The college life at NLSIU Bangalore was phenomenal. With the country's best law library and an institution in place which helps you to think and work in the right direction, couldn't have asked for anything more. Seniors have been the guiding light where the teachers failed. The faculty has gone to the dogs. But the institution has mechanisms in place to compensate for it. Those who want to learn, get loads to learn. Lots of extracurriculars, debates moots, sports and even music are encouraged and supported. This is accompanied by the beautiful weather that Bangalore has and this is what I crave for the most, now that I have graduated. The vice chancellor is one of the foremost academicians in the country and is a lovely person as well, always ready to help. The university doesn't have a dress code and free thinking is encouraged in every sphere of the university life.

NLSIU, The Promised Land

NLSIU is hands down the best college in India to do your law from. We have a diverse and vibrant student community, drawn from all parts of India and abroad. The place is always abuzz with activity, with some event or another always around the corner. However, this is not to say that academics are overlooked. In fact, one of the things that make NLS stands apart from the crowd is how the students excel in both academics and extra-curricular activities. We have decent infrastructure for a government college, and the exposure we get is unmatched. The classrooms are often frequented by the very best in their field, giving students exposure they would not otherwise get. NLS has consistently been leading the placement charts as well, and NLS pass out generally eke out a decent living after graduating from here. Hostels could be a bit cleaner, though. Buth hey, you cannot have it all. We have stellar professors here, again the very best in their field. The fees may seem a bit too steep at first, but once admitted, the college makes sure that you do not quit your education midway for financial reasons. Plus, the amount of money that you put in is only a minuscule amount of what you would reap later out of your NLS education.

The best choice for those who want a career in law

I am a 2nd-year student at NLSIU. Our college has a library which is better than that of most of other law schools in India. Talking of corporate exposure, we have regular seminars and guest lectures regarding that, and our college has best placement among National Law Schools. Our hostels are quite good, but there are still chances of improvement. I met some excellent professors. They are all helpful in a not just academic way but also as personal guides. Speaking of Student crowd, we have almost all top rank students in CLAT. The annual fee is about Rs. 1,70,000, which is on par with most of other National Law Universities. So, overall, I think this is one of the best National Law Schools in India, and I am happy that I made a correct decision by choosing it.

About College:

The group of institutions collectively known as the National Law Universities (NLUs) now number over twenty. Most of them recruit students using the CLAT (Common Law Admission Test) scores. This is considered the flagship exam, which gives entry to some of the finest Law colleges in the country. The competition for this is immense. The test includes 200 objective type multiple choice questions to be answered within a maximum time limit of 120 minutes. These 200 questions are divided into Legal Aptitude and GK hogging half the total share with 50 questions each. English and Reasoning are worth 40 each while math which is quite elementary is worth 20. For every wrong answer, a fourth of negative marks gets deducted. Success in this exam, opens the door towards some of the best national law colleges (NLUs). CLAT is also one of the few law entrances that were conducted on online mode, but has now reverted to the offline avatar. 

For long, law lagged behind several other professional and degree courses when it came to prestige and career opportunities, but now, thanks to the NLUs, it is considered a top career choice. With the opening up of the economy, law grads can now take up careers in corporate law, international agencies, NGOs, Legal Process Outsourcing (LPOs) firms and academics, besides the conventional careers centres around litigation and the judiciary. This was the reason for the launch of the five- year integrated programmes by the NLUs which can be taken up by students immediately after completion of their school. 

The National Law School of India University (NLSIU) in Bengaluru was the first of the NLUs to be formed in the year 1986. It was modelled on the lines of the Harvard Law School. By 1991, the NLSIU had become a fully- residential campus. It is built on a total area of 23- acres of land. Courses are available here at the NLSIU right from the UG till doctoral levels. At the UG level, the flagship five- year integrated programme BA LLB is offered. The LLB of course is the standard degree offered to Common Law countries’ legal study graduates. At the master’s level, there are two courses available here. One is the LLM which is a one- year programme. The other is the two -year MPP (Master of Public Policy). The M. Phil and PhD. are field- oriented degrees. Some distance learning and online certifications may also be undertaken from the NLSIU. 

The institute is also a leader when it comes to legal research. For this purpose, specific centres of excellence have been created to facilitate the same. There are centres here for the areas of – Outreach Programmes, Labour Studies, Cyber Laws & Forensics, Intellectual Property Research & Advocacy, Environmental- Education & Research, Social Exclusion & Inclusive Policy, Child & the Law and for Women & the Law. Within the NLSIU, there is also a National Institute of Human Rights (NIHR) and the National Institute for Alternate Dispute Resolution (NIADR). There is also the TILEM which expands to The Institute of Law and Ethics in Medicine. The International Bar Association- Continuing Legal Education Centre (IBA- CLE) looks after the aspect as understood from the title. 

The NLSIU being such an important centre, also has multiple Endowment Chairs. There is one for instance on Constitutional Law named after Shri MK Nambiar. There is a UNHCR (United Nations High Commission for Refugees) Chair on Refugee Law. Another is the NHRC (National Human Rights Commission) Chair on Human Rights. The leading financial institution ICICI has set up a chair on business laws. Top corporate house Reliance has done one for Corporate Law & Governance. The Ministry of Commerce has established the Chair on WTO (World Trade Organization). Other prestigious chairs have been set up for the tasks such as – ADR, Public Law & Public Policy, Juvenile Justice, IPR (Intellectual Property Rights), PIL (Public Interest Litigation), Revenue, Urban Poor & the Law and one on Business Laws besides some others. 

The largest law library in India is present here, known as the Melgiri Memorial National Law Library. All student activities get monitored within the SBA (Student Bar Association). Several committees have been formed within the SBA. These are for the areas such as – Academic Support, Cultural & Fine Arts, Finance, Event Management, Law & Society, Law & Technology, Literary & Debating, Sports, Moot Court, Promotion of Legal Awareness and a Legal Services Clinic. The NLSIU has forever stood for the spirit of competitive, parliamentary debating, which it continues encouraging. Moot court contests are also held here.  

The NLSIU has also forged strong ties with academic partners abroad. Student exchange programmes are run with these institutions. These institutions are based in the countries such as – USA, Canada, Germany, Australia, Switzerland, Italy, Singapore, France, Sweden, the Netherlands, Israel, Taiwan, Spain, and the Republic of South Africa. All this and much more has prompted all rankings platforms to place the NLSIU extremely high up all tables. Among law institutions, it was ranked 1st at the NIRF (National Institutional Rankings Framework) 2018.
