Difficulty In Filtering Non-serious Law Students In Delhi University
It seems that several students are blocking the LLB seats in the Delhi University, and A Delhi High Court has said it is challenging to filter such students who engage in the act. The reason for this is that it is difficult to differentiate serious students from non-serious ones.
The issue was brought to the court by a second-year law student of the university who alleged that close to 700 seats are wasted every academic calendar by students to take advantage of the admission for personal purposes.
The sitting Justices S Ravindra Bhat and A K Chawla said students that have gotten impressive marks can easily book their seats.
"If the students see a more thriving opportunity, then they will most likely move and as such the seat is left empty all through the calendar year," it said.
"We don't want to micromanage the universities; they have their mode of operation. However, you can meet the university and let them know about your view," it added.
The sitting court also mentioned that "engaging the court in these issues, is dangerous, and shouldn't be done again."
The sitting court said it is difficult to filter such students who engage in the act. The reason for this is that it is difficult to differentiate serious students from non-serious ones.
Seeing the stance of the court, the petitioner, withdrew his plea. But the petitioner still insisted that 30 per cent of LLB seats in the Delhi University are completely wasted annually.
The petitioner was Subhash Vijayan. He was seeking a sought of direction from the university along with the Faculty, and Bar Council to take a certain admission fee from studies taking admission into the course.
The petitioner also alleged that the current examination system was depleting the talents of students. He said that the curriculum was outdated and predictable.
The petition claimed that a bulk of the students did not read to understand but just to pass their respective examinations. The petitioner also claimed that students only used guidebooks rather than read case materials.
