About NALSAR

The National Academy of Legal Studies and Research (NALSAR)  University of Law was established in 1998 by a Statute of the (erstwhile) State of Andhra Pradesh. Since its inception, the University has been home to vital conversations on law and justice.

With students admitted from all over the country and faculty drawn from home and abroad, NALSAR is counted amongst the top law schools of the country. We are proud of the position but do not see it as defining us. In accord with NALSAR’s liberal outlook, legal education is imparted in an inter-disciplinary manner. Consequently, there is convergence between the disciplines of law, social sciences, humanities, and management studies in both developing and executing the curriculum in the various degree and diploma courses.

With the objective of developing deep learning in niche areas, NALSAR has set up a number of Research Centres. One of such Centres in the N.C. Banerjee Centre for Intellectual Property Rights Studies. The IJIPL is India’s first student run journal that is wholly devoted to the study of intellectual property and is the combined endeavour of NALSAR University of Law, Hyderabad and the N.C. Banerjee Centre for Intellectual Property Rights Studies to address contemporary issues in the field of intellectual property law.
