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.
