The Law programme's main focus is to create an environment that encourages intellectual rigour, analytical and critical engagement, and profound ethical standards. The programme will produce law graduates who can globally compete in legal, social, economic, and political developments.

Graduates of the programme would be able to deliver competently on the expectations of employers and other users of their services in government, legal practice and academics. In this sense, the Law programme has been designed to ensure that Law graduates have a robust general knowledge of the law and a clear understanding of the law's place and importance in society.
