Electronic properties of κ-(BEDT-TTF)2Cu(NCS)2 are surveyed through measurements of the upper critical fields (Hc2), its anisotropy and their pressure dependence. The value of Hc2 parallel to the plane (Hc2//) at 1.8 K is ∼ 20 T, which is almost the same as the Pauli limit value. The anisotropy of Hc2///Hc2⊥ is 19:1 at ambient pressure which reproduced Oshima's result. However, the anisostropy of Hc2///Hc2⊥ increased with increasing pressure. These properties are discussed comparing the Fermi surface study and the pressure dependence on Tc.
