Message of Head, Department of Law

dumyLawyers are Social Engineers as lawyering for the poor is lawyering for justice. With a vision to build the society, Bangladesh University (BU) has initiated the journey to impart Quality Legal Education within a very reasonable and moderate Tuition Fee, obviously within the affording capacity of the students of middle and lower middle class families of this country.I am delighted to be a part of this noble venture.

Prof. Dr. Md. Nazmuzzaman Bhuian from the Department of Law of the University of Dhaka has adorned the post of the honorable Advisor of this Department; it’s an achievement for the Department of Law of BU.

The Department is enriched with a set of young, energetic and enthusiastic full time and adjunct faculty members with full devotion and sincerity with a proven track record of academic excellence from home and abroad. With the guidance of such able academics, students of this Department have already qualified themselves in Advocate ship Enrolment, Judiciary and in various other corporate private jobs. A few of them have also obtained fully funded foreign scholarships.

We have an updated syllabus duly approved by the UGC for the 4 Years LL.B. (Hones) Program, LL.M. 1 year and 2 Years Program.We have a permanent Moot Court Room which may be treated as the heart of this Department.The students can master the skills and tactics of lawyering as a dynamic, smart, thrilling and noble profession in real sense. As a part of this skill development initiatives, Department arranges Court Visit Program with the students regularly once in a semester so that the students may learn the Court Proceedings practically.Besides, the Department frequently arranges Seminars, Workshops, Certificate Training Courses on various contemporary national and international legal and human rights issues.

The university is going to shift to its permanent campus at Adabor within the tentative shortest possible time which is no doubt a tremendous achievement in the history of other private universities ranking the same with the status of BU.

In fine, I have the honest courage to assert that, without quality we cannot exist.The Department of Law of BU doesn’t make any compromise particularly in case of imparting quality legal education.

I am delighted to be a part of this team again.
