Dr. B R Ambedkar National University starts operations with full capacity
New Delhi : Dr. BR Ambedkar National Law University which was constituted in 2012 by Haryana government and later stalled in bureaucracy, has now started its maiden batch for its 5-year integrated course. This move could be termed as a big leap for Haryana.
Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar has been pushing for an early start. Vinay Kapoor Mehra the founder vice-chancellor of the university informed, "DBRANLU is going to start its first batch for BA LLB (Hons.) Five-Years Integrated Course from the academic year 2019-20. The total number of seats for the BA LLB (Hons.) Five-Years Integrated Course shall be 120 seats. All the seats are full as per norms for the session."
Presently DBRANLU is operating from interim premises and is planning to move to its campus within a few months.
The Chief Justice of India or his nominee, who shall be sitting judge of the Supreme Court, hall be the visitor of the University. Honourable Governor of Haryana, Satyadev Narayan Arya, is the Chancellor of the University. Subject to admission test results, at least 25% of the admissions will be reserved for the people who live in Haryana, and 1/5th of the reserved positions will be held for persons whose land was purchased for the site of the school.
