UGC has released the updated syllabus for the UGC NET Law 2019 Exam to be conducted by the NTA. The new UGC NET 2019 Law syllabus will be applicable from the June 2019 NET onward. The changes are across both the General Paper 1 and the subject specific Paper 2’s for all subjects.

A crucial aspect of the new syllabus is the introduction of new areas and topics – such as ‘Comparative Public Law and Systems of Governance‘ and also the increase in the scope of the syllabus for ‘Environment & Human Rights Law‘, ‘Intellectual Property Rights and Information Technology Law‘.

Traditional areas like Jurisprudence and Constitutional & Administrative Law have been carried over; while there have been some additional topics introduced into Commercial Law, Consumer Protection and Public International Law.

There is no specific indication about the weightage for each area. At this time, there is no further information if negative marking will be introduced into the UGC NET June 2019 exam.

The precise details of the question paper pattern may be published only when the official UGC NET Law 2019 exam official announcement is release by the NTA – UGC.
