After a writ petition filed by one LLM aspirant challenging the validity of the ordinance that provide 80 per cent seats to LU law graduates, the High Court Lucknow bench has annulled the ordinance duly.

Moreover, the High Court bench headed by Justice DK Upadhyay also directed the university to scrape the ordinance by this academic session 2017-2018.

While the court asked the varsity to complete the current admission process, which is delayed due to the court’s interim direction at the earlier point of time, the teachers are anticipated to cooperate in finishing the course in order to hold the examinations as it has been scheduled.

More on the news:

  • In the writ petition filed by one LLM aspirant, the petitioner challenged the validity of the university ordinance that provides 80 per cent seat reservation only to LU law graduates
  • The petitioner, considering Supreme Court’s directives, had pleaded that only 50 per cent of reservation are permitted to the institution
  • The university defending its ordinance pleaded that their students who generally secured 70-75 per cent are unable to secure admission in other universities as national law universities and other universities including the private ones adopted grading system which rendered their students an edge over LU’s students
  • The High Court however dismissed LU’s plea and observed that, “No study appears to have been conducted by the university before framing the impugned ordinance, neither any such material has been supplied to conclude as to how in the absence of a grading system to evaluate LLB examination is resulting in irreparable disadvantage to Lucknow University law graduates,” as reported in TOI.
