The Indian Law Society established the ILS Law College in 1924. The campus was set up in the western Indian city of Pune. Regarded as amongst the best law colleges in India, the institute has nurtured some of the best known legal brains which includes the likes of Y.V. Chandrachud, Sushil Kumar Shinde and M. C. Chagla among others.
The campus offers students a holistic environment that encourages exposure to social, cultural and physical activities that complement the top-ofthe- class legal education imparted by the college.
The ILS Law College offers a 5-year integrated BSL, LLB degree course under the University of Pune, apart from a 3-year LLB, a 2-year LLM and autonomous diploma courses in Housing Laws, Labour Legislation & Labour Welfare and Taxation Laws. Several short-term courses are also conducted on campus. Admission to the under-graduate course is purely based on merit. Students are offered admission after a round of individual interviews.
With 15 core faculty members and over 30 visiting professors, the college offers an ambient academic support system for the students to pursue legal studies. It has extended its academic excellence to the social sphere as well, offering free legal advice and litigation assistance to the economically underprivileged. Started in 1976 with grants, the Legal Aid Programme tries to inculcate a sense of social responsibility in its students.
