About Rajiv Gandhi School of Intellectual Property Law

Established on 28th March 2005, Rajiv Gandhi School of Intellectual Property Law (RGSOIPL), Kharagpur was set up with the initiative of Mr. Vinod Gupta, Life Fellow of IIT Kharagpur and CEO of Info USA in collaboration with the George Washington University Law School, Washington DC.

The Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India provided a suitable grant to RGSOIPL after accepting its proposal. It is unique in the sense that it is the first of its kind to be based at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur; the only Law School in the IIT structure.

In May 2009, the first batch of the Law School graduated. Also, the 2 batches of the PGDIPL programme, which was discontinued since the year 2008, also graduated. The first Ph.D. in IP Law was awarded after that.

In 2006, the Law School started operating from the Vinod Gupta School of Management, IIT Kharagpur. The school started operating from its own building from 2008. The architecture of the building reflects the Grecian style, replicating Supreme Court of India.
