Its Alumni includes Judges of the Supreme Court and High Courts, Union Cabinet Ministers, Chief Ministers, Cabinet Ministers, Ambassadors, Senior Bureaucrats, Police Officers and other legal luminaries. The Department is the proud alma mater of three Chief Justices of India, a large number of Chief Justices of various High Courts, members of subordinate judiciary, civil servants, law officers and members of the legal profession. The number of its alumni, which rose to the bench of the Hon’ble Supreme Court and in many High Courts of this country, is too large to mention.

The Department always strives to create new opportunities for its students. The Department provides practical training to the students to horne their skills in various fields for overall development of personality such as-in the arena of Debate, Moot Court, Client Counselling, etc. by organising various competitions and seminars.

About the Competition

The Department has the practice of conducting series of special lectures in memory of Justice Mehr Chand Mahajan and S. Ajit Singh Sarhadi to acknowledge their contributions in the field of law. As a sequel to such prestigious memorial lectures, the Department of Laws is organising its First Prof. Anil Kumar Thakur Memorial National Debate Competition in the online mode to pay homage to our dear colleague, who left us for heavenly abode very untimely. A very humble and down to earth human being, very progressive and a brilliant teacher, and a very passionate debater who always motivated and guided the students to participate in debates. In order to keep his passion for debating alive, the Department of Laws take pride in announcing that this debate competition will be an annual feature.


Late Dr. Anil Kumar Thakur was one of the eminent Professor of Department of Laws in the field of Constitutional Law, Law and Economics and Jurisprudence. The COVID 19 catastrophe will never be forgotten as it took away from us such an eminent legal scholar and a humble, hardworking and empathetic person. His untimely demise has created void not only in the Department but also in the life of his colleagues and students.
