Ranked #7 in the composite EWIHER 2021-22, National Law School of India University (NLSIU), Bengaluru is India’s #1 public law and humanities university in 2022-23 with top scores in a record nine of ten parameters
The carving out of a separate law and humanities league table has given a huge boost to the National Law School of India University (NLSIU), Bengaluru, widely acknowledged as India’s premier institute of legal education. Promoted in 1986 as India’s first law university under the leadership of legendary legal educator N.R. Madhava Menon (1935-2019), NLSIU — ranked #7 in the composite EWIHER 2021-22 — is India’s #1 government law and humanities varsity in 2022-23 with top scores on a record nine of the ten parameters of higher education excellence including competence of faculty, research and innovation, curriculum and pedagogy and placements.
Dr. Sudhir Krishnaswamy, vice chancellor of NLSIU, welcomes the university’s #1 ranking in the new law and humanities league table. “We are honoured by this recognition. NLSIU is known for having revitalised legal education in India. However, we are more than a legal education institution. Our five-year degree programme includes learning of the social sciences and humanities. Our pedagogy is focused on the intersection of law with the social sciences and humanities such as sociology, cultural anthropology, history, politics and economics. With the National Education Policy 2020 recommending the conversion of all higher education institutions into multidisciplinary universities, we intend to boost research and knowledge creation, upgrade and expand our syllabus to develop new law and multidisciplinary programmes
-says Krishnaswamy, an alum of NLSIU and Oxford University, who was appointed vice-chancellor in 2019.
