Department of Law at Bangladesh Army International University of Science & Technology (BAIUST) started its journey in September 2018. The Department of Law is committed to provide quality education and also strive to instil moral values into the students. Law is much more than principles and provisions-it is about justice, equity and fairness as well as the values around which societies organized themselves through orderly institutions. Law is also intertwined with the economy, development, business and the emerging globalized order. For a jurist, the law does not exist in a vacuum and law is very closely related to and interacts with other social forces and issues and as a social engineer, a law student has to act and to react with/against these social forces and issues. Hence, a law student at the BAIUST Department of Law will also take up subjects from other disciplines.

Moreover, in a society advancing rapidly, it is the law that gives the lead to society and places before it ideals and values to which people should conform. Recognizing BAIUST's background, BAIUST's commitment and goal, the Department of Law would endeavour and strive to impart education to seek the legal solution that respects social, cultural and aesthetic needs of the people and prepare tomorrows lawyers to meet the challenges of the new millennium and the realities of globalization.
