A national law university will be established in Tripura soon. In addition to a government law college in Agartala, which currently has a capacity of 60 students per batch, the national law university will be established. According to sources, the University will operate from the Tripura Judicial Academy building for the next academic session if the Bill is passed, and will then be relocated to a new building.
Minister of Law Ratan Lal Nath of Tripura met with officials to advance the plan to establish a full-fledged NLU. The process for appointing the Chancellor, Vice-Chancellor, and faculty members will be suggested by a committee made up of representatives from the state government, judges from the Tripura High Court, and legal experts.
The courses that will be offered will also be finalised by this panel. Common-Law Admission Test (CLAT) will be used to admit students to the university.
The state-run law college, which was founded in 1986, offers a five-year integrated bachelor of law degree. The state government had previously approved the hiring of 40 assistant professors for the state’s general degree colleges and said that more proposals for college faculty hiring were in the works. Within the next academic year, an English-medium college is expected to open.
If the Bill is approved, the University of Tripura will become the country’s 24th National Law University.
