Message from the Dean
ICLS offers a diverse number of international qualifications to choose from and is the only institute to offer such a wide range of options under one roof. ICLS is an epicentre for all individuals who wish to be a part of the legal fraternity.
I have worked directly with the University of London for more than 19 years and it is my pleasure to welcome you all to ICLS to be a part of this world-renowned International Programme.
ICLS is a dream project with the aim of providing a complete law school experience and a focus on diversity and inclusivity. You will find at your disposal the best legal minds of the country in the shape of your teachers, counsellors and mentors. ICLS aims for excellence that is unmatched anywhere. Our students have been instrumental and fulfilling the vision with which this college was started.
“Equality, justice, and fair play to everybody” were the ideals on which Quaid-e-Azam M.A. Jinnah expected Pakistani democracy to be built. Therefore, we welcome talented students from all backgrounds, approaches, ambitions, interests, and perspectives.
No matter who you are, whatever you do, however you do it, ICLS is a place where you can flourish. We wish for you to be a part of this community of lawyers that study, teach, write, debate, explore, question, innovate, litigate, arbitrate, mediate, negotiate, advocate peace and pursue the highest ideals of rule of law and justice.
With all your training at ICLS, you will become dynamic members of the local as well as the international legal fraternity. We see each one of you as a catalyst for change, contributing within the ambit of law and society.
We wish for you to be a part of reputable institutions at home and abroad, representing your country at international forums, creating a niche for yourself, doing us proud!
Your development will be unfettered at ICLS and we will help you succeed and fulfil your potential. Work hard and be kind to one another. These are trying times and we have to bring out the best of humanity wherever we are. Know that we dare to be different. You should be the change that you wish to see!
