Many students are choosing law as their career these days. The reasons are plenty. For one, it is a prestigious and challenging profession and opens doors to innumerable job opportunities. From practising law in the courts to exploring various other legal positions in both public and private sectors, the options for law graduates are unlimited.
There are many government and private universities offering education in law in India. However, a few stand out for their quality of education, highly trained and acclaimed faculty, world-class infrastructure, well-equipped library, pedagogy, practical training, internship, and placement prospects.
One of them is NMIMS Deemed to be University’s Kirit P. Mehta School of Law (KPMSOL). Established in 2013, and approved by the Bar Council of India, the school fulfils almost all the parameters necessary to produce qualified, confident leaders in the legal field. Inculcating the values of professionalism, ethics, academic excellence, diversity, justice and integrity is paramount at KPPSOL.
Apart from having experienced faculty from academia, there is added thrust on regular interaction with law firms, judiciary, senior lawyers and prominent personalities. Their ever-evolving curriculum is tailor-made to enable the budding lawyers to build their legal skills. The school follows outcome-based learning for the best results for its students rather than focusing on mere theoretical knowledge. The school has a well-equipped library and is host to a globally relevant database. KPMSOL offers various programs to cater to students at different levels of their academic careers. From the 5-year integrated B.A., LL.B. and B.B.A., LL.B. courses to LL.M. and doctorate programs, the school’s programs are all-encompassing.
An internship is considered a compulsory component for the students of the 5-year integrated courses at KPMSOL. The school feels it is the best external assessment to gauge the competency of students as they learn. The linear progression of internship starts from NGOs to Trial Court, from Trial Court to High Court/Firms/Corporates and from High Court to Supreme Court/Firms/Corporates. The school provides internship assistance to learners as per the legal field they choose. Besides, active engagements with influential industry people and firms in the way of talks, seminars, guest lectures, event sponsors, etc. allow for active student interaction with the legal world.
The University has a group of dedicated placement executives who are constantly in touch with the legal fraternity to help with student placements. The school aims to provide placements to well-deserved graduating and post-graduating students with the assistance of the Placement Committee. In the year 2019, KPMSOL was associated with reputed members of the industry such as ALMT Legal, ARA LAW, Edelweiss, Deloitte, Mahindra, Tata Housing, Barclays, Viacom 18, KPMG, Clasis Law, to name a few.
