Semester Exchange - National University of Advanced Legal Studies
The National University of Advanced Legal studies is a uni-disciplinary university in Kochi, India for undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate legal education, and is situated in Kochi, the industrial capital of Kerala and the seat of the Kerala High Court in a 10 acre in the Kinfra Hi-Tech Park at Kalamassery. NUALS was established to advance and disseminate learning and knowledge of law and legal processes, to develop scholarship and a sense of responsibility towards society and to promote legal and judicial reforms to strengthen the administration of justice in India. The Chief Justice of India is the Visitor, the Chief Justice of the High Court of Kerala is the Chancellor, and the Minister for Education, Kerala state is the Pro-Chancellor of the University.
The National University of Advanced Legal Studies (NUALS) was established by Act 27 of 2005 of the Kerala State Legislature. By the same Act, the National Institute for Advanced Legal Studies (NIALS) established by the Bar Council of Kerala Trust in 2002 merged with the NUALS. This university offers studies within a diverse range of fields of law, including Law and Development, Law and Economics, Environmental Law, Consumer Protection Law and Policy, Women and Family Studies, Human Rights, and more. Kochi has been drawing traders, explorers and travellers to its shores for over 600 years. Nowhere else in India could you find such an intriguing mix: giant fishing nets from China, a 400-year-old synagogue, ancient mosques, Portuguese houses and the crumbling remains of the British Raj. The result is an unlikely blend of medieval Portugal, Holland and an English village grafted onto the tropical Malabar Coast, making it a magnificent place to complete a study exchange.
