In 1916, a dedicated group of individuals belonging to the Veerashaiva community, popularly known as Lingayats, embarked on a dream. Their vision - to create a strong educational base in the neglected areas of Karnataka and Maharashtra. Over 98 years later, the K.L.E. Society has blazed a trail. And set an unparalleled example in the South. Today, the K.L.E Society runs over 240 institutions in the areas of Healthcare delivery and education with manpower in excess of 10,500 employees.


More than 87,310 students undergoing every possible course - from kindergarten to post-doctoral programs in the faculties of Arts, Commerce and also professional courses in Medicine, Engineering, Nursing, Pharmacy, Physiotherapy, Management, and Law, are all part of this gigantic social phenomenon. Inspired by democratic values, the Society is ably managed by a Board constituting the President, Chairman and 15 other elected members. Each a responsible and knowledgeable persona with an immaculate track record. The success of the Society can be attributed to their sterling contribution over the years. The Gurusiddappa Kotambri Law College, Hubli stands testimony to the high professional standards aimed for and achieved by the K.L.E. Society.
