AUD aims to offer an interdisciplinary perspective on relationship between law, culture, politics, and social structures.
Rather than treating the law merely as a domain of legal practice or as a body of knowledge reserved for lawyers and legal scholars, the school understands the law to be a contested terrain of practice and knowledge that is best investigated in a creative and collaborative manner.
The University will initially offer advanced postgraduate programs in law for both law and non-law graduates. There is an increasing interest in law as an intellectual and social enquiry from disciplines such as sociology, politics, history etc.
There is also an equal interest that law graduates have in furthering their conversation with other disciplines.
The University will begin with an M.A. Program in Law, Politics and Society and will in the future include other specialized MA and LLM programs including an MA/LLM in Legal and Political Philosophy.
Towards that end, AUD is interested in building a faculty profile that is self-consciously inter disciplinary with an ability to engage with law through innovative pedagogy.
