Academic session of the National Law University (NLU), Meghalaya which is the newest among all the NLUs is set to commence from July 10 this year.
This was informed by Meghalaya High Court Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee during an outreach programme organised by the Education Department in collaboration with the NLU for principals, teachers and students of higher secondary schools in East Khasi Hills and adjoining districts here today.
Justice Banerjee informed that online applications opened on April 21 and will end on May 21, with the admissions test slated for May 28. The merit list will then be published on June 9 and classes will begin from July 10.
He also informed that, for undergraduate courses, a total of 60 students will be enrolled, with 20 each in BA LLB, BBA LLB and BS LLB honours and there will be 10 postgraduate students. He mentioned that the annual fee structure for the undergraduate and postgraduate programs is much lower than what private colleges and universities and other national universities charge.
Since the university is new and to attract applications from aspiring lawyers of the state, such outreach programmes will also be held across Meghalaya, he added.
The outreach programme was attended by High Court judges, Justice HS Thangkhiew and Justice W Diengdoh.
