It is the first Rajiv Gandhi School of Intellectual Property Law (RGSOIPL) is the first of its kind law school to impart legal education with IP specialization bringing synergy among science, technology, management and law. The School offers a Six-Semester, Three-Year Full-Time residential programme leading to the Degree of Bachelor of Laws (Hons) in Intellectual Property Law approved by the Bar Council of India. Apart from this, several specialised courses in law and Intellectual Property Rights are being offered.

IIT Kharagpur Takes The Initiative To Make Indian Law More Popular

The Dean of RGSOIPL, Khushal Vibhute, said that promoting India-bound student traffic is to popularize Indian Law. This is just the reverse of Indian legal scholars crossing borders in the past to become practitioners and professionals and popularize that country’s law.

“With the government showing interest in bringing foreign students and promoting internationalisation of IITs, a spring semester programme with GW Law School had been organized and this opened the doors for the exposure of Indian students,” he said.

IIT Kharagpur’s Law School has also extended its reach to areas such as Corporate, Taxation, Criminal, International, Constitutional and Competition Law.
