About us / Vice Chancellor

Ever since its establishment Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law has steadily but surely achieved success after success. The recognitions   and awards won by the students and faculty have clearly mapped it on the national scene. It would be my endeavour to lead the crusade further to ultimate academic excellence. I envisage, to further improve and promote high quality in academics and research so as to meet the global standards; to develop prestigious centre of learning and knowledge; to grow a community of academicians who would contribute substantially to society and play a distinctive role in nation building.

As a National Law University, RGNUL is committed to provide a congenial environment for students to learn both theory and practice of Law. It has opened a window of opportunity for the young law aspirants. The sole aim of the University is to be a premier institution in the field of law by ensuring creative teaching methodology in a pragmatic environment. The teaching curriculum and methodology at the University entails both intensive and extensive room teaching and participative learning. Special emphasis is laid on seminars, projects, moots, workshops and guest lectures while teaching.

We are equally devoted to the culture of equipping young students to meet the contemporary challenges. The faculty and the administration work in tandem to achieve the objectives of imparting legal education and ensuring the students are proficient enough to put their theoretical knowledge to practice. The young and experienced faculty at RGNUL with their active enterprises ensures proactive involvement of students. The infrastructure provided at the University is to facilitate learning for all students. The entire campus is wifi enabled, including the hostels. A Library is heart of any institution, and RGNUL has a very well-stocked library of over 36965 books. From July 2013, the RGNUL has started all its Academic as well as Administrative activities from its new campus. The State-of-art campus built at the out skirts of the Patiala city at Bhadson Road is equipped with all facilities for the students. 

The RGNUL has started its own Law Journal, RGNUL Law Review and online RGNUL Financial and Mercantile Law Review, research journals that aims at providing a forum for sharing advanced research and scholarship. The RLR provides comprehensive coverage to some of the important and contemporary legal issues agitating the minds of jurists at the national and international levels. The University has organized a number of events, be it Moot Court Competitions, Seminars, Conferences and Training Programmes in which academicians, jurists, public servants, scholars and students from all over the country participated and were benefited. These activities introduce our students to the frontiers of knowledge and provide them with opportunities to learn skills and discipline. We at Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law are committed to provide the students with excellent education and practical training. To achieve this aim we continuously strive to update our courses and syllabi, keeping in view the changing needs of different professions, industries and social landscape.
