New campus for DU Law centres

October 16, 2014

The three centres of Delhi University Law Faculty got a thorough inspection by a team from the Bar Council of India. The inspection team held interaction with students and teachers and carried a survey covering all round the campus The university has embarked on a plan to get a new campus soon that will house the existing three law centres operating out of different buildings. A proposal has been sent to the high court for shifting the faculty to a building located adjacent to the present set-up. Additionally, the faculty has amended its attendance requirements and course content to make it compliant with BCI requirements. Ashwani Kumar Bansal, Dean and Head, Law Faculty said the current batch of first-year students will be required to have 70 per cent aggregate attendance and 65 per cent attendance in each paper. Students will also have to complete at least 32 out of 46 courses. The university faculty officials presented before the BCI visiting officials their elaborate plan of infrastructure, faculty strength, qualification of faculty members, student strength etc. However, it was not convincing enough in areas of infrastructure and faculty stregth. The BCI team scrutinised attendance sheets, course material and urged students to tell them about the problems they face at campus. The Law Faculty was in news recently when the BCI, the apex regulatory body for legal education and the legal profession in India, derecognised DU's law course after it failed to seek timely extension of affiliation of its three centres.
