NUJS Kolkata is offering a 45-hour degree course for up to a total of 40 fourth- and fifth-year law students about the law and judicial system in JK Rowling’s Harry Potter universe.

NUJS Kolkata has suspended three male students, including two in their final year of the LLB, from the law school, and five male students from the NUJS hostels, for an alleged brawl that had broken out on campus last month. The suspension is effective for one semester.

Kirit P Mehta School of Law, NMIMS, Mumbai placed 47 out of 59 graduates in its LLB class of 2018, including 15 pre placement offers (PPO), with law firms, companies and in LLM programs.

NLSIU Bangalore students have posted several new accounts and allegations of sexual harassment and assault by other students on the law school’s virtual internal noticeboard over the last week.

HNLU Raipur placed 62 out of 150 students graduating their LLB this year, with a number of law firms, companies, policy organisations, LLMs and other places.

NUJS Kolkata is perhaps an inch closer to the appointment of a new vice chancellor (VC) and a permanent registrar and accounts officer after protracted periods of working with temporary arrangements for these posts, according to an email shared by the Student Juridical Association (SJA) with its members.

HNLU Raipur chancellor and Bilaspur high court chief justice AK Tripathi visited the law school’s campus yesterday and addressing a gathering of all its students and teachers, saying that “Caesar has already been buried on the 3rd”, referring to the 3 October resignation of HNLU’s former vice chancellor Prof Sukh Pal Singh.

The National Accreditation and Assessment Council (NAAC) has completed its assessment of NLSIU Bangalore, awarding it an A grade but a lower composite score than Nalsar Hyderabad, NLU Delhi, RGNUL Patiala and NLUO Cuttack, while Jindal Global University scored a 3.26.

NLU Delhi’s entire male student population has been blacklisted from debates at St Stephens, Delhi University, as several female students have come forward on social media to recount sexual harassment stories, following social media posts by students naming harassers that went viral.

HNLU Raipur’s chancellor has appointed retired high court judge Justice CB Bajpayee as interim vice chancellor, following the resignation of Prof Sukh Pal Singh in the face of student strikes.

Word has come in that the embattled HNLU Raipur vice chancellor Sukh Pal Singh has resigned, according to several authoritative student sources, though the official confirmation has not yet been supplied to students.

At HNLU Raipur 23 students began an indefinite hunger strike at 8am today demanding vice chancellor (VC) Sukh Pal Singh’s resignation, after six days of peaceful protests and a no-confidence motion signed by almost the entire student body against the VC proved unsuccessful in outing him from the law school.

HNLU Raipur students have passed a motion of no confidence and vowed to go on strike again to protest against vice chancellor (VC) Sukh Pal Singh, who has been reinstated after removal from the post has been stayed by the Supreme Court pending the fuller appeal.

As it had widely signposted, the Supreme Court has taken a tragically overdue but also eventually progressive step by decriminalising consensual sexual acts between persons of the same sex today, which had infamously been prohibited under Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code. It held Section 377 to be arbitrary, irrational and unconstitutional.
