National Law School of India University, situated in Bangalore, is India’s premier law institution. Established In 1988, it has been a pioneer in the field of legal education with emphasis on research oriented interdisciplinary studies. The University and its students have always taken a keen interest in organizing co-curricular activities such as moot court competitions, debates, quizzes, seminars, symposiums, etc. 

Entrepreneurship, in itself, entails risk taking which resonates with NLSIU’s anthem ‘Where the Mind is Without Fear’. This risk taking can be for purposes ranging from advancing the capitalistic profit making ideas to socialist welfare providing ideas. We, at NLSIU, believe that if risk taking is something that you like, you should collaborate with others, who are just like you, to sell the ideas to the world, and make it a better world. With this encouragement and to nurture this spirit on campus, the Entrepreneurship Cell (E-Cell) was established.

We at E-Cell believe that there is a lack of exposure to social side of entrepreneurship or entrepreneurship in general in Law Schools. Even if there are students who have a certain idea that they want to pursue, the culture and hectic schedule in law schools usually curbs down that desire to start something new. And the most basic question that arises is ‘Where to Start?’ There is a common saying that we are ‘The Leaders for Tomorrow’, we at E-cell believe in the idea of ‘The Leaders for Today.’ The aim of E-cell would be to foster the needs of young minds and their ideas, while striving for change. We, as aspiring entrepreneurs, who come from law background want to promote the culture of risk taking and the values it entails, hoping to make a difference. The mission is to create an environment conducive of learning about entrepreneurship, especially for people who come from purely legal background.
