Dean's Message

Choosing the right programme that comes with the appropriate facilities and ambience for study is any parent’s priority. Thus, the question arises, why HELP for Law?

Allow us to introduce you to the philosophy of the Faculty. HELP University has been enjoying the privilege of being the first private university to introduce the UK Degree Transfer Programme (Law) which has been recognised by prestigious and reputable universities in the UK. To date, we have as our partners Cardiff University, University of the West of England, Bristol, Aberystwyth University, University of Liverpool, University of Manchester, University of Sheffield, Northumbria University, University of Hertfordshire and the University of Leeds. The programme has also received full accreditation from the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA).

Our students have delivered sterling performances in their examinations. We have to date produced more than 86 First Class Honours Achievers in the UK Degree Transfer Programme (Law). We were also commended in 2011 by the assessors of the Joint Academic Stage Board (JASB) which is a joint committee of the Bar Standards Board and the Solicitors Regulation Authority for the best practices adopted at the Faculty level in the administration and teaching of the UK Law Degree Transfer Programme.

2009 also saw the Department expand by introducing its own Bachelor of Laws Honours degree. The Bachelor of Laws Honours degree has received full accreditation from the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) is pending recognition from the Malaysian Legal Profession Qualifying Board (MLPQB).

The Faculty assures you of quality teaching as we have teaching faculty who are experienced, dedicated and qualified, some of whom were former practitioners who have turned to full time academic life. We believe that great careers are built on firm foundations. Our approach is holistic. We strive to listen, to learn, and to help students define their dreams and achieve their aspirations.

My HELP experience was enriching and memorable. The dedication and commitment by my lecturers in nurturing and guiding me helped me tremendously in completing my Law degree well. HELP also taught me never to settle for mediocrity.
