School of Law
With the emergence of cutting edge technologies, social tools, and interconnected communities, the study of law has transgressed its traditional spheres of influence and assumed importance in a multitude of domains. At the School of Law, Manav Rachna University (MRU), we understand this transdisciplinary application of legal knowledge by offering practice-driven and application based clinical legal education.
We at School of Law provide up to date theoretical and practical education as well as skills centric empirical training to students. With the training under School of Law, the students get a comprehensive understanding of the practical aspects of legal practice in diverse areas.

Judges, accomplished professionals and acclaimed professors are invited to deliberate upon issues of contemporary importance and interact with the students, which helps them, develop critical perspectives and “out of books” thinking.
