NLSIU was the first National Law University established in India in 1986. The premier law school was set up with a mission to pioneer legal education reforms, and to anchor the transformation of the Indian legal system through research and policy interventions.


Consequently, the NLSIU was one of the first institutions in the country to introduce the five-year integrated law degree at the undergraduate level with the commencement of the first batch in 1988. And for over 30 years now, the University has irrefutably remained a leader in the field of legal education in the country.


NLSIU’ s sprawling 23-acre campus in Nagarabhavi, Bengaluru, is home to a vibrant student community that includes student associations and events. Students get to engage in moot courts and debates at a competitive level, both domestically and internationally. Equipped with a state-of-the-art library, multiple academic centres, student housing and essential facilities, the University is committed to serve as a breeding ground for future leaders.

The National Law School-Trilegal International Arbitration Moot is the National Law School of India University’s flagship event on international arbitration and commercial law. As India’s largest arbitration moot, the competition is abundantly marked by diverse areas of arbitral law and even more variegated perspectives on the same. It is in giving life to seemingly academic concepts of arbitration that NLSTIAM has proven its mettle year after year. Our international participation only serves to exemplify differences in jurisprudential values vis-a-vis arbitral law. In addition to the assorted participants, we have engaged arbitrators at the top of their fields from national and international platforms. These include Mr. Steven Finzio, Retd. Justice BN Srikrishna, and many others. The presence of these stalwarts imparts a flavour of top quality to the competition but also forces participating teams to probe much deeper into the problem. Indeed, multiple editions of NLSTIAM have laid witness to expert examination and scrutiny of budding arbitrators right from the preliminary rounds till the finals.

NLSTIAM has a strong tradition of assembling top-notch drafting panels for the Moot proposition, meticulously examining each problem component to foster nuanced legal representations. As we gear up for our seventeenth edition, post-pandemic and offline, we're committed to surpassing past excellence. Join us as we prepare to unveil an engaging competition, leaving no stone unturned. We're thrilled to welcome you and eager for this exciting opportunity!
