NLU Jabalpur is slated to start its first semester of its LLB for 120 students, who are to be admitted through the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2018 this August, from a temporary campus leased on astronomical rent.

Its director Prof Balraj Chauhan told us today that with state government support of Rs 5 crore the NLU was bearing the monthly rent of Rs 27 lakh for half a building and two hostel blocks in the BSNL training centre in Jabalpur which comfortably accommodates one batch of 120 students.

The NLU, Madhya Pradesh’ second after NLIU Bhopal, will publish its first list and its waiting list of selected CLAT 2018 candidates on 20 July, conduct admissions between 21 July and 27 July and begin its session by the first week of August.

The fee for its BALLB degree, the only one the law school is offering this year, is fixed at Rs 2.5 lakh.

Chauhan said that he was waiting for state government approval for its faculty recruitment notification, and that he aims to recruit around 18 teachers, including law and arts subjects.

Construction of the NLU’s permanent campus is yet to begin on the 120 acre land allotted to it by the state government near the Jabalpur airport, he said.
