Along with other academic courses the doctoral programme at NALSAR has also been refashioned. Consequently from placing an exclusive focus on legal research problems, the program has started to also register doctoral research on research questions which emanate from other disciplines whilst interfacing with law. The programme fosters intellectual potential and ignites insightful questioning, and encourages students to use their critical ability to passionately pursue their research inquires. The doctoral programme is supported by faculty members with varied subject expertise which include Constitutional law, Corporate Law, Criminal Law, Disability Rights, Environment Law, Humanitarian Laws Legal Theory, Intellectual Property, Infrastructure Law, International Trade and Business Law and Personal laws. The programme is not limited to the academy and aims to attract candidates pursuing different career paths be it industry, litigation, or judiciary.
The University also offers a MPhil program.
