With the objective of attracting foreign students to study law in India, the Rajiv Gandhi School of Intellectual Property Law (RGSOIPL), IIT-Kharagpur, is working towards promoting internationalisation of IITs.
Prof Khushal Vibhute, Dean, RGSOIPL, said, “Against old time practice of Indian legal scholars making trips abroad to become law practitioners and professionals, we are promoting India-bound student traffic.” RGSOIPL is the only law school in the IIT system, which has established collaborative and exchange programmes with the internationally reputed George Washington University Law School.”
Spring semester system
“With the government’s mandate of bringing in foreign students and promoting internationalisation of IITs, we had organised a spring semester programme with GW Law School, which paved way for exposure of Indian students,” Vibhute said. Which specialisation in Intellectual Property Law, the RGSOIPL, has also expanded to other areas of legal education such as Corporate Laws, Taxation, Criminal Laws, International Law, Constitutional Law and Competition Law.
“The GW Law community has the privilege of working with one of the world’s top universities in helping establish a top-flight law school,” Karamanian, the Associate Dean of RGSOIPL, said.
Supercomputing facility provided
Also, IIT Kharagpur, under the National Supercomputing Mission (NSM), has been provided a supercomputing facility and has become the first academic institution to get the same. Through this, a large computational support will be provided to the users to carry out both research and teaching activities that involve state-of-the-art High Performance Computing (HPC) and usher in a new age in research and innovation in the country.
