A student should complete all the core and foundational courses, along with skill development courses chosen separately from each group. Further, he needs to submit a dissertation and defend his thesis in an open viva-voce. Students also have an option to take up a litigation/arbitration/para-legal assignment instead of a dissertation, after taking prior consent from the programme coordinator and guide. Internships or research assignments may also be prescribed by the School from time to time.
