The concept of legal education in India dates back to Vedic times, when it was essentially based on the concept of Dharma. Kings used to administer justice themselves or appoint judges to administer justice, who were not necessarily trained in law, but were known for their righteousness and justice and had a reputation for being fair and impartial. According to Brihaspathi Smrithi, there was a hierarchy of courts in ancient India, beginning with the family courts and ending with the king. The lowest was the family referee. The next higher court was that of the judge; the next of the chief justices, who was called Praadivivaka or Adhyaksha, and at the head was the king`s court. In 1995, the Honourable Founding President M.S. Ramaiah has established a “Center of Excellence” in the field of law with the noble mission of providing quality legal education that takes an appropriate approach in a healthy academic atmosphere, which has greatly contributed to shaping the future of students so that they can face professional challenges with confidence and strength.
