NLU Jodhpur to introduce 25% state-based reservation from 2018 onwards

NLU Jodhpur is the fourth national law university (NLU) to join the league of old-school NLUs giving out state-based reservations to students, after Nalsar Hyderabad, NLSIU Bangalore and NUJS Kolkata, having reserved 25% of seats for students from Rajasthan, reported the Times of India.

The Rajasthan higher education department ordered NLUJ to make 25% domicile reservations in its admissions the academic session of 2018 onwards.

Last year Nalsar Hyderabad was looking at a 50% state-based reservation for seats in the 3 year LLB program, for which the law school will receive land from the state.

By contrast, NLSIU Bangalore was facing a looming 50% state-based reservation in its 5 year LLB program, while NUJS Kolkata had already begun reserving 10 seats for West Bengal domiciled candidates in its 5 year LLB program.
