta Memorial Educational Society, upholds the Society credo of Discipline, Dedication and Determination. To the hilt, It is a new and young University whose vibrancy and youthful outlook is reflected in its course curriculum, its attitude towards students and the overall ambiance. In its short stint of operations, it has made a mark with innovative training methods and a strong emphasis on practical exposure to the students. Ample opportunity towards Co-curricular & Extra Curricular activities makes for a healthy and stress free environment. The University is dedicated to create a new breed of dynamic and future Law Graduates who will be in a position to use the knowledge acquired here towards the creation of a better society and indeed, a brighter future for themselves.

Law school teaches you to open your mind and think differently. This type of training is valuable in any career. Today, law is the pathway to financial rewards, intellectual stimulation, prestige, family influence, social change & career flexibility and above all acquiring a knowledgeable position in the existing society.

Distinct edge

BA.LLB/ BBA.LLB is a Five years integrated programme, spread over ten semesters. Though the primary method of instruction is classroom lectures, we give a lot of emphasis on practical training, research and self-study. We also conduct several guest lectures, seminars, symposia where top professionals in the legal profession, academicians, judges and Lawyers are invited to speak on various contemporary issues so that our students get exposure to the real and diverse aspects of the profession thereby providing wider exposure to substantial and procedural Laws. The classrooms are spacious, well equipped with latest technological amenities and the well equipped library having all important journals, periodicals and reference as well as text books authored by experts of all important subjects. Great importance is given to the practical aspect of the theoretical foundation.

Objective of the Programme:

To produce competent Advocates, Law Schools are expected to impart quality education so that their foundation should be strong. It is well known facts that many people get LL.B. degree but hardly few of them are in a position to be successful as practising Advocates. Keeping in view this aspect Bar Council of India has introduced LL.B. 5 years integrated course after Higher Secondary and which is showing better results at least in few leading Law Schools and Law Universities mainly due to the fact that the Bar Council of India has framed an comprehensive syllabus in which all related disciplines namely, Sociology, Psychology, Political Science, History, Economics having relevance in the legal profession have been included.

Skill Enhancement Programme

Practical training programmes like Court visits and Moot court programme are introduced effectively so as to provide proper and needful training to the Law students on the pattern of other professional disciplines like Medicine and Engineering. It is intended that main thrust should be on practical training programme which is to be conducted by inviting senior advocates from the Bar in coordination with the Dean/Director and other faculty members so that students of the Law School of Jagan Nath University are groomed initially at the school in a proper manner so that they may be in a position to have strong foundation which is very essential for a successful Advocate.

Orientation and Methodology

Today, law is a field of study that offers the recipient a wide range of career options, each requiring different skills but also possessing common characteristics. The options are endless in terms of practice areas and work environments. Lawyers might find themselves arresting a ship or zoning a playground, working independently in their home or with others in high rise corporate offices. Lawyers can practice law by helping clients plan to avoid problems, by solving problems once they develop, by representing and counseling businesses in a particular industry, by representing individuals sharing a common status or problems and by appearing (or not appearing) in court.

Current and useful subjects e.g. Intellectual Property, Law and Technology, Cyber Law and Cyber crimes, Environmental studies along with Regulatory and Relevant Law, Business Law, Law of Contract and Torts. Subjects dealing with Procedural and Substantive Criminal and Civil Law would be taught exhaustively along with latest case law .It would not be out of context to state that in order to ensure proper and meaningful grooming of the students of the Law School all sincere and meaningful effort would be made.

They would also be taught Non-Law Subjects which have much relevance in Legal education viz. Sociology, Psychology, Economics, Political Science, History, English and Foreign Languages like French and German which would be given much significance during the Pre-Law studies of the Law students. Conclusively it can be safely claimed that all efforts would be made by the competent faculty of the Law School on the basis of comprehensive current syllabi framed for the purpose to impart quality education to the students of the Law School of the Jagan Nath University Jaipur.
