NLSIU in a fix over govt's 50% reservation move 22.6.2017 deccanherald.com
The state government's "unilateral move" to pass a bill seeking 50% reservation for state students in the National Law School of India University (NLSIU) has put the university authorities in a fix. Sources in NLSIU said the university officials welcomed the state government's intention to protect the interests of local students but were concerned about the way it was executed. "The draft bill sought 30% reservation and the state government increased it to 50% following the Opposition's demand, without consulting the university," they added. Moreover, NLSIU has a national character and is seen as a leading institution on a par with IITs and IIMs when it comes to the quality of its education. "We have to understand that NLSIU is a leading member of the fraternity of some of the best law schools in the country. The university has entered into an agreement with other universities to admit students through the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT). The new law will have a negative effect on this," sources ...
