Dean of LAW School, IIT Kharagpur does not have a law degree

 Kolkata, 30 August (FASTMAIL) - Gautam Saha, the dean of the Rajiv Gandhi School of Intellectual Property Law at IIT Kharagpur, allegedly does not have a law degree.

 Saha is a Professor in the Department of Engineering, IIT Kharagpur. The Bar Council of India has objected to this. Shrimant Sen, secretary of the Bar Council, has written a letter to Professor Virendra Kumar Tiwari, director of IIT Kharagpur, saying that it is completely illegal. The people holding the post of Dean of all the institutions providing legal education in the country must have a degree in law. A section of academics also says that it is against the rules of UGC.

Tamal Nath, Registrar, IIT Kharagpur, clarified that the present Dean was earlier the head of the Intellectual Property Rights Cell of the same school. He was then given the responsibility of dean. The post of Dean is administrative. They are not teaching law to students. He said that the head of IIT Kharagpur is also the head of this school. They don't even have a law degree. It is learned that Gautam Saha was appointed as the Dean in June last year.



 Departmental Head of Kancharapada College under Kalyani University (Hindi) Dr. Sunita Mandal says that under the rules of UGC, if the dean of a law institute does not have a law degree, it will be considered illegal. But it is common practice for a faculty to have a dean from another department. Guest Professor of Hindi at Ravindra Bharati University, Dr. JK Bharti has also said the same thing. He said that the dean of a faculty can be from another department.

It is noteworthy that Rajiv Gandhi School of Intellectual Property Law is counted among the fourth top law schools in the country. The school was awarded the medal in the report of the National Institutional Ranking Framework under the Central Government.
