Surprised with the negative reviews

I am shocked to see negative reviews about my institute, especially when a third party has rated our institute as the No. 2 in the country. The complaints are with regard to teaching method, exams, faculty, Attendance, Library facility. Let me attempt to address each of those. First, I do not see how an Indian graduate can actually comment on teaching methods. Has he/she actually experienced other teaching methods like the Socratic method etc.? Our professors use the case law method. Our college has topped the law school rankings on research in 2017. Isn't this an evidence of the faculty's substantial knowledge base? The lectures here are for 2 hours each, giving ample time for class discussions. One professor is willing to repeat (and has ) all that he taught in the previous 2 hour lecture just for the benefit of the students. In one of my subjects, there is an MSc student taking an elective law course. He categorically told us that he considers the quality of the lectures in the law school way higher than his department . We have a good library and we also have access to journals like manupatra, Hein Online and JSTOR and many more. Our faculty suggest case laws, articles etc. It is of vital importance that the student makes use of these journals and actually reads the case laws, research articles etc. The course is very rigorous. When the student supplements the lectures with the readings, where is the need to mug up? 20% marks in each subject goes toward internal evaluation. This offer us a opportunity to use the creative side of our brain and come up with research articles, papers. We have credit moot court -whee we have opportunities to learn drafting skills, researching skills. Creative interpretations/arguments are well encouraged and recognized. Attendance requirement is not 100%. Attendance criteria is as per BCI rules are followed as in other law schools. Mostly, the ones who complain are the ones who think that a seat in the IIT law school will guarantee them a placement. They might not be serious about a career in law itself. As a result, they cannot see the tremendous impact this law school can have on their career and their lives. This sad story is analogous to the millions of jobless/ skill-less graduate engineers who joined engineering with the only intention to come out with a placement. It is even sad when you consider that the students here are graduates, most with work experience. Our College has alumni in top law firms, corporate companies. The few who have gone for litigation have established themselves as leading advocates in a short span of time. If one is serious about developing his skill set, RGSOIPL is one of the best institutes to learn law. I will conclude with a quote from the 3 idiots movie success ke peeche mat bhago, kabil bano, success tao jhak marke ayegi!!!!!

Why you should think twice before joining RGSOIPL

Let me try to be short and precise.Teaching method is ancient, lecturers don't have teaching manuals for students, which basically translates to classes being a take-down lecture of all the case names. Many of the lecturers detest using technology for effective teaching except one or two, sad part is they never share their slides as well except one(there are total of 11 lecturers). Evaluation and the method of evaluation is more of a memory test rather than being a test of understanding of law. You may be required not only to remember bare provisions.. you might be required to mug up rules, regulations, direct tax and indirect tax rates, classification etc. Well, why can't law exams be open book then, that too in IIT? Most of the academic activity is routine, not providing enough time to develop or challenge your thinking. So, if you just want a degree, well good enough, but not so when you want to do anything more than that, like writing blogs, participating in moot court competitions. Every regulation here is an attempt to block it rather than to nurture it. Attendance: Well you need to know this, lecturers expect you to be in every class else you may get open threats of de-registration even if you have a valid reason for your absence like your participation in competition or anything you want to pursue outside school. Quality of lectures are below average, not because lecturers are bad, but because they themselves don't take their primary job which is teaching as a seriously and are too busy finding and doing projects to upgrade their CV. It seems lecture is a secondary job without any effort put into to upgrade their knowledge. In some of the subject, lecturers depend on students to do a presentation without ever covering that portion themselves. Many a regulations could be arbitrary wherein you may be required to study 9 subjects in one semester as happened in 2016(5th Semester). Probably that is the reason why this school never wins in any moot court competition these days. Vindictive Nature: The story goes that since students asked for "Principle of taxation", which is a core subject, dean sir decided to put all 20 subjects in "compulsory group" out of which only 18 are required to be taught. In just concluded end semester exams, for the same paper(Principle of Taxation), the faculty punished the students by asking questions which were more suited for Chartered Accountants, like calculation of taxable income wherein he conveniently forgot that subject is about principles of tax and not about mugging up the finance act 2016, so much for intelligence they say. Last but not the least, library facilities are poor, being an IP school, there is no patent database. This Information is not to malign anyone, but to state the facts as they exist, feel free to use it before you join this college.

The college is in turmoil. Only professors related to IP, Constitutional Law, and Taxation are the best. In short, this college is a CIRCUS. The Dean just showed doors to the TnP in charge who is a Godly and humble man. Do not depend on the IIT Tag for placements. Placement is not a guarantee. I repeat placement is not assured. Don't come here, especially if u opt for an educational loan. The Dean is not at all friendly, but autocratic and behaves like a monarch. Sure to make your life hell ! If you feel that this review is improper, feel free to corroborate this review with any alumni of RGSOIPL, who have recently passed out of the school. You may find their contacts and presence in social media. No doubt, the school has produced one of the finest students, but the current status of the school wears a very bleak picture. The condition is indeed pitiable for the past 4 years. God Bless !!!

The Dream of Many, A chance to Some

Starting from the school- The school maintains a low strength that helps to maintain the exclusivity of each student equally in the classroom. Our university serves Asia's largest library with access to all the sophisticated e-resources globally available to any academic institution with an internet as one of the main attraction. The school has several independent societies academic or cultural exclusively meant to showcase individual talent, which need not be mere academics. We started the journey of the college from our hostel. Its refreshing to see a large number of bicycles in the stand to maintain humility in the students and make it environment-friendly. There is barely any disparity in the college with the professor's point of view based on CGPA. The professors are paired intelligent guiding us a lot throughout. Each one of us is treated as an IIT'ian which is enough to say !

The college has a unique course designed for science graduates and has all the wonderful options to include a wonderful college life which includes a Stay at IIT- Kharagpur and a wonderful campus. This college is a part of IIT Kharagpur and which is a great boon to the course. Hostel life and campus life is just amazing. No curfews , 2100 acres of campus and excellent food! It's definitely not a bad choice after engineering.
