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.

The college has a very nice infrastructure and the college gives a very good industry exposure to those who have a keen interest. The teachers are highly qualified and the best part is high-speed internet and late night food stalls. The students have a good internship exposure and there are chances to grab the opportunity for a ppo from companies like TVS, Samsung etc. IIT is an environment-friendly campus disallowing bikes and cars except for professors. The students have cycles for travel purpose. All the vans are registered with the police which keeps the women safe. The professors at our college are highly reputed and authored different books and part of different MHRD projects.

My department infrastructure is very nice. It gives you the feeling of studying abroad in a big university. Students have been admitted from all over India due to which vast diversity is experienced. Faculties are highly experienced. Hostel life is awesome as we get to spends days and nights together with classmates and friends. Many memories are collected in this process.

A paradise of learning

Rajiv Gandhi School of Intellectual Property Law (RG) is the one and only of its kind in India. Under the aegis of IIT-Kharagpur, the law school has uniquely established it’s mental in the field of law in general and IP in specific. Offering law education to the students with science background enables the students of RG to nurture their skills efficiently. RG enjoys the rich cultural, ethnic, social, intellectual and spiritual diversity of students who are from different technical backgrounds. RG provides excellent academic, social, and practical environment, where the students can not only learn from the best legal minds but also grow as a practical lawyer. RG has adequate classrooms, lecture halls, auditoriums, moot-courts apart from the fully equipped library that provides the students everything they may require for studies. The campus is lush green, with the state of arts facilities, a central library which is one of the best and Asia's biggest library. The faculty is RG are very talented, experienced, practical and above all supportive. The staff, faculty, and the students from a big family that always celebrates all the events and festivals with fervent delight. The hostels are spacious and cozy. The campus has fully equipped gym, swimming pool, sports complexes, indoor complexes and several courts and grounds apart from the individual sporting facilities in each hostel. The annual Tech-Fest and Kshitiz are the events that can only be experienced. RG has excellent placement records. Students are placed with the best of law firms, companies and with eminent advocates. Still, in its infancy, RG has already impressed its marks in the field of law, more particularly in the field of Intellectual Property. I have enjoyed my three years in RG, and I carry lots of good memories of my days in IIT-Kgp.

The law itself is an interesting subject to read and I got a chance to do so . As , its our second innings as the student , I am really glad to say that the crowd of student here is of all the branches . Since our University is basically a Technical University so it got a diversification and you really get the people of other backgrounds. Since the law is the subject but in real life, we got the cases from other fields like Pharma , MNCs etc. and it is good to have a friend in this sector as you get a good grip on the subject as you have a chance to make a friend with a different background. the classes are from 9- 5 but after that you got time for the gym , swimming and there many societies where all engineering student , Medical Student and other background person came . In one word , the institute is self-nourished , here you got the DC++ (a local file sharing hub) , largest Asian Library , All sports facilities , cultural societies , hall days (Celebrate the foundation day of the hostel) , Excellent Alumni Network , Good Placements , a life which you wish to live and not the last a TAG name too. As there is some negative aspect too , you have to share a single into two , mess food , No Mall , No nearby metro city.

Overall comprehensive knowledge, good faculty and a brilliant educational environment in one of the country's top most premier college make RGSOIPL one of the good colleges for LLB in Intellectual Property Rights. The hostel facilities definitely needs improvement but overall experience is excellent.

It has been a year I am here and I have been guided by the best faculties. I have seen the growth in myself. This is one of the best platforms where you can know your talent and no matter what background you have joined you end up being on par with the best students. The college ambiance is just awesome. there are no restrictions in the hostels. It is expected to that student entering the LLM programs will go for further studies or join the academics as their profession so placements shouldn't be a concern.

RGSOIPL the first law school within the IIT system has come up with a unique blend of Technology and Law. Intellectual Property let's one be up to date with the latest technology trends. Different product, service based companies, consulting firms and biggest law firms in India recruit from the institution. Students get personal attention as the institution has an optimum student to teacher ratio. The campus life is one of the best at IIT, Kharagpur which includes the biggest technical and cultural festival. Apart from that, there are different social and cultural clubs where students take active participation. After all work and no play make jack a dull boy.

IIT LAW SCHOOL

Posted on 25 May' 15 by pankaj tygai
"The infrastructure and facilities of college are very good as all classes are well furnished and having air conditioners. The top most thing is the INTERNET facilities within the campus. In IIT Kharagpur, one can enjoy internet for full time without any restrictions. In library the access of law journals, legal books and legal database like west law, manupatra etc. are easily accessible. Also you can download various case judgments, law journals, important books etc. at free of cost from anywhere within the campus. Being a law school student we can have the access of 2 libraries. Library used to open for 24 hrs during exams. As the school is a part of IIT, so the facilities like canteen and Sports are excellent. One can easily get food at 2'o clock in the morning and if you want to play any game at midnight you can play. IIT Kharagpur is having restaurants, cafes, food market, grounds of cricket, football, hockey, volleyball etc. within the campus. Now about placement, the average package from the beginning of the school is around 6.5-8 lacs per annum. Here, Recruiters come from all field like engineering, pharmacy, law firms etc. Even though few students use to go for their independent practice in courts which is not lucrative during initial years. But as one will get more practical experience then their will be rise in his revenues exponentially. As per my best knowledge the highest package for this year(2014-15) is 11.5+ lacs/ annum and the best part is every student who sits for placement got decent job as per his individual potential before leaving the campus. Another thing is that this BAR of salary is going to raise because demand of IP lawyers is raising and the curriculum(combination of basic law with IP law as one will get a degree of LL.B.-I.P.-HONS.) adopted by RGSOIPL for developing science graduates to IP lawyers is phenomenal. The presence of RG campus in IIT gives an extra edge to law students of RG over other students of law school. As there are so many societies and opportunities for everyone to develop their personality. This always attract the recruiters to hire their employees from the only law school of IIT or the only IP law school of India. From session 2015-16 RG is also going to start it's LLM program. "
