SVKM’s NMIMS, one of India’s leading education institutions with a 40-year legacy of academic excellence, invites applications for Master of Law (LL.M.) and Ph.D. in Law at Kirit P. Mehta School of Law (KPMSOL), Mumbai. Established in 2013, KPMSOL offers a contemporary, industry-oriented curriculum prepared by legal stalwarts and taught by highly-qualified faculty, with an extensive infrastructure including state-of-the-art library facilities and resource materials, and online databases and e-learning modules to facilitate self-learning. The School’s massive industry network and dedicated placement team allow students to gain valuable practical experience through internships, and secure placements with leading law firms.

Speaking about the law education offered at KPMSOL, Dr Ramesh Bhat, Vice-Chancellor, SVKM’s NMIMS Deemed-to-be-University, said, “As trade and finance have converged globally in recent years, a pressing need has arisen for corporate governance across geographies and judicial spectrums, spawning a demand for legal specialists capable of interpreting many different sets of laws and integrating them into organisational strategy. This international, multi-cultural milieu, also requires academicians and thinkers who can contribute valuable research and insights into the various challenges and conflicts, and find solutions to drive compliance as well as justice. The LLM and PhD programs offered by NMIMS Kirit P. Mehta School of Law empower candidates to equip themselves with the right perspective and tools to fulfil this demand for multi-skilled experts and researchers.”

Elaborating about the course applications, Dr Alok Misra, Dean, NMIMS KPMSOL and NMIMS SOL, said, “The field of law can appear very intimidating and demanding to people, and requires commitment and specialised skills. NMIMS’ law schools focus on demystifying the domain, training students in inquiry and analysis and, ultimately, to become astute legal minds of global standards. While our LLM program provides in-depth understanding of various domestic and international laws relevant to their specialisation, and the skills necessary to successfully analyse and argue legal issues, our PhD program produces innovative researchers equipped with the academic rigour and analytical tools necessary to drive progress in the legal field.”
