Message from the Director

Thank you for your interest in UMT School of Law and Policy.

Director SLP

University of Management and Technology's mission is to "evolve" by "actualizing strategic partnerships with stakeholders, harnessing leadership, generating useful knowledge, fostering enduring values, and projecting sustainable technologies and practices." Training students in legal and policy analysis is fundamental to each of these goals. Also, keeping in view the current state of legal and policy studies in the country, there is a dire need for institutions and programs that introduce students to latest approaches and discourses in these fields.

UMT Law has been set up in order to address all these issues. Our unique approach---that focuses on enhancing both theoretical knowledge and practical skills--- enables students to develop their own expertise and become competent academics and professionals nationally and internationally.

UMT Law offers undergraduate and graduate programs. All programs are focused on law with various components related to policy.

At the moment we are offering LL.M. in Commercial Law and LL.B. The objective of LL.M. in Commercial Law is to equip law graduates with knowledge and skills that are most useful for lawyers working in-house for corporations or with law firms doing commercial transactions. The objective of our five-year LL.B. program is to produce lawyers who are able to excel, depending on their interest, as general practitioners or specialists not only in the local market, but also in the international arena.

UMT Law is following the U.S. model of legal education while adhering, where applicable, to the standards prescribed by Pakistan Bar Council and Higher Education Commission. Our permanent, adjunct, and visiting faculty comprises alumni of top U.S. and British universities who are both preeminent scholars and accomplished practitioners and who are committed to helping students develop academic and professional competencies.

We look forward to hearing from you.
