Faculty of Law

Thank you for your interest in the Faculty of Law, University of Dhaka. The Faculty of Law, established in 1921, has been in the vanguard of legal education in the territory now comprising Bangladesh.

Although it is important to understand the technical aspects of the law, it is equally critical to see law in its complex social context and, thereby, gain an appreciation of the law as a vehicle for the pursuit of social as well as legal justice. In addition to all the basic classes which are considered necessary to a legal education, we offer courses, seminars, and workshops which both reflect the professional interests of our students and also serve to enrich the learning experience. Our curriculum provides students with the educational preparation necessary for careers in traditional legal practice, the corporate world, clinical law, government and public service as well as other less traditional careers.

The Faculty of Law has a history of innovation in its curriculum, methods of teaching, and programs. We are proud of our special learning environment. It is our goal to provide our students with the knowledge and skills important to a legal education along with the opportunity to put that knowledge and skill into action in ways that contribute to the personal development of our students and to the betterment of our community.

We welcome your interest in our program. I believe you will agree that legal education at University of Dhaka provides an exciting, enriching, and enlightening experience.
