TNNLS Financial Assistance Scheme
Tamil Nadu Law School (TNNLS) was established by the Government of Tamil Nadu to provide high quality legal education in the Country. TNNLS is aware that quality legal education needs to be made accessible to students from all sections of the society. The progressive reservation and scholarship policies of the Government of Tamil Nadu has ensured that students from marginalized sections of the society have got admission to TNNLS. But, the cost of education which includes the tuition fee and other user charges is still a barrier for many meritorious students from economically weaker families. With a view to making access to legal education more inclusive, TNNLS has evolved this "TNNLS Financial Assistance Scheme"
Scope of the Policy
(1) This Scheme covers the financial assistance granted by TNNLS alone. Such assistance shall be called "TNNLS Financial Assistance Scheme".

(2) "TNNLS Financial Assistance Scheme" shall include full or partial waiver of any kind of fees and charges.
(3) This scheme shall cover all courses offered by TNNLS and all years of study in the respective courses.
