The College, an institution of Indian Centre for Advancement of Research and Education (ICARE), is affiliated to Vidyasagar University and approved by the Bar Council of India. The main object of establishing HLC is to produce new generation of lawyers by providing quality legal education through innovative techniques. HLC keeps pace with the fast-changing technology and the on-going process of globalization by providing the scope of in-depth research in the interactive dimensions of law, economics and society. HLC not only looks at law as an instrument for social change and human well-being but also considers law as an effective managerial tool for rule-based economic governance.
The Law College at Haldia is buttressed with the surrounding ICARE Institutions like Engineering College, Paramedical College and the Institute of Maritime Studies and Research and thus provides the most perfect and congenial atmosphere for interdisciplinary studies in Law, in its real sense.
The College offers Five-Years Integrated B.A. LL.B. (Hons.) Course , Three-Years LL.B. Course and Two years LL.M. course. A student whether of the LL.B. Course or the LL.M. Course, is exposed to a wide range of branches of law. The highly innovative curriculum followed by the College not only adheres to the recommendations of the Bar Council of India but it includes papers which go well with the ground reality of Haldia like, Marine Law, Environmental Law or Port Management and Law.
The College campus with a majestic building architecture as a temple of Justice ensures personal attention and care of the students. The College also follows a non-traditional teacher-student relationship and continuous system of evaluation to assess the performance of a student from the day when he/she steps into the College so that examination does not become a mere test of memory.
The College has got the perfect ambience to establish itself as a centre of distinction in legal studies and research and we all are putting in the most serious and genuine efforts for achieving the desired professional and academic excellence.
