The history of this intuition can be traced back to 1869 when the diploma course in law and course Pleader ship licence was introduced in the Ravenshaw Collegiateschool, Cuttack. Subsequently the course continued in the Ravenshaw College.In the year 1881, Bachelor of Law Course was introduced in the same College under the Calcutta University and continued up to 1908.The law classes were directly under the administrative control of the Principal, Ravenshaw College and the same suffered a set back due to nonavailability of qualified teachers and consequently the result in examination was not satisfactory. It was only when late Utkal Gourab Madhusudan Das, offered his honorary service as a parttime Lecturer that the scenario of legal education remarkably changed. However, nonavailability of adequate students resulted in the suspension of the course for about 12 years i.e. from 198 to 1920, The credit for the reopening of the course totally goes to late Ashutosh Mukherjee, the then ViceChancellor of Calcutta University who was a student of Utkal Gourab Madhusudan Das.After the formation of Orissa as a separate Province in 1936,th Govt. of Orissa established Utkal University which started functioning from 27th November, 1943.
