Trimester education model

Following Bangalore and NLU, Bhopal model

About the Trimester education system:

Following the global standards and India’s two best NLU’s trimester education model with appropriate modifications, the Institute of Legal Studies and Research has moved to trimester system from semester system. An academic year is divided into 3 trimesters, covering 12 weeks, followed by 1 month complusory industry or court internship provided by the Law School.

The trimester system ensures that the students are used to high academic rigour and this also kind of prepares them for the road ahead after law school. The trimester model has been adopted by prestigious law schools like the National Law School of India University (NLSIU), Bengaluru and the National Law Institute University (NLIU), Bhopal.

Benefits of Trimester education system:

  • The increased number of practical projects, moot court, internships and emphasis on writing research papers will further help build the resumes of the students and will aid in their future employment.

International exposure:

We believe in providing holistic and contemporary education to our students with a global perspective. Special lectures & certificate programmes are conducted by International Professors from USA, Europe, UK, Singapore etc and collaboration with foreign universities for student & faculty exchange programme brings a truly global perspective in students’ career.
