Law School Review : Know About Law College Dehradun, Uttaranchal University

About the College

Law College Dehradun, as a flagship institution of Uttaranchal University under the aegis of Sushila Devi Centre for Professional Studies and Research, was established in the year 2002 as the first independent Law College of Uttarakhand. The college was the visionary project of Shri Jitender Joshi, the then Chairman of the college and presently the Chancellor of Uttaranchal University along with his plenipotentiaries from across the academic spectrum. Within a short span of time, the college registered its reckoning presence and became one of the most sought after destination in the field of legal education. The college which was initially affiliated to Hemwati Nandan Bahuguna Garhwal Central University became a top-spot, producing a series of Gold Medalists and University Merit Holders. As luck would have it, Law College Dehradun along-with its sister concerns Uttaranchal Institute of Technology and Uttaranchal Institute of Management reached its practical zenith through their merger in the form of Uttaranchal University in 2013 with the passing of Uttaranchal University Act, 2012.

Law College Dehradun inhabiting more than 1800 students on its roll is in fact, reflective of Indian Diaspora as its composition resonates the voices of almost all the states of India. The college as a lex matrix and an institutional paragon provides complete legal education under a single roof which includes five year BA. LL.B. (Hons.) & BBA.LL.B. (Hons.), LL.B. (Hons.), LL.M. and Doctoral Programme in Law. Placements do constitute a significant component of professional educational institutions. As a natural corollary, in collaboration with reputed legal firms, the college provides placement assistance to the students interested in corporate sectors. However, the focus remains on preparing the students for judicial and civil services as well as advocacy in courts by providing them a congenial academic environment.. Most of the alumni are serving as successful lawyers in the District Courts, High Courts as well as Supreme Court of India.

An institution bereft of socio-economic and cultural objectives is barren and unproductive. Keeping the fact in mind, the college boasts certain societies like Debating Society, Youth Parliament Society, Moot Court Society and Legal Aid Centre which propels students towards professional achievements and welfare oriented objectives.
