Situated about 10 Kms from Bangalore City railway station the National Law School now has a campus spread over 23 acres in idyllic setting. It is approachable easier from the Nagarbhavi end of the Bangalore University’s Jnana Bharathi campus. The Law School is a fully residential university with independent residential facilities for men and women students, the Faculty and non teaching staff. With all its 500 odd students from all over India, the Faculty and non teaching staff residing on the same campus it is like a miniature India. With such interaction comes the greater need to adjust and share opinions, an outlook necessary for budding lawyers. Residing on campus would thus enable the students to widen their horizon and acquire important inter-personal skills.
The first building on the campus came up in 1992 and today it has the Academic Block, three Halls of Residence each for men and women students, two Hostels for post- graduate women students, thr
ee blocks of Faculty Quarters and two blocks of residences as quarters for non teaching staff.
An International Training Centre, with residential facilities, equipped for organising training programmes, seminars and video conferences is pa

The National Law School strives to provide for a high quality, efficient and secure infrastructure that would enhance the productivity of all its users. To ensure this, the IT infrastructure and services is being constantly reviewed, maintained and updated by a separate IT Committee consisting of a few faculty members and technical staff. The technical staff is encouraged to constantly update their knowledge through periodic training programs.

The IT infrastructure has grown tremendously over the past few years. The bandwidth for Internet Services has been increased almost tenfold and is now 12 Mbps. This caters to the wireless network in the classrooms, academic block, library, hostels and faculty blocks. A relatively new computer lab is located at the library. The infrastructure has been recently overhauled to improve the quality of the internet facility.

All classrooms are equipped with computers and projectors. To further enhance the quality of classroom experience “E-Class” equipments are installed in a few classrooms. This will soon be extended to other classrooms.

A good video conferencing facility is also provided to enable students to benefit from faculty located in other places within and outside India.

Hostel Facilities:
The National Law School campus with all its 500 odd students and the faculty residing in the same campus is a like a miniature India. With such interaction comes the greater need to adjust and share opinions, and to build an outlook necessary to become budding lawyers. Residing on campus enables students to widen their horizon and acquire important inter-personal skills.

There are three Halls of Residence for men known by the names Ganga, Cauvery and Himalaya and three Halls of Residence for women known as Nilgiris, Annexe and Mess Block. In addition there are two P.G. Women’s Hostels. Students of the first year are generally provided separate accommodation. While the first year students are allotted dormitories, from the second year onwards, they have the option of triple seater rooms, which are T-shaped and, once a curtain is drawn across the entrance, each becomes a private cubicle. Women students have a choice of twin seaters, in addition to the triple seater rooms. There are also a few single rooms available in both hostels. These are usually given to students in the final year.

A well equipped International Training Centre, with residential facilities for organizing training programmes, was inaugurated by the Hon’ble Chief Justice Mr. Lahoti on 28th August, 2005. The Training Centre is under the supervision of a care taker who is responsible for providing the facilities at the Centre without any deficiency in service. Several Training Programmes have been successfully conducted at this premises.


From its inception the School has taken efforts to build sports facilities for students. Currently the Law School has a basketball court, a tennis court and indoor facilities for table tennis at the hostels and in the Academic block. A couple of years ago, a new fitness centre with state-of-the-art equipments was also inaugurated.
