It was established under the WBNUJS Act, 1999 (West Bengal Act IX of 1999). It is a university within the meaning of subsection (f) of Section 2 and Section 12-B of the UGC Act, 1956, and has permanent affiliation from the Bar Council of India.

About the Centre

The Centre for Research and Studies in Land, Mining, and Real Estate Laws (‘CRSLMREL’) was set up at WBNUJS during the academic year 2019-20. The Centre functions under the leadership and supervision of Dr. M.P. Chengappa [Assistant Professor (Law), NUJS].

Issues related to land acquisition, real estate, and mining laws are fundamental to questions pertaining to environmental law, the efficacy of regulatory regimes, the functioning of the market economy, and social welfare. Therefore, discourse around the land, mining, and real estate laws are critical. Many law firms across the country have dedicated teams, especially for this purpose.

CRSLMREL aims to create awareness and guide discourse in the aforementioned fields in academia by conducting studies, consulting with stakeholders, creating resource materials, and conducting capacity-building programs with industry professionals.

  • The implication of RERA and the road ahead
