 Email  Facebook  Tweet  Linked-in

The National University of Study and Research in Law was formally inaugrated by the Chief Justice of Jharkhand High Court and Supreme Court Judge designate Gyan Sudha Misra On Monday, April 26, 2010.

The university becomes the 14th of the elite national law universities of the country. Initially it will be operational from its interim campus at BIT, Mesra. An MOU with BIT has enabled the law school to occupy the erstwhile building of small scale research and development organisation of BIT having 72 rooms. Arrangement has been made for the accommodation of 60 students of the new university at the BIT campus itself.

NLU Jharkhand is expected to start offering courses from July to 150 undergraduate students. Half of the seats will be reserved for students from the state. It will admit students through an all India entrance examination. A national law university in the state of Jharkhand was a dream of the first chief justice of the Jharkhand High Court, Justice V.K Gupta, since the creation of the state in 2000. A plethora of legal hurdles stalled its inception. The Government has already arranged for a corpus of Rs 50 crore and have appointed a core committee headed by Justice N.N Tiwary. The first task of the committee would be to appoint a vice-chancellor. Lets wish the infant law school all the very best for a radiant future.
