About School of Law, CIU:
Welcome to the School of Law
Chittagong Independent University (CIU) School of Law (SOL) started its journey with a clear mission of contributing towards the 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 the law. The motto of our School is 'Learning by Serving'. Thus the mission of CIU Law School goes beyond mere academic practices. The school 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 a contribution in nation-building by pro bono lawyering and judicial activism. With this end in view, the Law School 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. To accomplish this objective, the SOL has been working relentlessly in designing and redesigning its model of legal education. The curriculum of the School of Law blends the academic rigors of the classroom with the real-life experience of contemporary society. Our distinguished faculty both from home and abroad is composed of academics, iudges 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. ClU 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 the transformative approach to a complete legal education.
