A newer development at APIIT has been The Law School, which was founded in 2009.

Established with the goal of offering a legal education of international standard, the APIIT Law School offers an internal British Degree in Law, LLB (Hons) Law in collaboration with Staffordshire University Law School, UK.

The Law school offers outstanding facilities and opportunities to its students that include:

  • A dedicated facility modeled on leading British Law Schools with 17,000 square feet of floor area.
  • The only purpose-built Moot Court (mock court room) in the country.
  • An extensive Law Library that also  provides  access to the  electronic libraries and online resources of Staffordshire University.
  • Outstanding IT resources including high-speed internet and Wi-Fi connectivity.
  • An English Language Centre to provide support to students, which includes computer aided learning packages.

At the APIIT Law School, this infrastructure is supported by an exceptional teaching panel, which consists of highly qualified academics and practising lawyers supplemented by visiting lecturers. Leading legal practitioners conduct guest sessions on topics of special interest. Outside lectures, the teaching style is based on small group tutorials to ensure students receive the best possible attention.

In addition to this, students take part in the ‘SKILLS’ training programme in their first year. Based primarily of workshops, this builds skills in legal problem solving, legal writing and research, client interviewing, and critical analysis. This equips them with the practical skill-set required to be effective legal practitioners.

It is a tribute to the success of the APIIT Law School, that despite its relative youth, the school emerged champions in the national finals of the Henry Dunant Memorial Moot Court Competition 2012 and qualified for an international moot tournament held in Bangladesh, both organised by the International Committee of the Red Cross.
