Prof. Preeti S. Desai
Dear Aspiring Lawyers-To-Be, Greetings from the Bangalore Institute of Legal Studies (BILS)!
It is a matter of great delight that you have embarked on the tryst with the most learned of the professions, the legal profession. My heartiest congratulations!
The paramountcy of the legal profession hardly needs to be underscored. From being freedom fighters to law-makers and social reformers, the yeomen service rendered by the legal fraternity to our society is immeasurable. There are no two opinions that the legal profession–the Bar, the Bench and the academia– is the harbinger of peace and social justice.
We, at BILS, are proud to be an integral part of this noble mission. Established in 1993, under the aegis of BHS HES, BILS is leaving no stone unturned to impart excellent legal education and ushering in an all-encompassing profession. Indeed, BILS is fortunate enough to be guided by Shri N.B.Bhat, former IPS Officer, as its Dean, under whose able leadership it is taking colossal strides. It is a privilege for me to be heading this institution as its Principal.
At this juncture, when BILS is on the threshold of celebrating its Silver Jubilee year, you have a catena of reasons to be associated with it. BILS prides itself on being a teaching-research institution. With committed and well- qualified faculty members, BILS achieves new laurels every year with several of its students being university rank holders. Both the faculty and the students relentlessly strive to scale new heights.
Apart from the academic initiatives, BILS encourages its students in organizing and attending Moot Courts, Sports, Cultural and Literary activities, etc. Various national-level events conducted by BILS are already a household name.
With its strategic location (in the heart of the city and located within a radius of 5Kms. of the High Court, Vidhana Soudha, etc.), State- of –the- art infrastructure, a long and reputed legacy, committed liaisioning with the Bar and the Bench, and an effective networking, BILS has emerged as the most sought- after institution.
Into this ocean of knowledge, I invite you, with great pleasure, for an odyssey in quest of excellence!
Our mission at BILS is to create morally correct, ethically upright, professionally perfect, and socially responsive lawyers with a humane outlook
