Within a short span of time, the college registered its reckoning presence, becoming one of the most sought after destination in the field of legal education. The college which was initially affiliated to Hemwati Nandan Bahuguna Garhwal Central University became a top-spot, producing a series of gold medalists and university merit holders.

(Hons.), LL.B. (Hons.), LL.M. & Doctoral programme in law. Moreover, our Centre for Post Graduate Legal Studies constantly focuses on fostering inquisitive spirit and platonic- cum-epistemological quest among our post graduate students as well as research scholars.

This confluence reflects a symphony of our institutional infrastructure, flexible academic curriculum, disciplinarian paraphernalia, socio-cultural objectives, academic-corporate interface and potential inducements for society centric academic researches and practices.
