The National University of Advanced Legal Studies (NUALS) was established by the State of Kerala by Act 27 of 2005 to be a national level institute of excellence in higher learning of law in the State. The Government of Kerala constituted this University by merging the erstwhile National Institute for Advanced Legal Studies (NIALS), which was established and managed by the Bar Council of Kerala and Bar Council of Kerala Trust. NIALS was then the approved centre of the Cochin University of Science & Technology and recognised by that University. By the merging of NIALS to the University, all the students of NIALS became the students of this University and all the assets and liabilities were also transferred.The Bar Council of India has recommended 37 subjects (including 4 practical training courses) for the 5 year LL.B. Course. However, the NUALS offers 50 subjects with nearly one third of them providing wide variety of options to the students. The students shall generally be required to write projects on topics in each subject. They may also be asked to involve in extension activities like legal aid services and clinical projects like women and law, media and the law, environment and the law etc. Placement for internship for a period of at least one month every year shall be envisaged by the University as an important component of the course. The students shall be conferred with B.A. LL.B. (Hons.) Degree at the end of 5 years.The projects shall be evaluated for marks and those that are found to be good enough may be encouraged to be published in the leading law journals. Society, Science and Law, Medical Jurisprudence, Law and Medicine, Law and Forensic Science are some of the specialized subjects offered and taught by the experts in the respective fields, so as to make the graduates of this University professionally competent. The students are also given full exposure to some of the socially relevant subjects like, Cyber law and E governance, Energy Law, Media and the Law, Environment and Law etc. Thus, study in this University is made intellectually challenging and professionally rewarding.
