HEAD OF THE DEPARTMENT
The Department of Law is trying to impart high quality law education to its students. It is emphasizing on both theoretical and practical law knowledge. The Department takes Moot Court class in the Moot Court of WUB. This Moot Court class is conducted by experienced advocates and judges so that they can excel in their practice after graduation. In fact many of our graduates are practicing full time in the District Courts and in the High Court Division of the Supreme Court of Bangladesh with good name and fame. Besides, many of our graduates are working as legal officers and executives in different companies with good reputation.
We have Institutional Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) in WUB and the Department of Law has recently conducted self-assessment on the quality of law education in the Department. We submitted the assessment report to the external assessment committee comprised of three members one of whom was an expert from India. The committee expressed their satisfaction with the quality of law education and facilities offered to the students by the Department of Law. We are imparting outcome based education (OBE) to our law students so that they can they can be suitable to the employers. Our curriculum has also been updated with outcome based teaching-learning process.
Department of Law has been established under the Faculty of Arts and Humanities and started its journey in 2004.
