The Karnataka State Law University (KSLU) was established in January, 2009, by the Government of Karnataka under the Karnataka State Law University Act, 2009, with its headquarters at Navanagar, Hubli. It is a ‘People’s University’ with an aspiration to provide quality legal education totally socially relevant and accessible to everyone. The KSLU, located in the State of Karnataka, is the single largest federal university in the country having 92 colleges under its umbrella.
KSLU is plausibly the first institution, imparting higher education, to have an Assembly every morning, lead by the Hon’ble Vice-Chancellor on the main campus and by the respective Principals in the affiliated colleges wherein the National Anthem is sung. The staff and students of KSLU, including the affiliated law colleges, don Khadi attire every Monday, creating a sense of belonging, integration and nationality. On the main campus, the staff and students wear Khadi dresses in a combination of blue and white, the sky blue colour signifying tolerance and white, purity. The main intent underlying this initiative of singing the National Anthem everyday and wearing Khadi every Monday is to inculcate patriotism among law students.
The KSLU campus is coming up on a sprawling 55 acres of beautiful landscape at Navanagar in Hubli. The Master plan and the architectural design has been drawn up. Already the Training School building with well-equipped class rooms and auditorium, Pariksha Bhavan- the Examination Section of the University, Guest House and a Boys Hostel have come up. Second floor is being added to all these buildings. The construction of the Law School building is initiated. This is going to be the iconic building of the University. For the time being the Administrative Office of the University is functioning from the building within the campus which was earlier known as PWD Circuit House.
KSLU is actively participating in the national level efforts to transform legal education of the country to meet national and global challenges. Its vision of transforming Karnataka into a legally conscious society by providing quality legal education which is professionally competent and socially relevant can be rapidly achieved by adopting the contemporary information communication technology (ICT).
At present KSLU offers the 3 years LL.B. course, 5 years B.A., LL.B., B.B.A., LL.B. and B.A., LL.B., (Hon’s) B.B.A., LL.B. (Hons.) integrated programmes and LL.M. programme apart from certificate and P.G.Diploma courses. In addition, the Ph. D. and LL. D. programs are also offered on the main campus.
