The college has been ranked the seventh best Law College for three years in a row by India Today for the years 2003, 2004 and 2005 respectively.

Every institution has a past, present and future. Unimaginable and insurmountable efforts have to be put in to start an institution. It is only with the divine blessings of the omnipresent Almighty that we have risen to where we are today despite a very humble beginning.

Bangalore Institute of Legal Studies was inaugurated on 2nd August, 1993 by Sri B V Acharya, the then Advocate General, Government of Karnataka. Dr. V.B. Coutinho, the then Dean and Principal of University Law College, Bangalore presided over the function. The college was started in a very humble manner comprising of a modest library, with a few students. Little did the college realize that the college would scale such heights.

Sri G.V. Subba Rao assumed office as the First Principal of the college. Subsequently, Prof. Anand Rao of the Department of English served as the acting Principal for a short term. On 10th July, 1996, Prof. S.S. Alur was appointed as Principal. His arrival as Principle galvanized the growth and development of the college. His commendable contribution to the college in terms of his insight, treasure trove of knowledge, guidance and uncanny expertise has brought this institution to where it is today. Prof. Alur was the backbone and pillar strength to this esteemed institution. Bangalore Institute of Legal Studies has been obtained approval by the Government of Karnataka, affiliation to Bangalore University and is also recognized by the Bar Council of India, New Delhi.

In quick succession, Prof S.S. Alur was designated as the Director and on 23rd February, 2000 Smt. C.S. Kanthi assumed office as the Principal of the college. Owing to personal reasons, she passed on the baton to Prof. S.B. Jatti who was appointed as the Principal on the 26th of September, 2001. Under his dynamic leadership, the untiring and ceaseless efforts of the dedicated faculty, the committed students and above all the ever-willing and supportive Management, the college continues to tread the path of excellence.
