History at a glance:

The Bishop Cotton Women’s Christian Law College is the great grand child of the prestigious Bishop Cotton School which found its establishment in the year 1865. In 1911 the School was bifurcated and the Bishop Cotton Girls School was housed in Stanford House. In 1985, Bishop Cotton College was started which was upgraded to Bishop Cotton Women's Christian Degree College in 1987. They moved into the present campus in 1999. This College being dedicated to the cause of women's higher education which is considered to be a vital service to the nation, took initiative to start a Law College exclusively for woman as it was felt that woman should know their rights and should fight for their cause. Thus Bishop Cotton Women's Christian Law College came into existence in 2002.

 The Motto :

The Motto of the college

"nec dextrorsum nec sinistrorsum"
is the Latin equivalent of the words
“Neither to the right nor to the left.”

These words as found in the Bible in Deuteronomy 5: 32 were spoken to Israelites by Moses with the implication that they should strictly abide by the commandments of the Lord. This motto depicts integrity and determination. The motto emphatically depicts steadiness, steadfastness and straight forwardness.


The Shield and the Crest:

The Crest on the College Shield is that of the family of Bishop George Edward Lynch Cotton of Calcutta. The Crest is divided vertically down the centre. On the right side (Dexter) of the crest , (left side as we look at it) are found Arms of the Bishopric of Calcutta,

namely the Bishop’s Mitre (Head Dress), the Bishop’s Stalk and the Open Bible. The left side (sinister) of the Crest (Right side as we look at it) contains the Arms of the ancient house of Cotton of Combermere in England to which Bishop Cotton belonged.

The white 8-shapped figures are the skeins of cotton which represent their line of work. The inverted V-shaped Chevron represents a distinguished service in military. Thus the Crest symbolizes the godliness, work, service, and courage which a student of Law is to be adorned with.
