About NLSIU

The National Law School of India University came into existence through a Notification under the National Law School of India University Act (Karnataka Act 22 of 1986). It signified the culmination of efforts by the Judiciary, the Bar Council of India, the Karnataka Bar Council, the Bangalore University and the Government of Karnataka to reform legal education and to establish a centre of excellence for legal education and research in India. This Law School successfully caters to the requirements of the legal profession, law teaching and research, and judiciary in India and it is typical for the students who study in this School to eventually become legal practitioners, law teachers or engage in legal research or enter the judiciary in due course.
The Chief Justice of India is the Chancellor of the University. The Chairman, Bar Council of India, is the Chairman of the General Council. These connections lend a stature and prestige to the School which is unparalleled in the history of legal education in India.
