Jogesh Chandra Chaudhuri College’s Webinar on ADR [Aug 1-2]: Register Now!

About the Institution

In 1970 at the instance, initiative and financial contributions of Late Ranadeb Chaudhuri and his family members and with the active co-operation of other legal luminaries, who formed the first Governing Body of the College, Jogesh Chandra Chaudhuri College of Law was established by CHAUDHURI FOUNDATION TRUST. The Law College was named after Jogesh Chandra Chaudhuri who has an honoured place in India’s independence movement.

Jogesh Chandra, who was educated in Calcutta and Oxford, was called to the Bar in England. On returning home he joined the Calcutta High Court. His legal acumen and interest in law found expression in the famous Legal Journal “Calcutta Weekly Notes”, of which he was the Founder – Editor.

In the next generation, one finds, as it were, a continuation of talent is well–known figures as Ranadeb, an eminent lawyer and educationist, and Jayantanath, ex-Commander-in Chief of India’s armed forces.

Early in life, Jogesh Chandra came in close touch with the great Surendranath Banerjee, ever to be remembered as the ‘Father of Indian Nationalism’. He chose for his lifemate, Sarasibala, a daughter of Surendranath, and dedicated himself to work for the country under his inspiring leadership. There was not a session of the Congress in those days where he was not an active participant. On many occasions, he acted in such responsible positions as Secretary of the Congress.

The College bears his name and it is hoped that we will live up to the lofty ideals of the public-spirited man, Jogesh Chandra Chaudhuri. The College has completed its Silver Jubilee and we look forward to the Golden with a sense of accomplishment.
