BITS Law School offers legal knowledge, practical training, and holistic education to build leaders who will be passionate to create a more fair, just, and inclusive society. Towards this goal, we embrace all learners who bring the right ethos, a penchant for learning the law, and who share our belief in bending the arc of the moral universe towards justice. Our progressive, interdisciplinary, and technology-led approach will help students learn to know the law, learn to practice law, learn to live with law, and learn to empower through law.

Who we are

Dean's Welcome Message

Ashish Bharadwaj

The nature of law is that it is constantly evolving, constantly guiding human behaviour, and constantly adapting to the needs of society. Yet, legal education in India ‒ to an end and the end in itself ‒ has not evolved much over the past few decades. It is time to make amends and BITS Law School is determined to lead the change. Our model of interdisciplinary legal education is based on the evolving role of technology in society, the plurality of thoughts, diversity of ideas, and internationalisation of knowledge. We stand on the shoulders of giants as we take the glorious legacy of BITS Pilani forward with its strong network of 1.8 lakh alumni. Now, after more than a century of lawyers crafting the freedom struggle and the story of India, it is time to build a new generation of lawyers who can dare to dream big and lead India into the future.

The Eagle

The Eagle is a symbol of courage and independence, and holds deep significance for BITS Law School. In our context, the Eagle's soaring presence embodies the vision and ability to see the big picture while at the same time paying attention to detail, to remain objective and uninfluenced, pursue excellence, and above all, to provide leadership. Just as the Eagle commands its domain, our students are equipped to navigate the complex legal landscape with confidence and determination, to champion justice and become beacons of change.

The Rising Sun

The rising sun, above everything else, spreads its light far and wide. It is widely known as a symbol of knowledge. It is unending and infinite, as well as cyclical, and symbolic of new beginnings.
