Legal literacy is matter of great concern in todays society. The failure of execution of many laws has been attributed to the lack of awareness .Especially the secondary school going students who are at the preparatory stage for their future life should be essentially aware of minimum legal matters. This may help them to lead a better student life and also help them to become responsible citizens of the country. To identify the level of legal literacy among the secondary school students the authors have conducted the present study on secondary school students of Chikmagalur taluka in Karnataka State.
