Two-credit certificate course on Advanced contracts by Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law


The Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law (RGNUL), Punjab, was established by the State Legislature of Punjab by passing the Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law, Punjab Act, 2006 (Punjab Act No. 12 of 2006). The Act incorporated a University of Law of national stature in Punjab, to fulfil the need for a Centre of Excellence in legal education in
the modern era of globalization and liberalization. Recently the University has earned a coveted status of being one of the top-ranking law teaching institutions in the Country. Over 1000 students acquire state of art legal education in a well-furnished and fully developed residential campus which boasts of all necessary infrastructural and manpower facilities for the all-round growth of the students. RGNUL is currently emphasizing on research, training, and consultancy in various areas of contemporary interest. It envisages to be a research-intensive university in the times to come.

About the Course

Following the understanding of the ‘general principles of contracts’, ‘specific remedies and reliefs’, and having
understood the ‘concept of specific contracts’ (like contracts of indemnity, guarantee, bailment, agency, partnership and sale of goods), now the time has come when it is obligatory and indispensable to look at the new facets of contractual jurisprudence which confronts modern-day contracts hitherto uncharted and unexplored at least at the undergraduate (UG) level in law schools, colleges and universities. These specialised, innovative, and ground-breaking contracts, arising from simple contracts and accomplishing a lot of desirable goals in a free market economy, must be studied at the undergraduate level to accommodate the new demands of users and consumers surrounded by the framework of different laws.
This course, hence, focuses on the contemporary forms of business contracts and exposits on the historical evolution,
judicial interpretation and future applications of such contracts. This course is, therefore, designed with a view to
appreciate and understand this emerging field, to prepare the students to meet the challenges of the 21st century,
and to serve a social purpose — besides the dissemination of legal knowledge in this vital sector of jurisprudence.
