NLIU Bhopal awaits the appointment of its new director and registrar after outgoing director Prof SS Singh’s term ended on 31 May and former registrar SC Pande was transferred in May.

Singh is continuing in office until the appointment of the new director, while assistant registrar Ravi Pande is currently also registrar in-charge.

An administrative official at NLIU told Legally India that the shortlist of recommendations for the post of director was sent to the High Court of Madhya Pradesh (MP) by the director search committee in May.

The official said that the MP high court deputes an officer of the higher judicial services as the registrar of the law school, and Pande was transferred to a different high court in May.

Pande said that the law school currently has 17 full-time faculty and has not advertised for further faculty positions yet.

Changes at the top

NLU Jodhpur on Tuesday finalised former Delhi University Law Faculty head Poonam Saxena’s name for its new vice chancellor (VC) with Justice NN Mathur’s term coming to an end, as reported by Legally India. In May Delhi University law faculty head and Dean Gurdip Singh was appointed to replace Prof Balraj Chauhan as the VC of RMLNLU Lucknow.

March saw the appointment of former NLSIU Bangalore registrar V Nagaraj as the VC of NLUO Cuttack two months after the post at the law school went empty, with no officiating VC after Dr Chandra Krishnamurthy resigned from the post barely eight months after joining.

GNLU Gandhinagar director Dr Bimal Patel’s term is slated to end in November 2013. The GNLU Executive Council (EC) has already proposed Patel’s reappointment, however the renewal is subject to consideration of the heavily critical first school review commission report that was submitted to the law school by Prof Madhava Menon and two other commission members.
