Message of Director and Dean
The Global scenario of Legal education has witnessed a significant change in approach and a remarkable growth. Legal education in India too, has readily adapted to the global demands and every institution has geared up to meet the global challenges by harnessing the latest technologies in the field of legal education. The move towards interdisciplinary studies, research based and interactive learning with technology integration have opened up several options as well as created multiple challenges.
School of Law has always endeavored to attain excellence. Every batch of students witnessed the similar zeal. Even though this year has made us witness extraordinary times, yet during these challenging times, the School of Law fraternity kept its pace of performance, achievements and protecting the academic interests of the students.
Even during this pandemic our students have performed well. They opted for online internships, participated in online webinars and courses and undertook research projects and publications.
The curriculum is revised and upgraded regularly to include emerging challenges and contemporary issues within the syllabi. The students are encouraged to participate in every activity and are prepared for every competition. We, at SoL, will strive to extend the same congenial environment of excellence that we have provided on campus and also to the concept of online education as well.
I am sure that students of SoL, JECRC University, Jaipur will strive to accomplish greater heights and opportunities in life. I wish them the best of luck.

“And when it actually ended…there I was standing …feeling proud of myself on the fact that at last I overcome my inhibitions and presented my case in the boldest manner possible….”
Primarily, moot is the mock trial of how the legal proceedings take place in the courts. It is always regarded as a beginner’s guide. If you love challenges and arguments, then you can also develop a love for mooting during your life in law school. If you have decided upon advocacy as your career then mooting can be a great beginning for your dream. Every semester we organize Intra moot Court Competitions to develop the mooting and research skills of students. Till now 1 National Moot court competition, 5 Intra Moot Court Competitions have been organised and an Online National Memorial Writing competition has also been conducted.

1. Dharna Rajpal
I am Dharna Rajpal, a law student from Faculty of Law, JECRC University, Jaipur. I am currently in my penultimate year (8th semester) of BBA LL.B (Hons.) with Specialization in Business Laws. I am the Student Coordinator of the Internship Committee. My faculties have been my biggest supporters, be it Moot Court competitions, acing good Internships, making us attend seminars, publishing and presenting research papers at various conferences. With the guidance and constant support of my mentors at Faculty of Law, I have completed one of my dream Internships at Competition Commission of India even during the hard times of Covid-19 and other 12 Internships with the help of my faculties since my 1st year of law till now. They have provided me various platforms to showcase my legal and communication skills to enhance my knowledge and skills. The law department here at JECRC University had various Committees for extra-curricular activities. Some of them are – Moot Court Committee (to prepare the students for Moot court Competitions at District, state, national and even at international level also.), Lex Majstro ( to keep us updated with the current affairs and legal knowledge), Internship Committee (for providing Internships at various law firms, NGO’s, Law Firms, Advocates, Courts, Government Organizations to make us learn the practical applicability of laws we study.) Also, we have a club named “Amicus Curaie” which organises various events like debate competitions, “Mann ki Baat”, one day guest lectures, etc on numerous themes of law. We have been to a number of legal visits such as Central Jail, Vidhan Sabha, High Court and the Supreme Court of India. I am thankful to my faculties for giving us exposure before entering into the legal work Profession.
I believe that everything in this world happens for a reason. When I became a part of JU, it made me realize that it’s not just a JECRC University for me but an institution that every day brings out the fire in me to go beyond my capacity. The environment of the Faculty of Law engraves in me the sense of responsibility and the curiosity to explore and learn new things. My college life is the amalgamation of fun in cultural events like JU Wow (Wonder of words), JU Rhythm; attending workshops and seminars and also participating in extracurricular events like debates, moots, mann ki baat, group discussion, judgment writing competition and many more. The faculty always motivates their students to gain practical experience through internships and legal aid and awareness camps. There is also an in-house legal newsletter that keeps us abreast of the important legal news. All over, I must say that law school brings out the fighter in us to fight and to prove ourselves as the best for this competitive world.

