About Us:

The vision of the University is to create a Global Legal Institution which will compete with the best outside India and to prepare Lawyers for a legal career that introduces them to wide range of opportunities in legal profession across the globe.

The University initially offers a 5-year integrated B.A., LL.B (Hons.) Degree Programme with effect from the Academic Year 2019-20 starting in January, 2019.



Globalization is a challenge and also an opportunity in the present times. We require the convergence of Economics, Technology and Law. India had a long history of business and technology. The potential has been unleashed through the process of liberalization. Yet the smooth sailing requires the compass called Rule of Law. We have mixed track record on this count. India has established itself as a democracy which is a success on the macro participative process of governance. Yet, there are other crucial issues of internal dimension.

  1. There is a complex task of assimilation of the fractured social classes for centuries in such participation.
  2. Cumulative economic progress needs to reach the various layers to create a development index which is fair and equitable.
  3. Most importantly a transparent and speedy justice administration system which reinforces the faith in Rule of Law.

Mahatma Gandhi said, "We must become the change we want to see in the world." Each one of us who is a part of this institution should be remembered for promotion of the social justice, which will be our contribution to the society.


Our sincere endeavour will be to make legal education as justice education, as an instrument of social, political and economic change, and to prepare Lawyers who will be competent in the art of advocacy both at the trial and the appellate level and also skilled in judicial administration. The students of the National Law University, Delhi will be shaped as agents of change as the country mandates to achieve its developmental goals for future generations. The primary mission of the University will be to create Lawyers who will be professionally competent, technically sound and socially relevant, and will not only enter the Bar and the Bench but also be equipped to address the imperatives of the new millennium and uphold the Constitution of India.
