The Delhi University (DU) has submitted a proposal to the Delhi high court for construction of a single campus for the three law schools under its umbrella that are currently operating from separate buildings, reported The Hindu and others. 

The new building, 75 per cent of which is allegedly ready, will house DU’s three law centres — Campus Law Centre, Law Centre-I and Law Centre-II — adjacent to the faculty of law on the North Campus, next academic session onward.

When a seven-member Bar Council of India (BCI) team visited the law centres for inspection on Tuesday, the Delhi University Students’ Union presented it with a memorandum demanding better infrastructure.

The BCI inspection was pursuant to the university’s application for re-affiliation filed with the BCI after the regulator ordered the rejection of advocate enrolment applications of recent graduates of the university.

The BCI had similarly cracked down on Osmania University and forbade its graduates from enrolling as advocates after the university protested the Rs 1.5 lakh inspection fee demanded by the regulator.

Only last month the BCI has banned Delhi University law graduates from enrolling as advocates, because the university allegedly did not follow the rules.
