Osmania University College of Law

The Faculty of Law, Osmania University has wonderful history of more than one century. There was a law class which launched in 1899 as to give instruction in law those students who were longing for legal profession. The law class also conducted Judicial Test classes for Judicial Officers.

Afterward, in the year 1923 the law class and judicial test culminated into Law Department in the Osmania University at Art College. It has been a very successful experiment of teaching law in vernacular language, Urdu. At that time Urdu was court language as well. There was a translation bureau whose work was to translate all foremost textbooks into Urdu. Normally, the classes were in the morning and there were total hundred students.

The Osmania University introduced an LL.M. Programme in 1942 with compulsory subject:

  • Comparative Jurisprudence
  • Comparative Constitutional Law

The above mentioned subjects were compulsory along with either of the optional subjects:

  • International Law
  • Muslim Law or Hindu Law

The students of LL.M. course at Osmania University had to submit a thesis. The thesis was based on a subject they were studying in LL.B. and LL.M. Since the faculty of law had been providing excellent education, the demand for admission to legal programme was increased and as a result the law department of the Arts College has been culminated into Law College in 1950 and the medium of instruction has been moved from Urdu to English. The Law College shifted to Saifabad Science College in the city, Hyderabad.

There was no choice for LL.M. students as all subjects were compulsory with the exception of choice between Muslim and Hindu Law. But afterwards, some of the subjects introduced including:

  • Constitutional and International Law

Sinha, inaugurated The University College of Law in 1960. Prof. G.C.V. Subba Rao had the honour of being the first principal of the Law College.
