London returned Professor Prabhash Ranjan who had, after a bureaucratic dispute, resigned from faculty position at NUJS Kolkata to join NLU Jodhpur will now be joining the South Asian University, Delhi.

11th October, 2013 was Professor Ranjan’s last working day at NLU Jodhpur.

According to sources, Prof. Ranjan was not comfortable working with the ‘system’ at NLU Jodhpur.

One of the NLU Jodhpur students said that Professor Ranjan was “one of the best that we had” and that his resignation was “unexpected and unacceptable” for the students.

Professor Ranjan’s comment: I left NLU J for better career prospects and I don’t think much should be read into this. As a professional, I have every right to do so. It is quite normal for people to change jobs.

  1. As a law student of South Asian University, I am feeling very privileged that a gilt edged arrow is being inducted in the quiver of SAU Faculty of Legal Studies. Dr. Prabhash Ranjan is a very dynamic and punctual person. I attended one of his guest lectures on BIT. Those lectures were quite brain storming.

    To my friends of NLU and NJUS- I want to give you a good news. I would try my level best to make available in net all of the lectures of Dr Prabhash Ranjan. Moreover, you are cordially invited to attend the ‘SAU FLS Lecture Series’ on every Friday and Monday afternoon (3-5 pm).
