Prof (Dr) Suraj Prasad Singh R I P

It is with deep regret sadness that India Legal announces the passing away of Prof. (Dr) Suraj Prasad Singh, an eminent figure who donned many robes in the field of law. 

A dedicated educationist, he completed his Masters in Law from Cornell University on an International Fellowship of Ford Foundation and on his return to India went on to mentor aspiring lawyers and even seasoned judicial officers. He was Vice-Chancellor, Lucknow University, Founder- Director General, Amity Law School, Noida and Professor and Head, Law Faculty, University of Delhi. A noted author of several books, his legal opinion was much sought after by those in the fields of Taxation, Corporate Law and Law of Tort.

He will be sadly missed by his family, friends, colleagues, the legal fraternity and all those who have had the fortune of interacting with him.
