One of the oldest Law Colleges that has created numerous legal luminaries and political figures. The main challenges of legal education today are not only contextual underpinnings of law but also to develop legal skills of the students so that they become analytical, problem solver by strategizing the legal requirements and effectively communicate within the legal context.
