Distinctiveness : Established in 2001, USLLS's objective was to run Five Year Integrated Professional Law Course and to serve as an institution of advanced legal studies. It was the first University Law School established in the vicinity of the Supreme Court, Delhi High Court, various subordinate courts, commissions, tribunals and various monitoring offices of national and international voluntary organizations. Its Faculty is selected prescribing higher qualification than the University Grants Commission (UGC). Admissions are made on the basis of Common Entrance Test; the intake every year is 60. It also offers LL.M, Ph.D. and Post Doctoral research facilities in law.
The approach of the law school is to develop a positive attitude in students and make them realize that the lawyers are an integral part of the system of adjudication, determination of policies and setting up of standards for regulation of various activities through relevant institutions. It, therefore, trains them for placements in judiciary , quasi-judicial bodies , regulatory authorities , commissions , voluntary organizations and other sectors . Keeping in view the status of litigation in court system, courses are also offered in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADRs) and Client Counselling and Interviewing. These courses train a lawyer to offer alternative ways of dispute resolution outside the court system.
