The Andhra Mahila Sabha Law College for Women was established by Andhra Mahila Sabha, a Social Service Organization in 1991. The College was constituted as a mark of respect towards Padma Vibhushan Dr (Smt) Durgabai Deshmukh who founded AMS. It is a private institution and probably the only women’s law college in Andhra Pradesh. The College is recognized by the Bar Council of India with its affiliation to Osmania University. One of the remarkable achievements of the college is its excellent teaching faculty who always put their maximum efforts to introduce new teaching techniques and providing training to students. This has developed the skills of budding lawyers in the academics and has contributed to best results every year. More than 90 percent of the law students in this college have passed the University exams by securing Distinctions and first class. Some of the students were awarded god medals by the University for their Academic Brilliance.
The AMS College of Law offers Bachelor of Law or LLB (3 year) course along with LLM (2 year) course with specialization in Labor Laws on regular basis. The college has also started Centre for Sri Padmavathi Mahila Vishwavidyalayam which offers 3 year LLM with dissertation with specialization in Constitutional Law and Administrative Law. The candidates with 40 percent marks in the Bachelor’s degree and cleared the Common Admission test conducted by the State are eligible for admission to LLB Course. The candidates with 45 percent marks in degree examination can obtain admission in management quota without passing the entrance test. The Andhra Pradesh State Council for Education conducts a Common Admission Test at State level for the LLM Programme. The candidates also have to secure 45 percent marks in LLB to get admission for LLM. This is not applicable in case of management quota.
The students of the college participate in moot court competitions with the assistance of faculties. The students also take part in debates, essay writing competitions etc. Yet another achievement is the practical legal training conducted by the institution. The college organizes legal aid camps in the rural areas that helps to create general legal awareness among the poor and weak sections. The students will also get the opportunity to visit various colleges, Juvenile home etc as part of their legal aid camp.
