Jabalpur is all ready to open a National Law University. The other three private universities include Balaghat, Chhatarpur, and Khandwa.
Jaibhan Singh Pabaiya, Madhya Pradesh Higher Education Minister told to leading media sources that NLU would be established in Jabalpur City which houses the principal seat of MP high court.
He further added that the Chief Justice of the High Court will be the Chancellor of the upcoming law university in Jabalpur and the Bhopal National Law Institute University. A proposal to amend the National Law University (NLIU) Act, will be tabled in the assembly.
“A decision has been taken in a recently held cabinet meeting to open a new law university and three other private universities in the state,” Pabaiya said.
“The Chief Justice of the MP High Court will be the Chancellor for both the National Law Universities of the state,” he added.
The Jabalpur varsity will be the second law university in the state. There is another National Law Institute University in Bhopal. A vice-chancellor’s post is to be created in place of the director’s post.
There are 12 government law universities under the NLIU Act, 1997, and they are affiliated to the University Grants Commission and Bar Council of India.
