Students of LL.M. had to submit thesis on a subject studied by them in LL.B. and LL.M. In view of heavy demand for admission to Law course, the Law Department of the Arts College has been elevated into a full-fledged Law College in the year 1950 and shifted to Saifabad Science College in the city.

Law College Building was constructed in the Campus and Morning session of the Law College was shifted to the new Building. Justice P.Jagan Mohan Reddy, the then Dean, Faculty of Law took active interest in establishing the institution.

Courses were shifted to the University College of Law in the same year. Four branches of LL.M. i.e., Jurisprudence, Constitutional Law and international Law, Personal law and Mercantile Law were offered by the College. Subsequently some of the branches of LL.M. were shifted to Evening College of Law. In 1977 all the LL.M. courses were shifted to the Evening College of Law. Again in 1994, three branches viz.
