The State Government’s decision to provide 20 percent reservation to candidates belonging to Andhra Pradesh in the National Academy of Legal Studies & Research (NALSAR) University of Law at
NLS is fighting the state reservation case tooth and nail in the Bangalore HC. The decision is not final yet, the division bench has to pass an order. NLS alumni have further promised to pro bono assist the university in fighting this till the SC . Do we ask IIM's to do state reservation ? Students who dont have handicaps of caste, region and religion are now becoming a discriminated minority. As an alumnus of NLS (please refer to all other universities as National law universities), I think we will fight till the end if quality is sought to be diluted by regional politics.
what has to be noticed here is that as per the recent Supreme Court judgment in Shubhash Chandra, SC/ST reservations can only be done for students of that state. Essentially, the SC/ST and home state requirements will be both met in one shot. I don't think NALSAR's problem has ever been quality of students as much as the lack of quality faculty in certain areas. Once that is addressed, NALSAR will be unstoppable.
With NLS implementing the reservation (though only for the reserved students) and now NALSAR, along with NLIU,GNLU and RMNLU (although the last is a NLS only in name) the pressure on other law schools to have some sort of state reservation would now be almost insurmountable!Law schools like NLU, Jodhpur and others, which have since their inception rejected state quotas even against incentives would now be pressurised to tow the line.With the deplorable standard of faculty that is prevalent in most (if not all) NLS's, competition amongst students is the only reason for excellence. However with such schemes that might soon be a thing of the past.Sad. Sad. Very Sad
Anonymous, Bhopal is correct.All those who are aware of the state of Bhopal law school will never allow any state reservation to happen in their respective institution.
Is it from 2010 clat ??
