Bennett University’s law school founding dean and former Nalsar Hyderabad and NLSIU Bangalore professor Prof VC Vivekanandan has been appointed as the new vice chancellor (VC) of HNLU Raipur.

His appointment follows the resignation of previous VC Prof Sukh Pal Singh in October of last year, following student protests and hungerstrikes against his administration.

His successor, Vivekanandan, is a 1993 Bangalore University LLB graduate with a 2004 masters from Acharya Nagarjuna University, and a 2006 NLSIU Bangalore PhD.

From 2001 he has been MHRD IP chair professor at Nalsar Hyderabad, between 2009 and 2010 he was dean of Rajiv Gandhi School of IP Law at IIT Kharagpur, and in 2017 he was the founding dean of the law school of Bennett University.

At NLSIU, he was for a time also professor of law, as well as head of its distance education department.

Vivekanandan also has industry experience: from 1992 to 1998 he was bureau head of the Dalal Street Journal and according to his Nalsar faculty profile, also “editor and publisher with Inde Global Communications”.

We are trying to reach out to Vivekanandan and will update the story if we manage to speak to him.
