The Chaudhuri Foundation Trust established the Jogesh Chandra Chaudhuri College of Law in 1970 on the initiative and with the financial contributions of the late Ranadeb Chaudhuri and his family members, as well as the active participation of other legal luminaries who formed the College's first Governing Body. The law college is named after Jogesh Chandra Chaudhuri, who held a prestigious position in the Indian freedom movement.
Jogesh Chandra, who studied in Calcutta and Oxford, was called to the Bar in England. As soon as he got back home, he joined the Calcutta High Court. He was the founder and editor of the famous legal journal "Calcutta Weekly Notes," where his legal knowledge and enthusiasm were put to use.
The brilliance of well-known individuals like Jayantanath, a former commander-in-chief of India's armed forces, and Ranadeb, a renowned lawyer and educator, continues in the next generation.
Early in his youth, Jogesh Chandra developed a close relationship with the legendary Surendranath Banerjee, known as the "Father of Indian Nationalism." He committed himself to working for the nation under his inspiring leadership and selected Sarasibala, a daughter of Surendranath, as his life partner. He actively participated in each and every Congress session at that time. He frequently performed such important duties as Secretary of the Congress.
It is hoped that we will maintain the high values of the public-spirited hero, Jogesh Chandra Chaudhuri, whose name is attached to the college. With a sense of satisfaction as we approach the Golden Jubilee, the College has successfully completed its Silver Jubilee.
