Constitutional Law

This section comprises various rules, practices, and principles regulating the functioning of a modern state and other political parties. Questions are asked to candidates based on topics they have studied in their graduation.


It is also called the "law philosophy." It is divided into three separate parts- (i) analytical, (ii) sociological, and (iii) theoretical. The questions in this section will be considered as per the syllabus prescribed in the graduation degree.

The Tort Law

It is the recent common legislation in India focused on the codification of statutes and their damages. Some of the important tortuous obligations, such as Negligence, Nuisance, and Defamation, should be thoroughly revised.


This can be called a legal document which is a mutual agreement between two or more parties and which can be implemented by law. Important decisions taken by the Supreme Court and the High Court in relation to modern commercial activities form a very important part of this subject.

Criminal law

Also known as penal law which is planned to regulate the Social Code of Conduct and prohibit antisocial behavior which threatens citizens protection, property, health and moral well-being. Special attention should be paid to important topics related to the principles of criminal liability and men's rea ("guilty mind" in criminal law).

International Law

As a subject, international law focuses on the set of legal guidelines and contracts regulating the relations between two states and nations. It is broadly classified as Public International law, Private International Law and Supranational Law.
