Nalsar relaxes attendance by 20%, projects by 80% & intros restorative justice to de-stress

Nalsar Hyderabad relaxed its attendance requirement from 95 per cent to 75 per cent semester and reduced the number of academic research papers to be written by students per semester from five to one, according to The Hindu.

The law school has also introduced the “restorative justice system” on campus; e.g., students found guilty of cheating will be penalised by working in its library. The administration plans to also take “steps” like introducing film festivals on campus.

Nalsar Vice chancellor Faizan Mustafa told The Hindu:

“We are hoping that our steps to make academic calendar of the student less stressful are implemented by other universities… Our students have to write only one academic research paper and the remaining four papers can be based on their personal interests such as music, movies, book review, etc”

Nalsar had held a workshop in April on “Restorative Justice Procedures in the Higher Education Institutions to overcome the problem of Students' Suicides on University Campuses”. On 30 April the Andhra Pradesh high court appointed Mustafa and Nalsar faculty member Prof Martin Price to the committee to examine the issue of student suicides on campus.
