- “The academic exposure is unparalleled”
Studying law in a top law college has many advantages. For starters, the curriculum is not restricted to the domestic setting. It takes a global approach. Coursework covers the nuances of legal developments in India vis-a-vis the world — thus giving it a holistic perspective.
It is not just the fundamentals of law that you will be studying at Asian Law College, but a variety of arts and humanities themes. The marriage of law and liberal arts here, creates a sound basis for students to interpret legal conversations in a broader sense. For instance, understanding human rights with a background in sociology, or learning about constitutional law having studied the history of the Indian constitution itself, or being able to grasp taxation law a little better on account of an introduction to economics are just a few examples.
With a view to develop professional legal skills in future law aspirants, Asian Law College provides knowledge in parallel settings such as mock trials, debate competitions, moot court competitions, role plays, dramas and many more. The teaching pedagogy adopted for this program is designed to promote multi-faceted inquiry and practical appreciation of given problems.

- “The illustrious faculty is the best in the country without any doubt”
When a pool of different people with different ideas and backgrounds come together, something much bigger than the sum of the parts can be born. Variety is the spice of life. It is the flavours of diversity that gives ALC a distinctive edge over many other law schools. Headed by Dr. Saleem Akhtar (Director Academic Advisory Board) – an illustrious alumnus of Aligarh Muslim University who has had a long association of 36 years with his Alma Mater which he has served too, in the honored capacity of Dean and Chairman of the Faculty of Law – each of the ALC faculty from several countries across the world brings with them something unique.
Trained at the best of global institutions, they come with a wide array of expertise and experiences. The value-add to student learning is immense, especially since ALC’s faculty are engaged in research projects of their own. As the legal landscape changes in India and the world over, the flexibility of educators to grow and evolve in their own understanding of law is critical. This gives rise to more contextual, relevant dialogues in the classroom that many traditional colleges may lack.
The bottom line here is that contemporary legal training is needed to succeed in today’s world. And, for the 21st century law student, this is just the place to be!
