The Consortium of National Law Universities (NLUs) vide a Press release dated January 8, 2021 has contemplated on whether to reopen the National Law Universities across the country.
It is understood that the Governing Body of Consortium of National Law Universities considered the proposal of reopening Universities in January 2021 at its meeting held on 23rd December 2020 and 8th January 202l.
Pertinently, the Consortium in its Press Release emphasised on the fact that NLUs “are distinct from State Universities in several important ways” and further postulated various factors which must be taken into account before making any decision to open up campuses for physical classes.
On a concluding note, the Press Release states that “the Consortium resolved that physical classes should commence only after universal vaccination of students, faculty and staff is completed.” However, the Consortium reserved to review the decision at the end of February.
Varsities across India have been closed since March 2020. However, there were a few attempts to open campuses in mid-2020 which were later aborted. Read our earlier coverages here and here.
