“Survival of the fittest is the order of the day. Protection of the weakest is the duty of the Court.”
–J. Kurian Joseph
Above is an excerpt from the 3rd Barrister M K Nambyar Law Lecture which was delivered at the National University of Advanced Legal Studies (NUALS) on August 4, 2018 by Justice Kurian Joseph, Judge Supreme Court of India and Visitor of NUALS. The lecture primarily focused on the ‘Evolution of the Supreme Court in Protecting the Oppressed’. The importance of various judgments in relation to protection of persons such as women, tribal people etc. was highlighted.
The Presidential address was delivered by Justice Hrishikesh Roy, Acting Chief Justice of High Court of Kerala and Chancellor of NUALS. He observed that the arguments made by M. K. Nambyar were far-sighted and were accepted and used later by Courts.
Vice-Chancellor of NUALS, Prof. Dr. Rose Varghese spoke a few words about the M K Nambyar endowment instituted at NUALS by Sri. K K. Venugopal. With a corpus of Rs 50 lakhs, it aims to help economically backward students of NUALS to complete their education and also to award the M K Nambyar Gold Medal in Public Law to the student securing the highest marks in Constitutional Law and Administrative Law every year.
The lecture by Justice Kurian Joseph was insightful and inspiring for the students. To quote from the same, ‘You may not change the entire world by helping an individual, but you can change that individual’s entire world.’ [in relation to providing legal services.]
The Legal Aid clinic of the National University of Advanced Legal studies (NUALS), Kochi with its aim of attaining a litigation free society launched the program ‘Advokates and Advokids’ initiated by District Legal Services Authority (DLSA), Ernakulam. The program is a platform where the legal experts and law students join hands to help the less privileged attain the ends of justice and also create awareness about their rights.
The inaugural address delivered by the DLSA Chairman Hon’ble Dr. Kauser Edappagath, followed the presidential address by Rose Varghese, the Hon’ble Vice Chancellor, NUALS. Dr. Kauser informed the volunteers as to the prevailing scheme’s undertaken by DLSA and also highlighted the importance of being committed towards the cause of the needy. The Vice Chancellor congratulated the efforts of the faculty co-ordinator Mrs. Namitha K.L.
The Hon’ble Secretary of DLSA, Sub-Judge Sri A.M Basheer and Prof. Dr. M.C Valson were the felicitators. Sri A.M Basheer gave an insight into the working of the program and enlightened the volunteers as to their duties towards the under-privileged. The Munsiff-Magistrate of Ernakulam Sri Shamnad S. and Sri Shyam Padman (Advocate, High Court of Kerala) were the key speakers in the academic sessions dealing with anti-ragging and the topic ‘Common pitfalls in social networking/cyber space – awareness, avoidance & management’ respectively. The anti-ragging session by Sri Shamnad S. came at an appropriate time for the freshmen. The interactive session by Sri Shyam Padman encouraged the students to empower themselves by stepping out of the virtual world.
Supreme Court: The Vacation Bench of UU Lalit and Deepak Gupta JJ. has passed an order directing National University of Advanced Legal Studies (NUALS) to award compensatory marks to candidates who lost time during this year’s Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) due to technical glitches by applying the formula suggested by V. Giri, learned Senior Advocate for Respondents 2&3, NUALS and core committee CLAT 2018 respectively, and include the qualified students in the second round of counselling. Compensatory marks would be awarded after taking note of data of total correct and incorrect answers given by the candidate during the online test.
However, the Court made clear that any seat allocation made pursuant to the first round of counselling shall not be affected by the revision of results. The Court said that a candidate who improves upon his score after the publication of revised results and thereby becomes eligible for admission to another NLU will not lose the fee deposited with the earlier NLU. This revision has to be undertaken by June 15 and the revised results have to be published on CLAT website by June 16.
Earlier, on June 6, the court had refused to stay the counselling process and had said that any steps in the matter would be subject to further orders of the apex court. The apex court had on June 11 refused to order a “re-test” of the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) 2018 or stop the counselling process. [Disha Panchal v. Union of India, 2018 SCC OnLine SC 603, order dated 13-06-2018]
After the Vacation Bench of L. Nageswara Rao and Mohan M. Shantanagoudar, JJ refused to cancel the CLAT 2018 examination and allowed NUALS to declare the result, the CLAT 2018 results have been published today on the CLAT website.
CLAT 2018 was conducted by National University of Advanced Legal Studies (NUALS). The said entrance examination was under the radar due to a lot of criticism and irregularities placed by the students. Various representations were filed by the aggrieved students who had to face such irregularities while appearing for the said test. One of the writ petition challenging the conduct of CLAT 2018 was filed before the Supreme Court seeking the cancellation of the examination.
The Law Schools aspirants can access their results here.
