The Bangalore Institute of Legal Studies (BILS) was established in the year 1993, though the roots lie way back. The committee that oversees the institute BHS started its work from before independence in 1942. BILS is now seeking additional autonomy. The leadership at BILS is particularly a strength as the agenda- setters have been recruited from different, but relevant walks of life. They have been drawn from academics, government and industry. As is the norm now across the country, a 5- year dual BA LLB degree is run by the institute, for students who have just cleared their school leaving exams. There is no lateral entry or exit from this course, so the full 5- year term has to be completed to avail of any of the degrees.
Beyond the academics, there are several other areas where the institute takes a keen interest in students’ development. There is a clinic dedicated to training on legal aid. Moot court contests are periodically held. A research centre has been installed by the name of B– CARL. Its purpose is to instil a sense of research ability among the students. All this reflects upon admissions, as the positive feedback has travelled far and wide. There are students from 10 different states. Among them, nearly half the students are females. The girls’ hostel is right within the campus, while the boys’ is outside. There are both need as well as merit-based scholarships. BILS also has a seminar hall, digital lab, canteen and multiple bank and branches and ATMs. There are also ample sports facilities on- campus. The institute’s location is another big advantage as the dean has mentioned in his message plastered on the web home page. He clearly states how being located in Bengaluru, especially close to the main courts, facilitates a lot of exposure for the students. These students, are in turn well- versed with real-life situations when the challenge is presented to them.
The students as well as the faculty have won several national and regional level awards. For internal practice and competition, clubs and committees have also been installed locally. There are self- explanatory committees on- Literary, Cultural and Moot Court. Students can and have enrolled for the NSS (National Service Scheme). In this way, they hone the values of discipline and self- sacrifice. All kinds of companies visit the campus for recruitment purpose. The recruitment is both final from campus, as well as while a student is presently studying for internship purpose. Some students even participate in live projects. Recruiters may be law firms, NGOs, or corporates. Some of the key recruiters include- Dua Associates, Holla & Holla, Bajaj Allianz, Wipro, Infosys, Teach for India, PETA, Green Peace, Ind Law, Khaitan and Indian Red Cross Society among many others. The careful student selection process has ensured that the final list includes serious students, who want to make a difference as professionals. With the silver jubilee celebrations set to begin, the college can look back to two- and- a half decades of service.
