Vivekananda School of Law and Legal Studies (VSLLS)
The true goal of education is not merely about intelligence but rather “Intelligence Plus Character”. Education is seen as a continuous dialogue where the faculty plays the role of a facilitator and not a teacher. ‘He who dares to teach must never cease to learn ‘, is the backbone of our classroom delivery.Prof. N. R. Madhva Menon, a renowned legal educator and a receiver of the Living Legand of Law Award, he said. “Law influences every person ,from the cradle to the grave” and in line with this belief, Vivekananda School of Law and Legal Studies is an integral part of VIPS.
“No problem can stand the assault of sustained thinking”, said a renowned French philosopher and a celebrated author (1694-1778).
Keeping this in mind, at VSLLS, we induce amongst the students, the urge to think intensively and to think critically.This enables them to meet the challenges of the times. They are constantly reminded that they have chosen to pursue and practice, not business but vocation.
