The University Grants Commission has recognised NALSAR under sections 2 (f) and 12 (b) of the UGC Act, 1956.
NALSAR was quick to establish a reputation for excellence in legal education within a short period. Teachers and Graduates soon made an impact that was felt not only nationally but also internationally. Presently NALSAR has the best of infrastructure, committed faculty, highly talented students, state of the art facilities and partnerships with world-renowned institutions.
The University Campus – Justice City – is located in a 50 acre site abutting the Shameerpet Lake about 28 kms away from the city. The Campus lies on an expansive, serene and open site on which the several buildings have come up. The NALSAR Architecture is a creative effort yet practical statement of Campus design. The greenery on the Campus developed and maintained during the last few years not only helps the Campus community unwind, but it also attracts birds to colonise. Ecological balance is ensured on the Campus by a large artificial pond which collects rain water. The campus design interweaves the tropes of legal authority and aesthetics through a horizontal and vertical interplay of stern gray, suave white and homely burnt sienna.
