National Law School of India University (NLSIU)

The National Law School of India University (NLSIU) is a public law school and a National Law University located in Bangalore, Karnataka. It was the first National Law University to be established in India as well as one of the first in the country to offer the five-year integrated undergraduate law degree. The National Law School of India University was established by a statute passed by the Legislative Assembly of the State of Karnataka. The statute states that Chief Justice of India serves as the school's chancellor. The day-to-day management and administration of the university is undertaken by the Vice- Chancellor. Prof. Sudhir Krishnaswamy is the current Vice-Chancellor of the university. The school has an intake of around 80 students in its undergraduate law programme, 40 in Masters of Law and 50 in its, recently introduced, Master of Public Policy. The founding of the NLSIU was a culmination of over 2 decades of effort on the part of legal luminaries such a Chief Justice M. Hidayatullah, Ram Jethmalani and Prof. Upendra Baxi. Efforts were being made especially through the Legal Education Committee of the Bar Council of India to establish a university on the lines of the Harvard Law School. These efforts culminated when the Bar Council of India Trust and the Government of Karnataka reached an agreement to found the first National Law University in Bangalore. This agreement was in large part thanks to the leadership of Mr. Vinay Chandra Mishra who was then the Chairman of the Bar Council of India and the enthusiastic support of Ramkrishna Hegde, the then Chief Minister of Karnataka.[2] As such, in 1986, NLSIU was established under the stewardship of its founder, then Vice-Chancellor N.R. Madhava Menon. Prof. Menon was keen on ensuring that the teaching at the university was not conducted in the traditional lecture format, which was then popular across Indian.
