School of International Law
Providing The Complete Law School Experience
Studying for any distance learning programme can be challenging. In order to excel, a student requires guidance and support from faculty that has the necessary experience and skill to teach both the subject matter and examination techniques. The School of International Law is equipped to do just that. With all the basics in place – a spacious campus, the requisite infrastructure, sport facilities, a well-equipped library and WI-FI throughout the college – SIL offers those ingredients that make it possible for students to realize their potential, as individuals and as lawyers. SIL has a policy of going beyond the classroom environment and textbook approach. We are passionate about providing our students with an enriching experience of what it is to be a lawyer in the making. Some of our extracurricular activities include training our students in advocacy and hosting regular mock trials within the campus. In addition, all courses include regular law moots and legal research training. Since no campus life is complete without recreation, SIL offers regular alumni get-togethers, field trips and sports matches. Our in house publication, Spectrum of International Law, features articles and interviews by authorities in their fields on legal and ethical issues. It provides our students with access to original work and exposes them to current debates in the legal arena. The top students of each year are given the opportunity to research and publish their work in the journal. SIL has also arranged for the top performers of each year to be placed with reputable law firms as interns and research associates during their summer break. This placement allows the students to gain invaluable practical experience for their CVs while clarifying for them which areas of Law interest them.
