Department of Law

The Law Department of Shanto-Mariam University of Creative Technology is dedicated to advancing human dignity, rule of law and social justice through knowledge of law. Our mission is to achieve excellence in providing legal education to aspiring students, advancing legal scholarship, serving the public, and upholding justice and constitutional rights. We aspire to enable our students to become lawyers who serve clients, the justice system and the public with positive accomplishment and a commitment to the high ideals of the legal profession. We strive to provide students with a balanced legal education needed for success in the practice of law.

Our curriculum is designed to teach students about the law and to help them develop the skills necessary to use that knowledge in practice and devise legal solutions to the legal problems of the society. Our academic programmes will help to acquire the legal competence to serve in both private and public workplaces. Though our primary emphasis is to prepare lawyers to serve in the legal profession, the legal competence gained through the academic programmes will also prepare students who seek careers in other disciplines such as the administrative services, development sector and corporate management.

They bring with them practical problem solving experience and years of teaching experience.
