The Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Rohtak will now offer a five-year integrated programme in law (IPL). The course will be offered to students directly after clearing class 12. On completing the five-year course students will be awarded an integrated degree of BBA-LLB.
IIM-Rohtak claims to be the first IIM to introduce a programme in the cross-functional domain of management and law. Students will learn international law, comparative law, foreign law, and domestic law along with business management, international affairs, humanities, public policy, and foreign languages.
Overall, the programme consists of 15 terms spread over a period of five years. Students will also undergo several internships, seminars, and other activities during the course of the programme.
IPL will be a non-residential programme at IIM Rohtak’s extension campus in Gurugram, slated to start from the academic year 2021. The online registrations for this programme have begun from March 16. Students will be selected based on Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) score. Shortlisted candidates will have to pass an interview. The first batch of IPL will start from September 2021.
Prof Dheeraj Sharma, Director at IIM-Rohtak, said, “IIM Rohtak is the first and only IIM in the country to have introduced such an innovative programme that will focus on integrating management and legal education. The programme will result in excellent learning outcomes for participants of this BBA+LLB program that will make them astute lawyers with business management expertise.”
