KLS Raja Lakhamgouda Law College, Belagavi, one of the oldest law colleges in India and a premier institution of legal education in South India, was established in 1939 by Karnatak Law Society, Belagavi, as a part of its solemn resolve to impart quality legal education. The College is named after Raja Lakhamgouda Sirdesai, its most benevolent mentor-donor and head of the erstwhile Princely State of Vantamuri.

Since its inception, Raja Lakhamgouda Law College is doing yeoman service to the cause of legal education. It has, indeed, played a crusader’s role. Its contribution to the Bar and the Bench is, in fact, second to none.

Raja Lakhamgouda Law College is known by its proud alumni. Two former Chief Justices of India, Hon’ble Justice (Late) Shri E. S. Venkataramiah and Hon’ble Justice Dr. S. Rajendra Babu (former Chairperson, NHRC, New Delhi) have, as proud alumni, taken the glory of their alma mater to great heights. Besides, it is also home to many sitting and former judges of various High Courts. Prominent among them are, Hon’ble Justice (Late) Shri V. S. Malimath, former Chief Justice of Karnataka and Kerala High Court and former member of NHRC; Hon’ble Justice Shri S. R. Bannurmath, former Chief Justice of Kerala High Court. Padma Vibhushan Shri K.
