Overview

Law studies have become increasingly popular and today the profession offers tremendous career scope and prospects for the youth. Keeping in mind the importance of this for young women, Kinnaird College felt a compelling need to introduce law at Bachelors’ level.

This five-year joint BA-LL.B degree is designed for students seeking a challenging and rigorous, interdisciplinary exposure to law and its related disciplines. While the focal point is the Pakistani legal system, the teaching methodology encompasses a critical and comparative approach to broaden perspectives and sharpen analytical skills of the students. The ambit of studies is not any laws as they exist and operate, but also how policy impacts laws, and the interplay of law and policy.

Studying law develops an understanding of the levels of power in our society in a way that is even more effective than that of political science because law is directly concerned with power and concerns every part of life.

The Department of Law will offer an extensive curriculum, emphasizing skills in courses such as legal writing, drafting, advocacy and legal argumentation. Kinnaird also aims to be the first women only law college in the Punjab providing intensive legal study and research opportunities.
