Right from its inception in 1924, the legacy of the ILS College has been continuously nurtured by its robust student community.
We have steadfastly adhered to our motto to impart socially relevant and professionally desired legal education for last 96 years. It is our understanding that nature of Law is not strictly Statist, there are many more actors responsible for creation and production of Law outside the State including society.
The Law is ubiquitous pervading all activities of human life. Law is the foundation of the Universe and everything is centered around it, ‘Dharme Sarvam Prathishtitam’, our moto. Guided by this philosophy of law, we have nourished and flourished ILS’ian culture. With Law and legal profession acquiring the driving seat in the running of global economy, and with law assuming complexities, the study of the impact of globalization on social, economic, legal and political institutions is necessitated and for the accomplishment of the same, we have consciously given an interdisciplinary turn to the pedagogy.
We believe in the continuous evolution of praxis formulating a judicious blend of the law in books and in action. To make the pedagogy dynamic and interactive, the classroom teaching is complemented by moot courts, legal aid, legal literacy, core and legal research. For effective exposure to court crafts and social realities, ILS Law College is a perfect place with state of art, IT facilities, all the major legal databases and one of the most updated libraries in the world. ILS is not just a run of Mill College, it is an institution dedicated to develop the scientific temper, humanism and the spirit of inquiry and reform amongst students and to strive towards excellence in all spheres of individual and collective activity.
I wish you all the best for a very bright and prosperous carrier ahead and aspire to engage in a lasting relationship with all of you as part of ILS family.
