BCCL has a cherished as it came into being with relentless and untiring Endeavour’s of Late Atish Chandra Sinha, the doyen of Kandi Raj Family, on 5th October, 2002. The college is affiliated to Kalyani University and approved by the Bar Council of India. Shri Atish Chandra Sinha accomplished this Herculean task of establishing a law college with the sheer desire to impart legal education and create social engineers as he himself couldn’t continue his legal education, being admitted, due to some reasons. Hence he wanted to materialize it by establishing a Law College which would in turn create lots of legal minds. This was need of the hour too, as there was no any law college in the District of Murshidabad. Then the college was named after and in loving memory of his father, Late Bimal Chandra Sinha.
Presently the college is run under the kind patronage of his son, Prof. /Dr. Aninda Sinha, who is a Professor at Indian Institute of Sciences, Bangalore. During initial stages the college was made operational in Raja Birendra Chandra College, but later on in the year 2006, it was shifted to the present location. Earlier the course offered was LL.B. 5 years, but later on from 2006 it successfully introduced the B.A.LL.B.(H) – 5 years integrated course as the guidelines & direction from the Bar Council of India. The college has nurtured many a great legal minds and carved a niche for itself in the legal area and will continue the same.
