    Surendranath Banerjee needs no introduction as a Great Patriot, political leader, orator, teacher, educationist, journalist; his place in history is secured. He is the founder of the institution and his noble idea of bringing higher education within the reach of the widest possible parts of society is still being followed faithfully.In 1882, the Presidency School which formed the nuclear of the present Institution was made over to Surendranath. 1st January 1884, he raised it to the status of a college affiliated to the F.A. standard and named it “THE PRESIDENCY INSTITUTION”. Within the year the institution was converted into a full fledged, first grade college under the name “RIPON COLLEGE”.

    Its activity was further extended through the opening of the Post-Graduate Department of Law in 1884 and subsequently affiliated to the Calcutta University in the year 1885 as an independent professional college. Since then as long as he lived, Surendranath not only remained at the helm of affairs but was also active as a teacher.Surendranath attached the name of Lord Ripon to his Institution as a tribute to the enlightened policies of the Viceroy. But after the attainment of independence, a goal very dear to the heart of Surendranath, a change was made and the name of Surendranath was associated with the institution founded and lovingly nurtured by him.

    Since the inception of the Lok-Adalats in the Annexe Building of the Calcutta High Court under the able guidance and leadership of Justice Dilip Kumar Basu, the students of this esteemed institution always took active part. They get specialised training for becoming good counselors to affectively adopt the alternative dispute resolution(ADR). Through counseling camps in the different parts of the state it has received applause and appreciation from the Bar, press and law consuming people particularly the down-trodden.As a corollary to centenary programme, the college started Legal Aid Clinic in the college premises to render legal assistance for ensuring social justice to the victimized poor and downtrodden people. 21st century poses new challenges in every sphere including the field of legal education. Keeping in view its heritage this college is considering re-organized all academic activities in such a way so that students may be prepared to face every challenge of the 21st Century.
