The Rajiv Gandhi School of Intellectual Property Law (RGSOIPL) in IIT Kharagpur is a unique law school that was set up in 2006 with a vision of building scientists and engineers into Intellectual Property Lawyers. The School has been set up with the help of generous support of a distinguished alumnus, Mr Vinod Gupta (from the 1967 B.Tech batch). There has been an increasing relevance of law in relation to technological developments and a requirement of professionals and lawyers with understanding of the interdisciplinary areas of technology and law. The School offers a three year LL.B program with specialisation in Intellectual Property Law recognised by the Bar Council of India, the LL.M program in various disciplines of law and a doctoral program.
