Welcome from the Centre

Welcome to SZABIST University's Law Program!

At our Law Department, we are committed to providing diverse learning opportunities that extend beyond the classroom. Our approach bridges theory and practice, fostering a positive impact on the community and emphasising student-centred learning and engagement. 

Our focus on experiential learning is evident in initiatives like the Mooting Society and Legal Aid Centre, which offer students platforms to develop advocacy skills and gain practical experience through pro-bono cases. The summer programme broadens students' exposure to various legal issues, aligning academic knowledge with real-world readiness for the Pakistani legal field post-LLB from the University of London. 

Through the Rule of Law Centre's campaigns, research, and conferences, students contribute meaningfully to legal discourse. The SZABIST Law Society enhances the educational experience with field trips and events, instilling diplomacy, service, and the power of a collective voice. 

As we move forward, we remain dedicated to providing innovative and enriching educational experiences. Our goal is to prepare you for academic challenges and instil the values that define our department. We look forward to having you be a part of an enriching academic journey with us at SZABIST University!
