Andhra University College of Law is one of the constituent colleges of Andhra University established in 1945.

History[edit]

The Law College was established in 1945. The College owes its genesis to the farsightedness and wisdom of Dr. C. R. Reddy, the founder Vice-Chancellor of this University.

The College was part of the Department of Arts, Commerce and Law College from the beginning, but has been reconstructed as a separate College of Law on April 14, 1989. As a mark of respect towards chief architect of the Constitution of India Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar, the College has been renamed as Andhra University, Dr. B. R. Ambedkar College of law with effect from May 10, 1991.
