Profile of National Law Institute University (NLIU)

Legal education never received the attention it deserved in this country. It is a paradox that the Constitution ushered in the ideal of rule of law and adopted the policy of development through law but little attention was paid to legal studies. For almost half a century study of law in Indian Universities has been in doldrums.

It was increasingly realised by the professionals and academicians that the system of law teaching was thoroughly inadequate, unimaginative and divorced from the major public issues of the day but attempts to change have that have been few and far between.

It goes to the credit of Madhya Pradesh Government to realise that the policy of globalisation and liberalisation opened up new economic and developmental opportunities for the people. Trans-national and supranational regimes threw new challenges as much to economics and finance as to law and the legal profession.

A trained cadre of dedicated and informed lawyers is needed to take up the responsibilities generated by the new developments all over the world.

Large law firms, professionals and consultants are needed not only to handle the multi-national legal issues but also to enrich the country by taking sensible and profitable national stance in order to make India a vibrant and strong economic power in the world. The legislators, the administrators and business leaders need to have a strong legal background to take up the emerging challenges and opportunities staring in the face today.

The National Law Institute University (NLIU) has been established by Act No. 41 of 1997 of the Madhya Pradesh Legislature to fill the gap and providing most modern legal education through multidisciplinary teaching and training of newer skills needed for the profession.The University launched its first academic programme in 1998 and teaching for five year B.A., LL.B. course commenced from September 1 of that year.

The cumulative effect is to make for an intensive environment of learning where the teacher and the taught co-operate in inquisitive exploration.

The campus is surrounded with hills and lush greenery and the city is easily accessible. The NLIU has been allotted 40 acres of land on a hillock by the Government of Madhya Pradesh to develop a modern campus with modern academic and residential facilities.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


INFRASTRUCTURE
The construction of the new campus complex has begun under the supervision of internationally well-known Architects M/s SEMAC Pvt. Ltd., Bangalore. Every care has been taken to ensure that the hillock's natural character is undisturbed and rather enhanced. It manifests a majestic blend of nature with modern edifices.

Halls of Residence
The University offers separate residential facilities for men and women. All residents are provided with single rooms each having modular study and computer table, spacious steel almirah and cupboard. The Halls boast of manicured lawns, gymnasium, common room fitted with colour television and cable network, reading room and indoor sports facilities. The residents are also provided with 24 hours hot and cold water and laundry services.

The modest mess facilities at the Halls of Residence endeavor to provide for quality breakfast, lunch, evening tea with snakes and dinner all with different menu for each day of the week. The menu ranges from North Indian and South Indian to the Chinese. Non-vegetarian food is served four times a week. Late night snacks are provided during the exam weeks. Sundays are usually a special treat.

The Women's Hall boasts of a magnificent Japanese Rock Garden. The spirit of endurance and independence of women is celebrated in the Campus on the eve of Women's Day. The week long festival organised exclusively by the Women's Hall epitomises feminine grace and freedom of women. A member of the faculty advises the women students on all issues of concern, including sexual harassment.

A new Hall of Residence with more amenities for research scholars and senior students is in the midst of construction. Hon'ble Justice A.K. Patnaik, Chief Justice of Madhya Pradesh High Court, laid the foundation stone of this building.

The students participate through various committees in the maintenance of discipline and other activities of the hostel viz. 'Dining Committee', 'Cultural Committee', 'Discipline Committee', 'Medical Assistance Committee' and 'Event Management Committee' - making the Halls of Residence unique in themselves and distinguished from the rest in terms of practicing participatory management and living democracy.

Ragging is strictly prohibited inside and outside the University Campus. The 'First Response and Counselling Committee' has been established and empowered to take immediate action against any untoward action and also to counsel the fresher. However, care is taken that strict discipline in this regard does not stifle a healthy interaction between the fresher and their seniors.

Two NLIU professors dismissed

Bhopal: The two professors of the prestigious National Law Institute University (NLIU), professor G S Vajpayee and associate professor Dr Moin Mustazar, who were indicted for awarding marks to students without evaluating their answer sheets, were terminated from their services on Friday.

In another case in which NLIU professor Yogendra Shrivastav has been accused of acquiring fours degrees in one year, the executive committee has formed one- member committee of retired IAS to look into the matter. Decision in this regard was taken unanimously during the nine-member executive council (EC) meeting at NLIU. Orders in this regard were handed over to the accused professors at their residences.

A one- man committee headed by retired justice VK Agrawal that probed into the allegation submitted its report to the director of the university with recommendation for stringent action. The recommendation called for punishment to the extent of their summary dismissal to set an example that no one should ever dare to repeat similar mistake in future. Vajpayee and Mustazar, according to the finding, were guilty of awarding marks to three students who appeared in the PHD entrance examination test held way back in 2008.

Among the five students appeared in the entrance test, the professors did not check the answer sheets of three students and awarded them marks so low that they were not qualified enough to get admission. One was given 7 marks out of 60 and the other was given 14 and followed by 16 to the third person.

The mark sheets of two others were evaluated by another Professor who was also in the panel to conduct the entrance test, sources added. When the issue came to notice, the University had suspended them on September 21, 2010 and sought their explanation after the preliminary probe found them guilty.

Urban Admin Dept most reluctant to share data under RTI; Mr. Gaur are you listening?

Bhopal: The Madhya Pradesh Urban Administration Department aces the list of the states government departments that are most reluctant to share data sought under the Right to Information (RTI) Act, a new study reveals.

Almost 40 per cent of the 11,000 appeals that the Madhya Pradesh State Information Commission (MPSIC) received over the course of the last five-and-a-half years are against the Urban Administration Department, according to the study conducted by National Law Institute Universitys (NLUI) Cell for Research in International Law (CRIL).The Panchayat and Rural Development Department and the Health Department jointly occupy the second slot among departments that do not like to entertain RTI applications. Apart from these three departments, all other 49 departments of the state make up 20 per cent of the appeals received by the MPSIC. The CRIL research also found that women lagged behind their male counterparts in using the RTI.A mere two per cent women in the state have, until now, used the RTI act, the study shows.
