A group of 35 students, selected from 500 applications, attended the four-week Future of India course, organised
Ambedkar University, Delhi approved a new undergraduate course in law and politics. Earlier, the University had received positive reviews of an inter-disciplinary postgraduate programme in law, politics and society.
Liang, a professor at The School of Law and Global Citizenship (SLGC) said, “The undergraduate course offers more foundational courses in law and political theory, progressing to interdisciplinary courses only in the final year of the three-year programme.”
Although there has been an increase in competition in higher education across disciplines, the data speak to a clear imbalance between the demand and supply of legal education. Dr Salil Mishra, dean of SLGC, clarified that the new Bachelor’s degree is not competing with traditional law courses.
Over 69,000 students sat for Common Law Admission Test (CLAT), which shows that the young students are much interested in continuing with law and politics as their career option.
