The age of Globalization and liberalization has totally changed the face of legal profession creating a huge demand of corporate lawyers in India and abroad. And to answer this need of changing times, the law institutions are coming forward to cope-up with this changing scenario. And at such a time how can the globally recognized M S University lag behind? Starting of BSLS is a constructive step in this direction.
Over the years, the Faculty has expanded quantitatively as well as qualitatively to meet the ever-increasing educational needs of the Cosmopolitan city of Vadodara. The Faculty of Law has produced several eminent lawyers and judges of the Gujarat High Court.
The function of law is to understand the how, what and why of law. The academicians (students, teachers and research scholars),  lawyers and judges are he three pillars in the legal field. The lawyer needs to know the how of the law. What of the law should be known to the judges. While the academicians should be the masters of the why of the law.
Globalization, liberalization and the information technology revolution have had a profound impact on law and legal institutions worldwide and in India. A rapidly growing global market in legal services and information has changed the structure of the legal profession in India as well. To answer this global need a new and totally innovative legal thinking is required. With this object in mind, faculty of law has given birth to Baroda School of Legal Studies  to advance and disseminate learning and knowledge of law and to make law and legal process an efficient instrument of social development.
This course aims to chisel out bright and brilliant lawyers out of raw teenagers. Baroda School of Legal Studies shall be imparting Five Years Integrated Law Degree Course, which shall aim at developing a new vision for legal education in India.
