The teaching methods adopted for the Degree programme are such as to promote multi-disciplinary enquiry and practical appreciation of problems. The method of teaching involves lectures, discussions, case studies, Moot Courts and project works. An innovative feature of teaching method followed by the School of Law and Justice is dialectic method of mooting and debating. This is particularly useful for the multidisciplinary analysis of socio-legal problems and development of legal acumen and skill.
There is a high degree of interaction between the students and the teachers in the classroom. This is largely facilitated by the fact that at the commencement of the Semester, each student is 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 consist of case studies, judicial decisions, articles and excerpts from reports.
With this material, the students are expected to come prepared for the classes and actively participate in classroom discussions.
Faculty at the School of Law and Justice are very accessible. With an excellent faculty-student ratio, the School of Law and Justice provides an exciting opportunity for the students to interact with their teachers.
Beyond exchanges between students and faculty in the classroom, there are more formal means of communication aimed at improving the class experience and study 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 literatures and field investigation. These methods help in improving research skills, analytical ability as well as the communication skills of the students.
