MILESTONES OF COLLEGE
FIRST LAW COLLEGE OF THE CITY
Swami Shukdevanand Law College was established on 3rd March 2003, making it the First Law college of “Martyrs’ City” Shahjahanpur. Before the establishment of the College, there was a vacuum in legal studies in the city. In an educationally backward district like Shahjahanpur, this centre for legal studies has been setting records since its establishment and is making a significant contribution to the field of law.
HIGHEST NUMBER OF SEATS AS PER BCI RULES:
Along with being the first Law Institute in the City, the institute also has the highest number of seats according to BCI norms. The present capacity of the college is 500 regular seats and 50 (EWS seats) for desired candidates and has a break up of 300 for LL.B. (3Year) course, 180 seats for B.A.LL.B. (5Year) course and 20 seats for LL.M. (2Year) course, and also 10% extra for EWS students in every course.
FIRST COLLEGE UNDER MJPRU TO HAVE CONFERRED THE STATUS TO CONDUCT A MASTER OF LAWS COURSE
The MJPRU (Bareilly) has given the status to conduct the Masters of Laws (LL.M.) course to very few colleges, and our College is one of them. Since 2017, the College has been running three-year and five-year courses for law graduates, due to which we were not able to move forward in the direction of research and higher studies. In the year of 2017, we were able to fill that gap and started the new LL.M. course. This feat will enable us to gather opportunities for study and research in various aspects of law in our rich library, qualified teachers and healthy environment. The institute has a cutting-edge curriculum for next-generation law professionals, and the institute also provides network events with fellow legal professionals.
DISTINGUISHED ALMA MATER
A college’s success is related to the success of its alma mater. They are positioned in various distinguished professions. Being the First Law College in the City, it has given many prominent lawyers, advocates, academicians, judicial officers, public prosecutor, bank officers, and legal advisors in various companies.
College strives towards excellence, and our result shows us in that regard. The College has a 98% average result. Many students are gold medalists from our College. The College was fortunate to give university toppers in the year(s) 2011, 2013, 2016, 2017 and many more to come…
EXCELLENT SPORTS FACILITIES IN A LAW COLLEGE
Usually, law colleges focus on studies and strive to incorporate academic quality into their students. But, as the saying goes, ‘A healthy mind lives in a healthy body’ the College provides various sports facilities which help build character and team building. Hence, the College provides adequate sports infrastructure for our students. The College has an Indoor Stadium, Gymnasium and a huge playing ground with the facilities of a football pitch and apt cricket facilities. The college regularly organizes various sports events and competitions in Badminton, Basketball, Carrom, Chess, Table Tennis, Volleyball, Kabaddi, Kho-Kho, Steeplechase, and various Athletic sports.
