Message From Dean

DRPROF. (Dr.) A. SUBRAHMANYAM

DEAN, SCHOOL OF LAW

Legal Education is not just mastering of the subjects or the varied provisions of the law. It is the overall development of an individual into a legal profession. In School of Law, Law is structured in such a way that it would give a clear understanding of the meticulous and rigorous structure of the Indian Legal System and International Legal Traditions. We care for every student and at School of Law, we don’t teach in conventional way but make the student learn. Marching along the intendment of the Bar Council of India, the UGC and Academic Regulations of Vel Tech governing legal studies, the Institute will inculcate research and investigative focus in legal minds to enter any type of challenging avocations.

Message From Hod

Vel Tech - Vice ChancellorPROF. (Dr.) B. Someswararao

Head of Department,SCHOOL OF LAW

Legal Learning has become one of the most exciting avocations of the present generation. Legal Education having its broad concept includes practicing law in the Law Courts, law teaching, law research and administration in different branches of our Constitutional system. The significance of legal empowerment through legal education can not be over-emphasized in a democratic community. It has become the necessary duty of every citizen to know the Law as ignorance of Law can not be excused at all. With this object in mind the School of Law, Vel Tech University in accordance with the mandate of Bar Council of India norms has adopted a proliferating culture of Moot Courts and made legal education more practice and behavioral than simply learning the letter of Law. We at Veltech School of Law inculcate the students with operative legal rules which stimulate their skills and competence required for their future career.
