It conducts a five year BA LLB and one year LLM course. AIL has emerged as a hub of scholastic brilliance and owes this to a team of highly qualified and erudite faculty members who lend a critical perspective to contemporary issues facilitating students' comprehension and interpretation of various laws and statutes. With 'Aspire & Achieve' as its motto, the Institute has grown as a Centre of Excellence in the field of legal education. Army Institute of Law continues to pace ahead on the growth trajectory in consonance with the highest standards in the field of education.
