About School of Law
Chittagong Independent University (CIU) School of Law (SOL) starts its journey with a clear mission of contributing towards transformation of Bangladesh state and society through improved legal education. CIU School of Law is not interested in producing ‘parrot lawyers’ and ‘literalistic judges’ who are obsessed with reciting law books or statutes verbatim. Rather, our vision is to create legal professionals whose passion for law and compassion for humanity will allow them to work tirelessly for the suffering humanity through practicing innovative and humanistic interpretation of law. The motto of our School is ‘Learning by Serving’. Thus the mission of CIU Law School goes beyond mere academic practices. CIU School of Law has been established with a vision to generate law graduates who will not only serve the law and their clients with professionalism and integrity but also make contribution in nation building by pro bono lawyering and judicial activism. With this end in view, the CIU School of Law realizes that it is insufficient to simply know the "rules". Rather, our students must learn also what underlies these rules. Students are, therefore, not only taught what the law is, but also what the law ought to be. In order to accomplish this objective, the SOL has been working relentlessly in designing and redesigning its own model of legal education. Curriculum of the School of Law blends the academic rigors of the classroom with the real-life experience of the contemporary society.
Our distinguished faculty both from home and abroad is composed of academics, judges and practicing lawyers who possess academic excellence, practical skills and superior ability. Our students have the opportunity to learn in a collegial and cooperative learning process that facilitates students’ learning of doctrinal knowledge and practical skills in a more accomplished manner.CIU School of Law is duty bound to produce the finest judges, practicing lawyers, academics and dedicated leaderships in public and private sectors of the nation.
Finally, CIU School of Law will give you a taste of transformative approach to a complete legal education.
