Bangalore lawyer group lobbies for 50%: NLS reservation of only 25% ‘shocking’, state’s students been ‘suffering’

Upping the ante, a Bangalore-based association of advocates is lobbying the state law minister for NLSIU Bengaluru to have a 50% domicile quota, rather than the 25% that the cabinet has recently signed off on.

According to the letter ( full copy here), as published by Livelaw, this is not the first time the Advocate’s Association of Bengaluru has gotten involved in the issue.

In 2018, when the bill planning a 50% reservation had been rejected by the state governor, the association had made two representations to the governor, it said.

Not the association
Not the association

The association described the most recent reduction in the reservation from 50 to 25% as “shocking”, noting:

Karnataka students have
Karnataka students have

So, naturally, the association has requested for the reservation to be upped to 50% again.

Not many further arguments are made in the three-page letter besides the repeated expression of shock and reiteration of the demand but as a gambit to ensure at least the 25% reservation passes without major hitches, this could be a solid strategic play.
