Section II CRITERION-WISE ANALYSIS
Criterion I CURRICULAR ASPECTS
As the College is affiliated to the University of Mysore , the Board of Studies in law of this University plays an important role in framing the syllabi and the syllabus in each subject changes as per the directions given by the Bar Council of India. The temporal plan of the academic work in the college is a semester pattern. The College offers two types of courses -  Three years full-time course and  Five year integrated course.
To introduce a new program within the regulations of the present University system, the College takes one year including the consent of the Chancellor. Hence the College has limited scope for deciding on contents of the courses.
The Principal, through the Board of Studies in Law play a vital role in updating the syllabi and making them more relevant.
The College gives practical training to the students as part of curriculum in order to expose them to the social reality. The guest lectures of experts in the legal field are arranged. The College conducts Legal Literacy Camps.
The above activities are generally in conformity with main objective of the institution, i.e., to provide professional legal education.

Criterion III RESEARCH, CONSULTANCY AND EXTENSION

However, one teacher has done his project work on ' Potable water management in Hassan city: An empirical study', under the joint auspices of the National Law School University, Banaglore and the University of Mysore. The teachers are to be encouraged to undertake research projects.
The College has been active in extension activities such as social work, environment awareness, legal literacy and legal aid programmes. These activities sensitize the students to the problems and need of the society and enable them to appreciate the complexities involved.

Short term self financing courses to be introduced such as Post Diploma Courses in different branches of Law, eg: Diploma in Taxation, Diploma in Labour Laws and Diploma in corporate Laws and Diploma in IPR.
The UGC scales need to be implemented to ensure quality education.
Looking to the number of students coming from far-flung areas Karnataka the College may have an independent hostel for both girls and boys for which even parents and students have expressed their concern.
Multimedia facilities may be further strengthened to make the learning process more effective and interesting.
Special coaching classes be conducted for the students appearing for judicial and other competitive examinations, including remedial courses.
Adequate number of permanent teachers be appointed.
Effective steps to encourage research activities for staff.
An effective computer centre with adequate number of computers with internet access is to be established for the basic computer training for the students.
Additional space should be provided for girls for making use of the library books during college hours.
A permanent Legal Aid Clinic should be established with the help of State level legal services authority.
A College may generate resources through consultancy service and self financing PG Diplomas in the subjects already mentioned.
Institution website may be developed to provide institutional details regarding admission procedure, fee structure and other facilities available. This will help attracting the students from outside the State.
Effective placement scheme with tie-up of corporate firms may be arranged.
Desirable to have an independent Director of Physical Education.
