NLSIU releases FAQs on admission of Karnataka students

Due to concerns raised regarding the admission of Karnataka students at NLSIU, the University has issued FAQs on the admission of the domicile students.

As per the FAQs released, the university has said that since the first batch in 1988, NLSIU has admitted Karnataka students based on the University’s competitive entrance exams. NLSIU reserves 25% of seats for Karnataka students on a horizontal basis. Since the year 2021, the University voluntarily adopted the 25% compartmentalised horizontal reservation for Karnataka students under the NLSIU Inclusion and Expansion Plan 2021-25. Prior to this, no Karnataka student reservation policy was in place at NLSIU between 1988 and 2020.

There is no cap on the maximum number of Karnataka students admitted to NLSIU. The University ensures that at least 25% of students admitted to our programmes are Karnataka students. Based on their performance in the competitive entrance exam for NLSIU, a higher number of Karnataka students may be admitted to NLSIU in any given year. 

NLSIU has strictly complied with the reservation policy adopted by the Executive Council and approved in the General Council under the name of the “Inclusion and Expansion Plan 2021-25”, said the statement.

The number of Karnataka students will further increase in the years ahead. From Academic Year 2024-25, 135 Karnataka students will be admitted per year to NLSIU, in keeping with an increase in overall student intake. By Academic Year 2026-27, under the University’s Inclusion and Expansion Plan, we aim to ensure that the minimum number of Karnataka students studying law programmes at the University will increase to around 500 students, added NLSIU statement.
