UGC NET Syllabus for Law

UGC NET Syllabus for Law, Code No: 58

Law: Law is a term which does not have a universally accepted definition,
but one definition is that law is a system of rules and guidelines which are
enforced through social institutions to govern behaviour. Laws can be made
by legislatures through legislation (resulting in statutes), the executive
through decrees and regulations, or judges through binding precedents
(normally in common law jurisdictions). Private individuals can create legally
binding contracts, including (in some jurisdictions) arbitration agreements
that exclude the normal court process. The formation of laws themselves
may be influenced by a constitution (written or unwritten) and the rights
encoded therein. The law shapes politics, economics, and society in various
ways and serves as a mediator of relations between people.

Question Pattern: There will be two question papers - UGC NET

total whereas Paper III will have 150 marks in total. Paper II will cover fifty
