University of Peradeniya

Welcome to the Department of Law


The Department of Law, established in 2009, offers a unique four-year LL.B Degree which has an interdisciplinary approach towards legal education. With its strong social justice orientation, the LL.B degree program focusses on the interaction between law and society, whereby undergraduate students would be provided with an understanding of the role of law in addressing social problems. The Department of Law undergraduate curriculum has been designed in a manner that would achieve this objective.

In the first year of their study, the undergraduate students would obtain an understanding on foundations of law and thereafter substantive areas of law would be covered in their second, third and fourth year of study. A special feature of the LL.B Degree program is providing practical training through courses such as Mooting and Clinical Legal Education.Thereby undergraduate students will not only have a thorough understanding about legal concepts and theories but would also be equipped with practical skills required for a professional career.
