Prof. N.R. Madhva Menon, a renowned legal educator and a receiver of the Living Legend of Law Award, once said: Law governs human conduct, from the cradle to the crematorium.
In line with this belief, Vivekananda Law School (VLS) is an integral part of VIPS. No problem can stand the assault of sustained thinking, said Voltaire, a renowned French philosopher and a celebrated author (1694-1778). At VLS, 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 practise not business but vocation.
At VLS, the real objective of education is seen in three axioms:
- Sa vidya ya vimukyte: Learning which liberates the student from pettiness, narrowness, obscurantism and irrational beliefs;
- Yha kriyavaan sa panditah: He alone is a learned man who serves the community; and
- Sheelvrit paravidya: Learning consists of character and conduct.
In the history of VIPS, the Vivekananda Law School Moot Court Society organised its 1st International Moot Court Competition from 4th – 6th October, 2013. A total number of twenty six (26) colleges from all over India, participated, including two teams from Nigeria and Philippines.
