National Law School of India University

The National Law School of India University at Bangalore was established under the National Law School of India University act (Karnataka Act 22 of 1986). The Act was notified in the official Gazette August 29, 1987. The Act is the basic governing document for the University and all persons associated with it.
The concept of a national institution to act as a pace-setter and a testing ground for bold experiments in legal education came up before the Bar Council of India in the context of the Council's statutory responsibility for maintaining standards in professional legal education under the Advocates Act, 1961.
The co-operation of the Karnataka Government, the Bangalore University and the initiatives of senior members of the Bar Council of India as well as that of Karnataka State Bar Council gave the project distinct possibilities of realization over the years. The idea gained more supporters in course of time within the Council and outside who worked at different levels to establish the institution in the interest of better legal education and higher standards of legal research and training.
A large number of retired Judges of the Supreme Court and High Courts as well as Senior Advocates have offered to assist the NLSIU in its teaching and research programmes making education at NLSIU a rare and exciting experience to the student body. The NLSIU started its journey in 1987 under the stewardship of its Founder Director, Dr. N.R. Madhava Menon.
