Welcome to IFIM Law School, one of the leading private law school in the country!

Legal education in India is dynamically evolving these days. Studying Law has increasingly become
a compelling career for students and many parents are encouraging their children to pursue a
degree in Law. Law students are looking at a wide variety of career options both nationally and
internationally. Legal education institutions now have to take strategic measures to enable their
students to hone their advocacy skills and live up to the expectations of a globalized society. IFIM
Law School with its vision of value-based quality legal education aspires to produce law graduates
competent to meet ever emerging challenges to the satisfaction of all stakeholders. We aim to
produce not only responsible lawyers but also responsible citizens on whom rests the hope of a
glorious future.

The faculty of IFIM Law School comprises a blend of academicians and professionals who leaves
no stone unturned to mould our students to be at par with reputed law schools. It is the stated aim
of our visionary management to enable our students to bag coveted positions in the bar, the
corporate world and all other meaningful avenues with a sense of social obligation.

IFIM aims to create socially responsible thought leaders in different fields of law and contribute to
nation building. At IFIM we focus on the Socratic method of teaching, equip students with research
and writing skills along with mooting and advocacy skills and to incorporate the idea enhanced
learning courses on Personality Enhanced Program (PEP), Research Incubation (RI) and Social
Immersion Program (SIP) are provided to the students. Additionally, IFIM is uniquely located in the
centre of the corporate hub of Electronic City, Bangalore, the Silicon Valley of India. The uniqueness
at IFIM lies in the mentorship that is given to individual students. It is a small community of
like-minded faculty and students that aim to create a niche in the field of corporate and

At IFIM Law School we are nurturing tomorrow’s corporate lawyers. The pedagogy focuses on
bridging the gap between theory and practice by offering practical exposure to students through
law clinics and so on. IFIM Law School also benefits from the expertise of the IFIM Business School
and both institutes work in collaboration. This is where the law school innovates and introduces
several new techniques. IFIM Law School considers it as its paramount obligation to focus on
clinical legal education to produce such brand of lawyers.

Looking at the Management’s zeal to develop a top ranked law school manifested in the measures
taken at the threshold itself, I have no scruples in saying that IFIM Law School will make rapid
strides in the years to come and emerge as one of the premiere institutions in the country. The Law
School as per the recent Career 360 ranking is ranked number seventeenth in the category of best
law schools in India and tenth in the B.B.A. LL.B Course. I am extremely delighted to associate

Students Internship Testimonials

             Ms. Abhikrishna Lal, 1st year B.B.A. LL.B student, IFIM Law School
             HOPE Foundation (NGO), Qatar, UAE
             It was a unique experience for me to intern with HOPE Qatar, a non-profit institution,
             engaged in helping differently abled children to integrate into the society.
             My internship with HOPE Qatar taught me to be selfless and the art of giving back to the
             Society in various possible ways. I have re-shaped myself as a more responsible person
             and understood my responsibility as a ‘Social Engineer’ in this Society.

             Ms. Fathima Rifa, 3rd year B.B.A. LL.B student, IFIM Law School
             Abu Dhabi, UAE, Meera Ali Al Jallaf Legal Consultants, Law Firm
             I thought it would be difficult for an Indian law student to adapt to the UAE law firm as
             the laws differ in their substance and procedure. But I am honored to learn diverse legal
             systems which will help me to shape my career. This international exposure has opened up
             various career options for me and has enhanced my legal skills to a larger extent."

             Mr. Sandesh Samuel, 3rd year B.B.A. LL.B Student, IFIM Law School
             Mr. Prabhuling. K. Navadgi, Additional Solicitor General of India, High Court of Karnataka
             It was an absolute privilege and honor for me to intern under The Additional Solicitor
             General of India Mr. Prabhuling. K. Navadgi at the High Court of Karnataka. Getting
             mentored by the most renowned person amongst the legal fraternity has enhanced my
             professional skills and learnt the art of advocacy. I want to thank my college for giving me
             the opportunity to share the office with such an eminent Law Officer, the 3rd highest
             position in the country.

             Mr. Sarbodeep Sood, 4th year B.B.A. LL.B IFIM Law School
             Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), Bangalore
             Getting the chance to intern in one of the largest MNCs in the IT sector, is nothing less than
             a privilege. Being a pure corporate house, the Company has a plethora of work, which
             results in immense learning for any intern. I had the opportunity to work on several
             commercial laws.
             The most enjoyable part of working there is the end of the week discussions that are held,
             wherein the Senior Counsels, take an hour or more to discuss issues and teach the interns
             about various aspects of the Organization and other areas too.

             Ms. Nidhi Chauhan, 4th Year B.B.A. LL.B Student, IFIM Law School
             Hon’ble Justice Mr. K Natarajan, High Court of Karnataka
             To intern under the sitting Justice of High Court is a dream of every law student and I was
             lucky enough to live by this dream. To get mentored by the learned Justice Mr. K
             Natarajan was educative as well as challenging. Since I was assigned the task of carrying
             out research related to the cases handled by Hon’ble Justice, my research, reasoning and
             drafting skills got nurtured to a larger extent.
