“By Education I mean on all round drawing out the best in the child-body, mind and spirit. Literacy is not the end of education nor even the beginning. It is one of the means whereby men and women can be educated. Literacy in itself is no education.”

- Mahatma Gandhi

From last 50 years, I have been mingling with people mostly from rural areas, who are poor and uneducated. Even though they are uneducated, most of them have dreams about getting good education to their children. There were very few legal institutions before 1968 in this central part of Karnataka and it was very difficult for the villagers to go to faraway places for getting legal education. My vision was to provide a quality legal education to the needy people so that students from remote villages can become world class law professionals and help in building our great nation. Keeping this in view, R L Law College, Davangere was established in the year 1968 under the banner of Bapuji Educational Association. Care was also taken to add rare legal disciplines to this institution so that the possible research can be undertaken in these areas to suit the needs. The institute is lodged in a building in an area of …….. acres and is well furnished with all the necessary infrastructure creating a conducive atmosphere for imparting world class education. Over the years, with the support of large number of parents and the hard working faculty the institute has grown to be one of the best in this part of Karnataka.

“Culture and behavior are important than felicitation and money”- Jagajyothi Sri Basavanna. The seer believed in educating everyone and reforming the society. We strongly believe in these words and try hard to impart a good culture and behavior to the students along with providing a quality education.

My dear aspirants of legal education, I wholeheartedly welcome you all to this great R L Law Family for grooming you for your bright future.
