Established in the year 1999, the Army Institute of Law was founded by the Army Welfare Education Society. This Mohali law school offers 5 year undergraduate and 2 year postgraduate degrees to the children of the Army personnel, including war widows, adopted children and other defense personnel, and even civilians (each have a quota). The courses offered are recognized by the Punjab University and also approved by the Bar Council of India. Along with theoretical knowledge, practical learning is given equal importance. Moot court competitions, high court and lok adalat visits are integral parts of the course. Students studying in this institute do not need to sign a bond for serving in the army after their course completion. The institute, in fact, provides placement and judicial service training and most of the students after passing out with a degree get placed in different sectors such as corporate firms, courts, prosecution departments, and advocate chambers.

Admission to this institution is based on the scores from the entrance tests. Students will need to apply for the entrance test through the college (for undergraduate course) and the university (for the postgraduate course). The intake capacity is 80 for B.A. L.L.B. and 15 for L.L.M. Students who are selected, need to stay in the hostels located inside the college campus.
