About the University
Aligarh Muslim University is a central University in Aligarh, India, which was originally established by Sir Syed Ahmad Khan as the Muhammadan Anglo Oriental (MAO) College in 1877. The MAO College later became Aligarh Muslim University in 1920.
About the Faculty
The Department of Law, Aligarh Muslim University is one of the oldest Departments in India. The teaching of Law in AMU was introduced in the year 1883. Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, the Founder was greatly impressed by the Programme of Legal Education in British Universities. So he was very keen to have legal education on that pattern in AMU also.
In 1960, the Department of Law came into being into a full-fledged Faculty. Credit goes to Late Prof. Hafizul Rehman (who was also the first Dean) to develop a modern curriculum and research programme. Infact he was the architect of the present Faculty of Law.
