Ramaiah Research Policy

Ramaiah Research, Consultancy and Extension Centre


According to Merriam – Webster (1828) Research is a studious inquiry or examination; especially : investigation or experimentation aimed at the discovery and interpretation of facts, revision of accepted theories or laws in the light of new facts, or practical application of such new or revised theories or laws. Research is the path for growth in any educational institution. It is a mode of identifying lacunas in the existing system and working towards a better tomorrow. We at Ramaiah College of Law sincerely believe in assimilating the benefits of academic teachings with society rooted research avenues. We aim to equip our law students with the necessary skills to contribute to the contemporary socio-legal issues through mandatory research writings, field based internships and collaborative research projects.
