Faculty of Law
The Faculty of Law of the General Sir John Kotelawala Defence University was originally established in 2011 with 22 students with the view of providing legal education to the officer cadets which would assist in qualifying them to become legal advisers to the tri-forces in Sri Lanka. Presently, the faculty accommodates over 100 students who fall in to following categories.
|1.||The Officer Cadets who are permanently recruited to the Armed Forces to serve as legal officers in the legal divisions of the respective forces as commissioned officers after graduation.|
|2.||The fee levying Volunteer Force Officer Cadets who, after commissioning and graduation, would be opted to mobilize or demobilize depending on the national needs of the country.|
|3.||The students who are admitted to the Faculty as day scholars on fee levying basis.|
The Faculty which offers both undergraduate and post graduate level degree programmes provides them with a dynamic academic experience with an innovative curriculum. Our aim is to produce academics and professionals who can make a significant contribution towards the development of the law and who would regard the maintenance of the independence and the fairness of the system of administration of justice as their prime duty. The commitment of the faculty is to continue to be recognized as a well-equipped leading seat of learning law among other competitive law schools in national, regional and international level.
