ILS History Club

The ILS History Club was established in 2017.

Aims and Objectives:

  • To encourage the students of law to take a pride and interest in our legacy, be it the Legal history, Political history, Constitutional history, Social and Economic history or the Religious history of India.
  • To connect and correlate the interdependence of Law with History and thereby to make the study of law and the legal institutions more interesting.
  • To reckon the need and purpose of including History as an integral part of LLB and BA LLB Courses by the Bar Council of India.
  • Increase an awareness of the significance and utility of the subject of legal history.
  • Utilization of the historic materials and sources with advantage for the furtherance of legal study.


Most of the Legal institutions in India, in the present day, be it the court system or the laws and statutes, the legislative procedures, the jurisprudence, the Bar and the Bench and concepts like democracy, separation of powers, rule of law, judicial process, precedents, etc take their roots in the deep past. Therefore, it becomes even more imperative to understand the history or the past to appreciate the present in their true perspective.

A student of law who aspires to be an advocate, a jurist, legislator or an academician in the future may not play a successful part in the social engineering if he were to imbibe legal knowledge merely as a mechanical learning of law as a body of rules or policy from the theoretical or academic point of law, for he would never know why or how they were evolved and what were the challenges faced in the course of their evolution, growth and development.
