National Law School of India University (NLS), Bangalore established in 1986 by a statute passed by Karnataka Legislature, is the first Indian Law University. It became functional in 1988. It is the only Law School sponsored by the Bar Council of India with a view to raising the standard of legal education in India. Leading lawyers, judges and academicians have been associating with the law school from the very beginning and in this way; the NLSIU represents the unique partnership among the Bar, the Bench and the Academia.
The Law School was established with a view to cater to the requirements of the legal profession, law teaching and research, and judiciary and it is expected that the students who study in this School will eventually become legal practitioners, law teachers or engage in legal research or enter the judiciary in due course. The Law School has made web-based legal education and interaction a reality in the areas of distance education programs and for that purpose improved infrastructural facilities to answer the needs.
According to the National Knowledge Commission’s “Working Group on Legal Education”, there is an immediate need to improve the quality of legal education and research throughout university law departments and colleges in the country. Achieving this should not be seen as an empty challenge but an opportunity to put legal education at par with engineering, medicine, and other ‘sought after’ professions. One can argue that since the first National Law School came up in Bangalore in 1989 things have already undergone a significant change. Over the last few decades “law” is becoming an increasingly important career choice for those fresh out of school. Hundreds of ‘CLAT coaching centres’ have mushroomed all over the nation as aspirants begin preparing well in advance to get into a NLU.
