Principal’s Message

Established at the heart of Tamilnadu, The Government Law College, Trichy is a pioneer for legal education in Central Tamilnadu. The legal education we seek to offer recognises that law is part of a wider social context. It is not merely a set of rules and procedures created in isolation by legislators, administrators and judges. Our vision of legal education includes equipping students with the capacity to think critically, and to deliberate on current legal issues. Our academics participate in advisory roles to government agencies, lawyers, community and business organisations, and are active in the wider community.

The strength of any law school lies in the calibre of its staff and students, the resources of its library, and the support it gets from the profession and alumni. The Government Law College Trichy is very fortunate on every score. We are supported by Experienced and dedicated Faculty Members, administrative staff, and the Law Library has our countries most extensive collection of legal research materials. My academic colleagues have expertise that spans the range of legal subjects: from business law, criminal law, property law, constitutional law, labour law,  tax and international law, the environmental law and human rights. They have national and international reputations in their fields.

Our students epitomise philosophy of academic rigour coupled with enthusiasm for the law. In 2018, our students performed extremely well in state as well as national level competitive events and won laurels and accolades. Sensing the need for research and continuing legal education, the Government Law College Trichy has successfully organised many National level seminars for the academic enrichment of Faculty members and students and also for the professional enhancement of the legal fraternity. I am confident that the time the students spend at the Government Law College Trichy will be an experience they will value throughout their life. The students have full advantage of opportunity to think, to learn, to explore new ideas and to question orthodoxy. The staffs here are happy to answer questions and to provide academic and other support as needed. I’m sure the students will find the legal education that we offer here to be personally, professionally and intellectually rewarding.
