About Faculty of Law

Banaras Hindu University is an internationally reputed temple of learning, situated in the holy city of Varanasi. This creative and innovative university was founded by the great nationalist leader, Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya, in 1916 with the cooperation of great personalities like Dr. Annie Besant, who perceived it as the University of India. Banaras Hindu University was created under the Parliamentary Legislation - The B.H.U. Act 1915.

Founded by Mahamana Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviyaji in 1916, Banaras Hindu University is one of the most prestigious Central Universities in the country. The University was conceived as a residential university, keeping in view its objective of complete character development and thorough mentoring of students. Perhaps this is the only University in the world where courses ranging from nursery and primary school up to Post Doctoral degrees are conducted and pursued within a walled campus spread over 550 hectares (1360 acres) with majestic buildings of great architectural delight.

It was Mahamana's vision that this center of life and light, would produce students who would not only be intellectually equal to the best of their fellow students in other parts of the world, but will also live a noble life, love their country and be loyal to the Supreme Ruler. He believed that a teaching university would but half perform its function if it does not seek to develop the heart power of its scholars with the same solicitude with which it develops their brain power. Hence, this university has placed the formation of character in youth as one of its principal objects.
