Till 2012, Master of Laws program at NALSAR offered a range of specializations on strictly segregated basis. Students were required to opt for their specialized stream at the start of the course and then appeared for the various papers listed in the specialization. In 2012 it was decided to loosen the stranglehold of specialization by permitting students to opt for an optional paper from a stream different than their specialization.

In 2013, the one year LLM was introduced. Specializations were offered in a range of streams, however in a departure from the earlier system, it was decided that students would reach and not opt for a specialization. Thus if a student opted for four or more papers in a particular stream, then the student would be awarded a LLM degree in that specialization. However if that does not happen the student would be awarded a general LLM. A student not opting to go for any particular specialization would be awarded a general LL.M. by the end of the course. A large number of students in the current batch have opted for the general LLM.

Apart from the elective courses every student is required to do three mandatory courses i.e. Research Methods and Legal Writing, Comparative Public Law/Systems of Governance, Law and Justice in Globalizing World. Before finishing the course each student is also required to submit a dissertation on any area of research of student’s choice. A large number of electives on offer ensure that the class size remains appropriately small and this allows faculty members as well as the students to interact in a far more individualized manner.

The university offers a credit based teaching assistantship to the LL.M. students in their final semester. The responsibility involves helping the teacher in preparing reading materials, conducting the tutorials and providing consultation to the undergraduate students in the projects. This prepares them well for the increasingly attractive career in academics. Teaching assistantship program at NALSAR has helped the institution to contribute, both qualitatively and quantitatively, to the law faculty pool in the country.

LLM Programme in Insolvency and Bankruptcy Laws 

The LL.M course offered by the National Academy of Legal Studies and Research (NALSAR University) and Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs (IICA) is first of its kind LL.M. Degree Programme in Insolvency and Bankruptcy Laws and Procedures Law in India. India has a huge, emerging sector for helping distressed and bankrupt companies come out of financial difficulty. But it faces a huge shortage of bankruptcy professionals who can oversee the process. As of 2023, the country had nearly 3000 insolvency professionals; however, the number of Insolvency Professionals and Insolvency Associates are very less considering the number of filings taking place every day at NCLT. On an average, one Insolvency Professional needs at least 20 associates to assist in big-ticket CIRP and Liquidation cases. Therefore, there is a serious need to produce good insolvency associates and eco system at mass level for providing the support to IPs, IPEs, Consultancies, Law Firms, ARCs and Academia. Therefore, the Master level course / orientation in Insolvency and Bankruptcy Laws is the need of the hour. There is a vacuum in this area in the legal educational system in the country and this course seeks to fill up this vacuum.
