Indian University Expands International Law School Enrollment

Mar 30, 2017 at 12:00am ET By Alyssa Walker

The law school at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur—the only IIT law school—launched a campaign to attract international law students to study in India.   The Rhajiv Gandhi School of Intellectual Property Law (RGSOIPL) wants to promote an internationalization of IITs by encouraging international students to study there. 

Currently, RGSOIPL offers an exchange program with the George Washington University Law School in Washington, DC.

Through this program, the RGSOIPL hopes to promote India-bound student traffic. 

In an article in Indian Express, Associate Dean of RGSOIPL Karamanian said, “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.” 

Dean of RGSOIPL Khushal Vibhute said, “With the government’s mandate of bringing in foreign students and promoting internationalization of IITs, we had organized a spring semester program with GW Law School, which paved way for exposure of Indian students.”
