About the School

CMR University School of Legal Studies aspires to be recognised as a Principle Centre of Excellence in Law.

Striving to attract and facilitate a foray of enterprising, smart, and intelligent young individuals into the legal profession, is a focal point of the CMR University School of Legal Studies.

The School of Legal Studies seeks to emphasize on the integration of enterprising initiatives and creative programmes in the curricular activity, transcending conventional academic orientation so as to inculcate within each of its students, a vibrant and more real outlook towards life and career.

Each student in the School of Legal Studies is trained to become a complete professional and a highly-accomplished citizen.

Established in 2003, the School of Legal Studies has been actively engaged in shaping young legal professionals. For six consecutive years, CMR School of Legal Studies has been ranked amongst the top Law colleges in India by leading national magazines. Our students have been highly successful in winning several national level moot court competitions, debate competitions and model parliament competitions, besides securing the top ranks in the Karnataka State Law University examinations

Having made the transition from being affiliated to Karnataka State Law University to being a constituent department under CMR University, we hope not only to emulate our past deeds, but to progress further and reach greater heights in our eternal quest for perfection.

The CMR University Journal for Contemporary Legal Affairs represents an earnest attempt by all of us at the CMRU School of Legal Studies, to provide and nurture a forum that fosters relevant research in contemporary legal issues. Our objective has been to disseminate legal research by eminent judges, practitioners, academicians and researchers, exposing the reader to the highest standards of academic excellence. The journal voices the opinions of the writers and inter-alia is a gateway for promoting extensive academic research. The journal has been launched as a realisation of the fact that law schools have a social responsibility to cater to the well-being of society.

In furtherance of these noble objectives we propose to enable open access to all our content via our website. We have been fortunate to recieve contributions from the very best and brightest legal minds. We hope that the same will be true of all our issues and editions. Our editorial board consists of eminent researchers and academicians par excellence. Their constant guidance and direction has enabled us to adhere to the highest of standards, both academically and ethically.
