Dean's Message



              Following the University's motto of 'For the Motherland for Ever', the Faculty of Law of General Sir John Kotelawala Defence University has devoted itself to the advancement of legal theories and practices. The Faculty focuses on innovation and skill development in legal research and practices; it is a modern Faculty of law in the forefront of twenty first century with distinct disciplinary features, and a pool of talented Faculty and students. Today, changing global scenarios and the country's new development strategies have placed higher requirements for legal theories and practices. In answering to these requirements, four themes - globalization, innovation, transparency and responsibility - have emerged as the Faculty's guiding principles for research and education. The Faculty consists of two academic departments and annually admits about 100 students. The Faculty conducts a four years LL.B. Special Degree Programme in Law. Also, the Faculty offers a two year LL.M. Degree Programme. Dissemination of legal knowledge through publishing text books and conducting legal Aid Camps for the benefit of rural school children and training programmes for secondary school teachers are among the main activities of the Faculty today.

      I am ready to grasp this critical moment in time and, together with our students, staff and Faculty, to create a community that is innovative and harmonious, create a platform that celebrates intellect and individuality. Most importantly, I would create a pathway for preparing young minds and future leaders who would be able to navigate the world of tomorrow.

      Thank you for visiting our web site. We hope to see you soon and then we can truly and personally welcome you to the Faculty of Law and Kotelawala defence University.
