Established in Year: 2006

In the State of Bihar, where the seeds of the earliest republic were sown and the crop of democracy cultivated, a need was felt by the government for a university which would provide quality legal education and strive to raise national legal standards to competitive international level and promote legal awareness in the community, which will lead to the realization of goals embodied in the Constitution of India. Thus, on August 15th, 2006 came into being Chanakya National Law University at Patna under the able guidance of its Vice - Chancellor/Pro - Chancellor, Prof. Dr. A. Lakshminath, former Dean and Registrar, NALSAR University of Law, Hyderabad. CNLU was established under the Chanakya National Law University Act, 2006 (Bihar Act No. 24 of 2006) and included in section 2(f) of the U.G.C. Act, 1956.

{tab=Courses Offered}

Legal education at CNLU focuses on the practices of lawyers, the complex mix of the routine and the not-so-routine work of lawyers within government, business, private associations, and nonprofit organizations. We believe that it is not enough for reflective individuals trained in the law to focus only on legal rules. The rules of law cannot be understood apart from the human activities they facilitate or regulate, nor from the historical, social, economic, and political setting in which they exist. Rules, activities, and social context, each represents a crucial component of the practices of lawyers.

Our core curriculum guarantees that students develop relationships with a wide range of faculty members. And because our courses often require work in groups, students form strong, durable ties with their classmates, building a network of contacts they can call upon throughout their careers. They establish further ties across classes through work in individual labs and through the many social gatherings the students organize themselves. To gain depth, each student plans an area of concentration, including a program of elective courses and research in a focus area.

We teach students not only how to think like lawyers, but also how to work like lawyers. Students write a lot, because mastery of language is crucial to success in law. They learn the perspectives from which and the contexts in which lawyers work. And they put it all together by exploring the practices of lawyers as they counsel clients; find facts; negotiate, plan, and execute legal strategies; and seek change through courts and legislatures. CNLU facilates innovative teaching fed by the latest research. Research based education provides students with th latest research results and finding within their area of interest. CNLU offers Courses & Research in the area of Law. Courses are regularly updated as new ideas emerge and industry need change. Methods of teaching in CNLU involves lectures, seminars, case studies, moot court and project works. Students enjoy active learning environment with latest learning facility.
