The students of NLSIU Bangalore have started a protest today, abstaining from classes all day, after learning that its interim administration is (probably) planning to reshuffle the Executive Council (EC), potentially to oppose the swift appointment of new vice chancellor (VC) Prof Sudhir Krishnaswamy.

JGLS Sonepat has hired 75 new faculty for this academic year growing its total full-time faculty strength to 230 from 163, as at the same time last year, growing the proportion of LLB graduates from all national law schools in its faculty to 30%.

The NLSIU Alumni Association has sent a letter to the Chief Justice of India (CJI) to request the prompt appointment of Prof Sudhir Krishnaswamy as next vice chancellor of NLSIU Bangalore.

Aparna Kumar, 1999 NLSIU Bangalore graduate and 2002 batch Indian Police Service (IPS) officer, has been bestowed the government’s Tenzing Norgay National Adventure Award 2018 by the President of India for her mountaineering achievements.

According to a CNN News 18 sting operation just aired, undergraduate law degrees (amongst other subject) are available for sale by agents for the princely sum of Rs 2.1 lakh (even less than the recently revised Rs 2.3 lakh fee NLSIU Bangalore students have to pay for a single year of study).

In a bid to fix NLSIU Bangalore’s ageing network infrastructure, which had broken down for around two weeks in part of the campus, the administration - still under interim stewardship pending the appointment of Prof Sudhir Krishnaswamy as vice chancellor (VC) - had ‘upgraded’ its internet connections to a new provider.

The Bar Council of India (BCI) has in a press release said it would not approve any more law schools for three years, after the number of schools had ballooned to 1,500, meaning it had approved around 25% additional law colleges since five years ago.

NLU Jodhpur may soon start its very first elected student body, said vice chancellor Prof Poonam Saxena.

Three NLSIU Bangalore graduates - Lavanya Rajamani (1996 batch), Dev Gangjee (2000) and Tarunabh Khaitan (2004) - have been appointed to prestigious full professorships at Oxford University, and are very likely the first law professors with Indian undergraduate law degrees to have done so, at least in living memory.
