Welcome to Kirit P. Mehta School of Law (KPMSoL), NMIMS, an institution aspiring to be the Centre of Excellence for imparting quality legal education in the ever changing global scenario. Kirit P. Mehta School of Law endeavors to be a Law School with global focus and international outreach dedicated to advance human dignity, social and economic welfare, and justice through knowledge of law. With a Mission to be a global center of scholarly excellence in the field of law and justice, we will prepare outstanding and innovative law professionals with socially responsible outlook through holistic legal education. Established in the year 2013, it has already carved out a unique identity among leading Legal Educational Institutions. With the contemporary curriculum and outcome based pedagogy, Kirit P. Mehta School of Law is committed to provide an overall development for future legal professionals who are ready to face the challenges of legal profession from the very first day of their graduation.

The journey has been very encouraging so far and the efforts are already showing results. Our students are winning laurels at various national Moot Court competitions, parliamentary debates, and other extra-curricular activities. Last year our students have won the prestigious 13th Nani Palkhivala Memorial National Tax Moot Court Competition and 7th UPES Dr. Paras Diwan Memorial International Energy Law Moot Court Competition among others.

In order to make our students socially responsible and to apply law as a tool to uplift underprivileged sections of the society, we have established a Legal Aid Clinic in the Mithibai College Campus. We have also signed an MOU with Tata Trust to provide legal aid in assistance to the people suffering from mental illness. Practical application of law is extremely essential and for the same we frequently organize expert lectures by legal professionals including reputed advocates, law firm partners and Legal Counsels from the corporate world. We also organize workshops on arbitration and mediation so that the students can get practical knowledge, implementation and application of law on diverse situations.

The first National Moot Court Competition conducted by KPMSoL received an outstanding participation from all Law Schools across India. The finale of the Moot Court was judged by the sitting Supreme Court Judge and other luminaries from leading law firms and Senior Advocates. Apart from the above KPMSoL hosts LOQUITOR a National Parliamentary Debate Competition which receives an overwhelming response every year. Our school has a distinct cultural event MERAKI which will soon become national intercollegiate events.

The future also looks very exciting as our first batch will graduate in the year 2018. We have been able to secure long term internships in leading law firms for our students in the 5th year. We have also made certain important changes in the programme structure and have introduced semester system for the students admitted in the year 2017-18. This will positively impact the students as they can maintain healthy balance between receiving in-depth knowledge of relevant subjects and full-fledged participation in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. Kirit P. Mehta School of Law is also on its way to establish Research Centers in collaboration with national and international professional institutes which will provide learners with diverse opportunities to acquire knowledge on complex legal issues.
