One of the characters in the above title is a leading technical institution in India famous fro producing such prolific game-changers as Arvind Kejriwal and Ashok Khemka while the former is a branch of law that remains in news thanks to the the Indian healthcare industry in India that routinely churns out generics and helps the cause of cheap and affordable medical aid that is unmatched anywhere else in the world. So what’s the connection?

The connection is the Rajiv Gandhi School of Intellectual Property Law (RGSOIPL) a first of its kind School under the IIT umbrella that provides 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.Curriculum of the Programme has been prepared based on the requirements of the Bar Council of India. In addition, several specialised courses in law and Intellectual Property Rights are also offered.

This Law School, which was established in the year 2006, has an academic collaboration with another venerated Law School, The George Washington University Law School, commonly referred to as GW Law. This is the oldest Law School in Washington DC and one of the most reputable world wide. The institute is also in the look-out for other such tie-ups, promising an enriching experience for future graduates from its hallowed corridors. This institute owes its existence to IIT Kharagpur’s famous Life Fellow-Vinod Gupta- who was also instrumental in setting up the first management school under the IIT aegis(Vinod Gupta School of Management). The Law School has had four batches passed out so far and placed in diverse organisations such as General Electric, Honeywell to Hero MotoCorp, Tata Consultancy Services etc. The law firms like Amarchand & Mangaldas, Anand and Anand have also not shied away from picking up the brightest of the lot. With the perfect blend of a distinguished faculty, a peer network that has the best brains of the country and an alumni network sprinkled generously among the best firms and organisations of India and globally, the Rajiv Gandhi School of Intellectual Property Law (RGSOIPL) is set to go places.
