The teaching methods adopted for the Degree programme will be such as to promote multi-disciplinary inquiry and practical appreciation of problems. The method of teaching will involves lectures, discussions, case studies, Moot Courts and project work. An innovative feature of the teaching method followed by cooperative teaching where two or more teachers jointly offer a course and interact with the students in the same class. This will be particularly useful for the multidisciplinary analysis of socio-legal problems. There will be high degree of interaction between the students and the teachers in the classroom. This will be facilitated by the fact that at the commencement of the semester, each student will be given a set of reading materials containing the course outline, teaching plan, reading lists and a fairly large volume of study materials in respect of each course. They will consist of case studies, judicial decisions, articles and excerpts from reports. With this material, the students will be expected to come prepared for the classes and actively participate in classroom discussions.
Faculty at the Law School are very accessible, With an excellent faculty-student ratio, the law faculty will provides an exciting opportunity for the students to interact with their teachers. Beyond exchanges between students and faculty in the classroom, there will be more formal means of communication aimed at improving the class experience and student life. At the end of each semester, the students are expected to complete an evaluation of the courses undertaken by them in that semester. The extensive comments on the teaching, reading materials, availability for consultation, etc., in these evaluation forms are taken seriously by the faculty so that they can more accurately identify students’ concerns especially in courses that are taught for the first time. The courses on Clinical Legal Education are taught by integrating classroom teaching with simulation exercises. Efforts are being made to expose students to court realities. Project assignment is another component of each course that requires both literature survey and field investigations. These methods help in improving research skills, analytical abilities as well as the communication skills of the students.
