About L.J. School of Law

The Lok Jagruti Kendra’s idea behind starting the school of Law is not just to produce degree holders in law but to produce Lawyers who would practice in courts of law. In view of the globalized scenario, the institute’s thrust areas would be cybercrime, forensic law, legal communications, skill acquisitions in interpreting and applying laws, and Public law including public interest litigations besides full-time faculty, the institute has plans for large-scale involvement of eminent lawyers practising in local courts, High Courts and Supreme Court.

The institute also proposes to introduce a pedagogical innovation – “Lawyer on wheels”- under which the students will go to interior villages for creating legal awareness as well as for providing legal help to the socially and economically backward classes. The institute will provide a unique learning experience to the students.
