About Law Centre-II

Law Centre-II made a humble beginning in the year 1971 at the premises of ARSD College, Dhaula Kuan to offer full-time LL.B. program. It has a glorious past of 50 years. The LL.B. classes were conducted in the evening and the alumni of Law Centre-II included top bureaucrats, police officers, military officers, teachers from different departments, chartered accountants, doctors, engineers, and other professionals. The Centre had the privilege of being headed by the top law scholars of India, such as Prof. Upendra Baxi, a well-known jurist and former Vice-Chancellor of University of Delhi; Prof. Tahir Mahmood, who subsequently became Chairperson, Minority Commission, Prof. A.K. Koul, who was elevated as Vice-Chancellor, National Law University, Jodhpur and National Law University, Ranchi, Prof. Gurdip Singh, who became Vice-Chancellor, National Law University, Lucknow, Prof. Poonam Saxena, who is presently Vice-Chancellor, National Law University, Jodhpur and Prof. B.T. Kaul, who is presently Chairperson, Delhi Judicial Academy.

In 2016, due to Legal Education Rules, 2008, which prohibits the classes of LL.B. being conducted in the evening, Law Centre-II has taken a new avatar. It has been shifted from the ARSD College premises to the state of the art building (Umang Bhawan) in North Campus. Now the classes commence at 8:00 AM and go upto 2:00 PM. Adding strength to the centre is its well-qualified and dedicated faculty for the overall development of the students which help them to become innovative legal professionals and public leaders.

The former In-charges of Law Centre-II paved the way to make the Centre one of the premier educational institutions imparting education in law in the country. Presently, Prof. Dr. Mahavir Singh Kalon is Professor In-charge of Law Centre-II. Law Centre-II, a dynamic leader in the field of legal education, has produced many Judges, distinguished jurists, leading advocates, ministers and some of the best teachers in the country.
