The library is the ‘heart’ of any academic institution and plays an important role in all academic activities and, the more so, in law institutions. This is a three-storied building of 30,000 sq.ft. built-up area with ample space for storage of books and for reading purposes. The library has been planned keeping in view the aims and objectives of the Law School, and is being operated by a team of professionally qualified library staff guided by the Library Council.

From its inception, the School has taken efforts to build sports facilities for students. Currently, the Law School has a basketball court, a tennis court, and indoor facilities for table tennis at the hostels and in the Academic block. A couple of years ago, a new fitness center with state-of-the-art equipments was also inaugurated. Arrangements have been made with the Sports Authority of India complex nearby for the use of their facilities. Plans for a multipurpose sports facility within the Law School campus, in the newly acquired 5 acres of land, is underway.
The IT infrastructure has grown tremendously over the past few years. The bandwidth for Internet Services has been increased almost tenfold and is now 12 Mbps.

The Moot Court Society (MCS) is the student committee entrusted with the responsibility of administering mooting activities and upholding the high standards of excellence that the NLSIU has set itself. Mooting as an activity can perhaps best be described as the closest one comes to being a lawyer while still in law school - it involves identifying legal issues in situations, exhaustive research in that area of law, followed by extensive written submissions and gruelling orals before a bench of eminent judges, in short, everything a lawyer is expected to do.
