The National Law School of India (NLSIU) started its journey in 1987 under the stewardship of its Founder Director, Dr. N.R. Madhava Menon. The first batch of students joined on July 1, 1988 in the integrated five year B.A., LL.B. (Hons.) Course. The NLSIU started its courses in the premises of the Central College, Bangalore University. The NLSIU moved to its own premises at the present address in 1992. Studying at the NLSIU is quite exciting. It facilitates all round personality development. A large number of retired Judges of the Supreme Court and High Courts as well as Senior Advocates have offered to assist the NLSIU in its teaching and research programmes making education at NLSIU a rare and exciting experience to the student body. The teaching methods adopted for the degree program are such as to promote multi-disciplinary inquiry and practical appreciation of problems. The method of teaching involves lectures, discussions, case studies, Moot Courts and project work. An innovative feature of the teaching method followed by the NLSIU is the cooperative teaching where two or more teachers jointly offer a course and interact with the students in the same class. This is particularly useful for the multi-disciplinary analysis of socio-legal problems. There is a high degree of interaction between the students and the teachers in the classroom. Faculty at the Law School is very accessible. With an excellent faculty-student ratio, the Law School provides an exciting opportunity for the students to interact with the teachers and their colleagues.
