From The Principal’s Desk


Greetings and Welcome

The aim of legal education is primarily empowerment of people who in turn enlighten the rest of the society about their rights, duties and privileges to be enjoyed. The imparting of education would remain imperfect if it fails to empower the stakeholder. In fact, such empowerment enables the stakeholder of law to lead their life independently
with competence and to help in the process of justice delivery system.

Legal education is a professional course by nature. The dispensation of law teaching in India continues to be same as it was more than a century back. But gradually, the perception has been changed along with the process of reform in law and so also in legal education. As such legal profession has undergone tremendous transformation which
requires quality legal education and J. B. Law College, Guwahati is not an exception for the same.

Jnanadabhiram Barooah Law College popularly known as J. B. Law College is located in the heart of Guwahati city, at R. G. Baruah Road, beside the Anandaram Baruah Fly Over, Chandmari. This college started its glorious journey in imparting quality legal education long back in the year 1969. Jnanadabhiram Barooah Law College is the first law college throughout the North East India assessed by National Assessment and Accreditation Council
