The growth of law as a discipline and practice is a result of its dialogic relationship with other fields of knowledge. Political transitions, economic developments, and changes in the socio-cultural factors impact the domain. Law is closely associated with social sciences for its understanding and application. Law as an academic discipline has grown and is being influenced by the developments in humanities and social sciences. In the present era, development of law is also linked with scientific and technological advancements as these fields have posed different challenges before the legal conceptualizations and practice and also helped in the proper administration of law. Procedural reforms and substantive developments of law in India could be viewed as the result of such diverse factors. One needs a systematic and scientific method to synthesise the study of law with humanities and social sciences to understand complex issues in the interpretation and application of law.

In such a situation, teaching law involves more than articulating and relaying a set of rules to an audience. To examine critically the nuances of law, one must turn to disciplines outside the domain of law and adopt a multidisciplinary approach. In order to accomplish this, we focus on imparting education in the following academic areas:

Law is a system of rules that a society or government develops to deal with crime, business agreements, and social relationships. Law is a framework that directs and guarantees that people or a network hold fast to the will of the state. Institute of Law Nirma University offers honours in the following courses.

Much of an Intellectual Property lawyer’s activity will involve providing legal advice on usage, commercial viability, marketing and distribution mechanisms, infringement or duplication, vesting of ownership and usage rights for any product or matter which falls within its ambit.

Words and language have always been the tool of giving expression to human perception, thoughts, and feelings. This tool, like chisel, shapes and carves ideas for expression. And when we refer to language, literature comes as an obvious corollary. As an interdisciplinary idea, Communication or Literature are spaces where technical writing, communication, and nuances of phonetics form the first part of this Humanities course, literature completes the full circle where a range of poetry, fiction, essays, and drama are delivered through the literary corpus.

To create a better understanding of social sciences, subjects like political science, economics and sociology are also offered as part of the curriculum. While the institute prepares practice ready professional lawyers, a thorough knowledge of society, politics and economy are indispensable. Macro Economics, Micro Economics, Professional Ethics, Political Thought, Sociology etc. form a cohesive curriculum with the modules of Justice Education in order to formulate a holistic framework.
