While he won laurels in the legal profession, his life’s passion was in the field of education and he devoted himself heart and soul to the furtherance of its cause. He was elected to the Syndicated of the University in 1897 and became Tagore Professor of law in 1898. Most of the teachers and scholars whom he attracted to the University were later to attain high eminence in several fields. Among these may be mentioned Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, Dr. C. V. Raman and Sir B. N. Seal.
