Students of the undergraduate program in law (LLB Honors) are expected to complete a rigorous 137 credit hours in subjects that include the laws of Bangladesh, comparative law, and human rights. A Master of Laws (LLM) program is expected to launch in 2017.
The Department of Law, however, is about much more than just learning the letter of the law. Great emphasis is placed on developing the students’ ability to analyze laws, develop an argument, communicate clearly, work as a team, and learn independently. Students are also taught to think critically about the current workings of the justice system and identify potential areas for reform.
Anyone interested in learning more about the department is invited to send an email to the chair at firstname.lastname@example.org
Let me be the first to extend a warm welcome from the Department of Law, North South University. We appreciate that you have taken the time to learn more about us.
The Department of Law is new, but it has a very strong foundation. Our students are passionate and academically curious, all of our faculty members are legal experts who are dedicated to research and teaching excellence, and we are beginning to forge relationships with some of the most influential lawyers and institutions in Bangladesh.
The main goal of the Department of Law is to provide a Common Law based legal education to the students with a view to produce the best lawyers, judges and academcis who will be able to attain the leading positions in their respective sectors at home and abroad. To us, this means that our students will not just be well versed in the laws of Bangladesh, but also critical thinkers who will pioneer the development and implementation of innovative, efficient, and just initiatives nationally and internationally.
As we grow, we hope to continue to attract the best and brightest students, build an unparalleled faculty, and partner with brilliant legal scholars and practitioners in Bangladesh and around the world.
