Intellectual Property and Technology Law Education has never been emphasized in the curriculum of legal education so far in our country. In the post TRIPS situation, education and research would now be shifted to Intellectual Property creation in the hubs of science and technology research. Therefore, it was decided by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, and the Board of Governors, IIT Kharagpur to accept the proposal of one of its alumni, Mr. Vinod Gupta, a leading business magnate in USA, to establish a Law School within the domain of IIT education research and discipline. In the IIT system, IIT Kharagpur was the first to take the leadership in technology education in the early fifties. Thereafter, IIT Kharagpur was the first technology institution to start the business management school in India in the early nineties. Naturally, in the fitness of things, IIT Kharagpur has now taken on itself the role of a leader, now in technology law education. For this purpose a full fledged law school, incubated in the Vinod Gupta School of Management, started functioning from the academic year 2006. The School presently has one programme: Six-Semester, Three-Year Full-Time residential LL.B. Programme leading to the Degree of Bachelor of Law with specialization in Intellectual Property Rights, at par with the LL.B. Degree requirements of the Bar Council of India.
