Delhi University: Not sure how & when it will recruit 150 law teachers

Delhi University’s (DU) law colleges are looking at an indefinite delay in beginning recruitment interviews for more than 100 vacant teaching positions the university had advertised on 9 June.

DU Faculty of Law head and dean Ashwini Bansal told Legally India today that the recruitment process would begin only after “approval from the authorities” was obtained but declined to comment further.

It is understood that around 150 faculty vacancies, including 50 guest faculty posts, had arisen in the law faculty in addition to the 100 full-time assistant professor positions for which DU had advertised on 9 June.

The advertisement stated that the last date for accepting applications for the posts was 26 June and that the date and time of interview “will be notified letter”.

DU law colleges are in the midst of a dispute with the Bar Council of India, which sought to dis-affiliate the colleges for their failure to apply for BCI’s mandatory inspection.

DU had argued in court that the BCI has no power to inspect it, but has simultaneously constituted a committee to implement the BCI’s inspection committee’s recommendations.
