The University is named after the former Chief Justice of India, Justice Mohammad Hidayatullah.

HNLU is firmly committed to reach the zenith of success by consciously planning and carefully pursuing the path of value based quality education. The University is making continuous efforts to transform itself into a world class institution. I, therefore, call upon the members of the HNLU family, i.e. the students, their parents, faculty and staff-members in particular, and the public at large in general, to come forward and contribute their best for overall development of the University.
HNLU has been established by the Government of Chattisgarh to attain among others, the following objectives:
To advance and disseminate learning and knowledge of law and promote research with a view to ensure its proper role in national development.
To develop among the students and research scholars a sense of responsibility to serve society in the field of law by developing skills in regard to advocacy, judicial and other legal services, legislation, law reforms and the like.
To prepare and train lawyers of national and international repute with high moral and ethical values;
To advance the professional education and also to provide adequate orientation and training to judicial officers and others who are involved in the administration of justice.
