The five year program is scheduled in ten semesters, duration of each semester being eighteen weeks including mid and end-semester examination/ evaluation.

2.2 The Structure of the Program

The Program comprises of 70 courses (56 Compulsory Courses, 6 Elective Courses and 8 Honours Courses), and 5 Legal Internship programs. These courses are spread over ten semesters over a period of 5 years.

2.3 Legal Internship Program (LIP)

The Legal Internship Program (LIP) can be best described as an attempt to bridge the gap between the professional world and the academic institutions. The entire effort in this method of education is in extending the program of education and evaluation beyond the classroom of a university.

Legal internship program is an integral part of the integrated degree programs of Faculty of Law. It is undertaken at the end of each academic year for 4 weeks. The Legal Internship Program requires that the students undergo the rigor of the professional world in form as well as in substance providing them an opportunity to apply their classroom knowledge to live situations. Each legal internship carries 2 credit units. The satisfactory completion of LIP is mandatory.
