Studying Law @ NLUO

BA. LL.B (Hons.)

To bridge the gap between legal theory and praxis, an understanding of the social sciences is essential. Law is after all a profession that works in a socio-political context, and therefore for a legal practitioner training in the liberal arts is a prerequisite. National Law University Odisha offers a five year-integrated B.A.LL.B programme that combines training in law with knowledge of the social sciences. The liberal arts component of the B.A.LL.B program includes five arts subjects (Political Science, Sociology, Economics and English), which are supplemented by a range of law courses; and together they provide a broad based multidisciplinary foundation to the curricula.
