The challenges for individual institutions and


national higher education systems in this global
environment will depend upon the social, economic,
political and cultural development in developing
nations. In the State of Bihar, where the seeds of the
earliest republic were sown and the crop of democracy
cultivated, a need was felt by the government for a
university which would provide quality legal education
and strive to raise national legal standards to
competitive international level and promote legal
awareness in the community and to inculcate social
responsibility which will lead to the realization of goals

in the 21st century can


truly be a borderless world
of knowledge and ideas,
which will yield reciprocal
