NLU Ranchi, Jharkhand to be given 100-acre campus, plans foreign tie-ups

Jharkhand’s new National University of Study and Research in Law (NUSRL) Ranchi could become one of the best law schools in India in the next two to three years, vowed NUSRL’s dean-in-charge of faculty Alok Kumar Gupta.

NUSRL would be rated as one of the best law colleges in the country, having already set “a benchmark for the various new universities in Jharkhand”, said Gupta, adding that the Jharkhand government had allotted 100 acres of land and that top-quality infrastructure would be developed very soon.

Gupta said that although the land transfer documents had not yet been received formally and a final cabinet decision was pending, the decision was announced by the Jharkhand government in May and a stone-laying ceremony has also been carried out by Arjun Munda, the chief minister of Jharkhand, and the chief justice of the Jharkhand High Court on 12 May.

Currently the university was operating from a makeshift campus from Ranchi's Birla Institute of Technology (BIT Mesra) nearby.

Gupta also added that NUSRL was in the process of finalising Memoranda of Understandings (MOU) and tie-ups with various foreign universities.

He said that the university had been receiving applications from all parts of the country for the second batch starting from July 2011.

NUSRL which was established in 2010 and started its first undergraduate batch in November 2010 on the basis of CLAT scores. This year the Jharkhand national law university is also inviting applications for the second under-graduate batch which will start in July. The university will also select candidates on the basis of CLAT scores.

The university is offering 100 seats for its BA LLB (hons) programme out of which 50 seats are reserved for students from Jharkhand in addition to further reservations.

Details are available on the Nusrl website.