I am extremely proud to be part of a such an esteemed University.
Hello! I am a student of JECRC University pursuing BBA LLB (Hons.). I am currently in 4th year. It has been a great experience overall here in the JU. As law is more about practical experiences rather than theoretical knowledge, here we were imparted practical training through moot courts and internships. We have a panel of great faculty who are from reputed universities and are also having deep knowledge. All the faculty are very helpful, dedicated and they guided us all the time. Whenever we participated in National and International Moot Court Competitions they have always supported and motivated us. Opportunities to excel and develop skills are provided to all as we have various clubs, many seminars and workshops are organised and we were regulary exposed to eminent judges and lawyers for one-to-one communication during these expert lectures and seminars which were conducted every semester. Along with the academic curriculum, we were provided with ample opportunities to learn through various law beyond lecture series which were organised even during pandemic. Likewise, Professional Development Training Programs were also organised to enhance our knowledge once in a year. This university has nourished me and gave me an opportunity to define myself. I feel indeed honoured to describe myself as ‘JECRCian’.
5. Tuba Khan
I am pursuing B.A.LL.B (H.), at School of Law in JECRC University and the journey that I started at School ofLaw at this University 3 years ago is indeed one of the best decisions of my life. My inquisitiveness and eagerness in the law field was visible clearly by the way I carried myself. And I was very clear about my future choices. The University and the faculty members are very student friendly and approachable in nature. The faculty members make sure that all the sessions are interactive and interesting in nature. Their teaching methodologies backed by practical skills and intellectual comprehension have given me the confidence to pursue my career ahead. Their all-time support and motivation has enlightened me throughout the beautiful journey. Now, the most interesting thing to add on, is Mootcourt of our campus where law as a subject is taught to see that how efficient a student is in fighting an argument. Mooting in todays generation is the salient factor in lives of law students. Keeping that in mind the Department of Law of JECRC University organizes various Mootcourt in order to provide the exposure to their students. The University also helps out the students in internships at the precious law firms and at the Chambers of well known Advocates. Adding to that a lot of seminars, session of Mann ki baat, Debating Competitions etc., are held very frequently that gives a lot of practical exposure. Apart from the academic growth the University provides additional opportunities to students to carry their passion along with their studies. Various clubs are here as per the interest of the students, like Swarag for those who have beautiful voice, Abhivyakti for theater etc. The University has several other facilities to help you evolve as a student, from a well-stocked library, to amazing Mootcourt, Gymnasium, Club activities and many extra-curricular and co-curricular activities. So, I will recommend this place to all the students as this is the place where one learns more than one can expect.
6. SHIVANGI JOSHI
The journey from a commoner to social engineer as they call it is supposed to be long and tedious, but it is not so for me. It is a path of self discovery, tonnes of knowledge & bucket loads of experience and JECRC University made it possible with the support, encouragement and guidance. As an institute JECRC University always motivate its students to take challenges & inspire them to excel in curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular. The achievements of students in academia and various National & International competitions are the proofs! Being an active member of different clubs and committees teaches me that hard work and perseverance is the key to mark your presence.Working with “Lex Majstro – A law newsletter” for more than 2 years improved my skills and my whole team is glad to serve the best news to the whole campus by our very own In-House newsletter. My experience of working in Internship Committee, now me & my confidence on another level. Well equipped library, Moot courts, MUNs, Debates, Workshops, conferences, Clubs & committees are just a tip of the iceberg. The best thing about this is easy accessibility to faculties. “With a sufficient equipped campus, we have the right group of people that make it worthy of calling it a flourishing garden with all types of fruit bearing trees ready for the world to be tasted in.”
7. Shradha Sharma
JECRC University has been a great contributor to the development of my personality. I have established my leadership, time management and team skills and have also been able to advance these skills to the whole new augment level. Throughout the academic sessions, I was challenged to discover capabilities that I never knew I had. Along with academics, the University focuses on personality development which helped me build a rewarding career. As a law student interested in IPR, I believe that the drafting assignments will help me in my internships and my career as well. With an attitude of being ever ready to help, and not only delivering classroom teachings, but they are also the pillars of the learning gained from this esteemed university and this is a treasure for life.The professors here make the university what it is today. I am the student coordinator of law club named “Amicus Curaie”. In this club we have organized various activities like debate competition, guest lectures, etc. One famous platform initiated by School of law is “Man ki Baat”, where every student is invited to share opinions on current debating issues. This helps us in enhancing our knowledge regarding these issues and it also aces speaking skills. Till now I have completed 15 internships under guidance of faculty of School of Law. I am also preparing for JESSUP 2021. We have also got a chance to visit Centra Jail, Vidhan Sabha, Courts, etc. Law Department of JECRC University provides help to students at each and every step. Internship Committee helps in getting good internships. Moot Court Committee helps in enhancing mooting as well as researching skills.
