NLS, Nalsar VCs bemoan ‘privatisation of law’ because all students want is corporate law

Nalsar Hyderabad vice chancellor Prof Faizan Mustafa said at an event on education organised by the New Indian Express: “People are coming to law colleges not because they want to become good lawyers, it’s because they want to become corporate lawyers.”

He added: “We should look at our curriculum. We are loaded with corporate courses because that sells.”

At the same event, NLSIU Bangalore vice chancellor Prof Venkat Rao agreed: “Our students aren’t going to lower courts to practice, they are going to corporates. Privatisation of law is already happening here.”

The complaint is not new, of course, and echoes the warnings made by others such as NLU doyen Prof Madhava Menon at least nine years ago.
