About the college

Mar Gregorios College of Law is envisioned as a centre of excellence in legal education. The college was established in 2012 as another milestone in the glorious Mar Ivanios Vidyanagar Campus which was founded in 1949 by the Servant of God Archbishop Geevarghese Mar Ivanios.

The motto of Mar Gregorios College of Law is “Righteousness is Immortal” taken from the book of Wisdom 1:15 of the Holy Bible. It symbolises the values of righteousness, fairness and goodness that the institution seeks to propagate. The Institute does not only impart legal knowledge to its students, but also teaches them to utilise it ethically and righteously, for the men who uphold righteousness will ever remain immortal.
