Law, according to us, is not an activity of the State, but part of our life. There is no activity of human life with which law is not concerned. Law is the foundation of the universe and everything is centered in law. This belief is expressed in our motto “DHARMA SARV PRATISHTHAM” (Everything is centered in law).Guided by this philosophy, ILS has nurtured its own educational culture.
Situated at the foot of the Law College Hill, ILS flourishes with a lush green campus of 154 acres with a lovely hill, birds, and trees creating a treasured pollution free ambiance.
