Since liberalizing its markets in 1991, India has emerged as one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Globalization is molding the legal landscape in emerging economies and blurring the boundaries between global and local. Last century of the last millennium witnessed and generated the promise of improvement and development in the field of science, technology and law. That century also helped us to arrive at new economic, social, ecological and political arrangements all over the world. New horizons were opened in the field of trade & commerce, science & technology and law & jurisprudence. Various new areas in the field of law were opened. Now the world is heading towards rapid progress in all most all fields of knowledge including law and the globalization has changed the entire fabric of polity and society. Globalization and the changing dimension of the Indian economy and polity have thrown up new challenges before us. It has brought a tough competition in educational service sectors. We are facing tough competition not only from within but from outside the country. Internationalization and globalization of the legal education and the probable entry of foreign lawyers into India poses a serious threat to the legal profession in India generally and to the Indian lawyers and law students in particular. It is transforming virtually every sector of the world’s economy. This transformation has important implications for the rapidly globalizing market for legal services. With the shift of economic powers, India, China and other emerging economies are becoming central powers in this market.
Change is the law of nature and law is the regulator of social change. It is sine qua non for the development of rule of law and a sustainable democratic order. Law is also a social science and it is closely linked with society. A society cannot remain static and therefore, law in order to meet the changing requirements should keep abreast of time. It is not fanciful omnipotence in the sky but a flexible instrument of social order, dependent on the political and other values of the society which it purports to regulate. Thus, through its dynamism it is aspiring to strengthen the foundation of the economic order. In a democratic country like India where rule of law is driving force of the government, legal education assumes great significance. Legal education helps in bringing and establishing socio-economic justice. It is the heart and the very soul of the society for administering rule of law in a democratic country like ours. Therefore, quality legal education is to be imparted to the law students taking into consideration the changing needs of the society and in the changing era of globalization. The traditional views of legal education and research have become relic of the past. Now, a lawyer is expected to serve not only within the country but outside our country. They are also expected to start their carriers with renowned global law firms and global law schools etc. Different opportunities are there before the law students and these are ever widening e.g. legal actors, legislators, judges, civil servants, policy makers, lawyer in defense services, lawyer of banking and insurance sectors, corporate lawyers, corporate lobbyists, legal academicians and editorial writers, jobs in Legal Process Outsourcing(LPO) and many more. The new notion of law and jurisprudence demands a different attitude to legal studies and research. In the changing liberalized and globalized era it would be blunder for the law students to confine themselves only to mere traditional legal texts. They need to pay proper attention to the other related disciplines of study and to equip themselves as valuable knowledge workers and human resources to keep pace with the changing demand of the time.
However, it is in this national and international spectacle, interdisciplinary studies on the interactive dimensions of law, science and economics are gaining importance slowly but surely. Multidisciplinary approach to the study of law is gradually emerging as the need of the hour. Central University of South Bihar (CUSB) has adequate infrastructural facilities to provide the perfect ambience for interdisciplinary studies in law, in its true sense. However, the Department of Law and Governance started its journey since 2013 and has achieved various miles stones within the short span of time. Our students are successfully placed in different legal spheres including as legal academicians, judges, lawyers, corporate law officers, law officers in banks & insurance companies, politicians and what not. Department of Law and Governance under the School of law and governance, CUSB, is not only imbibed with multidisciplinary approach to the legal studies and research but it is making genuine efforts to disseminate such approach to both the privileged and underprivileged learners and researchers of law and jurisprudence. The school is striving towards imparting quality legal education to the students including the students who are from poor, oppressed, downtrodden and backward communities of the society. The mission of the school is to equip the students with critical, analytical and applied skills and also to make both transactional and litigating lawyers.
