Tamil Nadu NLU seeks new VC (not necessarily with 10 years of professorship): Bimal Patel, judges start search

Tamil Nadu National Law University (TNNLU Tiruchirappalli) is looking for a new vice chancellor (VC), with the search spearheaded by ex-Supreme Court Justice AK Sikri, ex-Madras high court Justice P Kalaiyarasan, and ex-GNLU Gandhinagar director Dr Bimal Patel.

The requirements for its new VC are rather flexible. Instead of just having a flat 10 years of professorship experience requirement, the committee would apparently also accept 10 years of “experience in a reputed research and/or academic administrative organization with proof of having demonstrated academic leadership”, so long as the candidate has “proven leadership quality” and promote “teaching and research at the highest levels of excellence”.

More details in the application here (or below); the deadline is 28 October.

The selected candidate will succeed outgoing VC Prof Kamala Sankaran.
