Concept and History
The concept of Dr Ambedkar Law College is to act as a "best provider and testing ground for bold experiments in legal education" came up before the Bar Council of India in the context of Council's statutory responsibility for maintaining standards in professional legal education under the Advocates Act, 1961. Dr Ambedkar Law College incorporates complete flexibility for innovation and experimentation in the pursuit of excellence in legal education. The management of the institution rests with the organised legal profession in India. Apart from legal education, Dr Ambedkar Law College is perhaps the best model of academy-bar-bench relation in the field of law. The faculty the students and the alumni interact with the judges from time to time.
The co-operation of the Government of Andhra Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh States Council for Higher Education, (APSCHE), Hyderabad, Bar Council of India (BCI), New Delhi, Sri Venkateswara University, Tirupati, and the initiatives of senior members of the India's legal fraternity gave Dr Ambedkar Law College distinct possibilities of realization over a decade. The idea gained more supporters in course of time within the Council and outside who worked different levels to establish the institution in the promotion of better legal education and higher standards of legal education and legal training.
