Ms. No.1407 Edn., dated 02.08.1979. Prod.T. Audiseshan of Madras Law College was deputed as special officer for establishing the law college at Coimbatore.

Presently the college is housed in its own campus at Marudamalai, adjacent to the Bharathiar University. The new buildings of the Govt. law college were built at a cost exceeding rupees one crore.

The present campus has a total area of 20.12 acres. Built in lush green mountainous, airy, clean and calm atmosphere at the foot hills of the western ghats, the campus is ideally suitable for one who wants to pursue legal education. Adjacent to the College, two hostels for men & women students have also been constructed.
