Dean’s Message

The RV University is pleased to start the School of Law which will commence UG and PG degree programmes from August 2023.

Looking back at my own journey, I started as a founding faculty member in the Jindal Global Law School (JGLS), O.P. Jindal Global University (JGU). It started with nearly 100 students and 10 faculty members in 2009. I have directed the Centre for Human Rights Studies in JGU for 11 years until July 2020, besides serving as the Registrar of JGU for nine years. Today, JGLS is among the top 70 Law Schools in the world, a truly extraordinary achievement.

The School of Law at RV University wishes to strive for academic and research excellence. We have already forged many collaborations with national and international partners. In the coming years, we will create many more interesting learning opportunities for our students. We have highly qualified and committed faculty members on board, who are the backbone of our institution.

Bengaluru is regarded as the Silicon Valley of India and the start-up capital of India, besides being a hub of innovation. Many top world class companies have either established their R&D labs or have a big presence here. The city is known for its strengths in IT, E-commerce, aerospace, defence, automobiles and pharmaceuticals. It is a vibrant city with many interesting opportunities for growth. The excellent business environment augurs well for the prospective students of law.

I appeal to all students to make full use of various opportunities provided by our School of Law, RV University. Come explore, engage, excel and go, change the world.

Welcome to the School of Law at RVU.
