Introduction

Symbiosis Law School, NOIDA in just Seventh year of its inception has carved a niche for itself in the academic circuits. It has become a celebrated name amongst the aspirants of professional legal education. It holistically promotes academic excellence, intellectual discipline and professional leadership. Being a constituent of Symbiosis International University, it envisions the reputation of Symbiosis in and around Delhi, the constitutional capital of India. SLS-NOIDA is strategically located in the industrial hub of NCR thereby opening up a plethora of opportunities for the budding lawyers.

SLS-NOIDA strives towards supplementing reforms in the field of law; to groom students to become the unified face of our legal fraternity, to produce knowledge disseminators and to produce individuals who are the torchbearers of the legal system of the country. Our effort is aimed at producing an intellect that believes in reforming rather than punishing and has the potential of hoisting the flag of truth and justice in an unfailing manner.

SLS-NOIDA, in its effort to holistically develop the personality of its learners, has formulated various cells including Research & Publication Cell, Moot Court Society, Legal Aid Center, Training & Placement Cell, Environmental and Social Welfare Cell, Cultural Cell, Sports Cell, Debate Society, Literary Society and International Law Students Association (ILSA) Chapter & Enactus Chapter. These cells not only groom student-leadership but also provide wider opportunities for their overall development in curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.

The faculty and the students work together towards the accretion and dissemination of knowledge. The pedagogy is designed to haul out the best in each student. To add to the experience of the students and the faculty, theoretical learning coupled with practical exposure provides the right blend of success to the learners at SLS-NOIDA. SLS-NOIDA organizes weekly lectures under the banner of ‘Extension Lecture Series’ delivered by multi-disciplinary academicians, legal luminaries and corporate honchos. These lectures are extremely instrumental in providing the students with the challenges awaiting them in their career (To know more visit http://symlaw.edu.in/extension-lecture).
