Chanakya National Law University & NOU is going to offer new courses

PATNA: Chanakya National Law University(CNLU) is all set to expand its academic operations by introducing a number of diploma and certificate courses this year.

The university, which will be admitting students to the five-year integrated LLB course on the basis of combined law admission test from July 12 against 140 seats, including 20 seats reserved for NRIs, will also introduce diploma and certificate courses on cyberlaw, disaster management, humanitarian law, intellectual property right, alternative disputes resolution, public administration and administrative law later this year, according to CNLU registrar S P Singh.

He said hostel facilities are provided to all the students admitted to CNLU. A new library building has been constructed at a cost of Rs five crore and books worth Rs 1.5 crore already purchased. The new library would become functional within a month.

Though not a single case of ragging has been reported from the campus during the last five years, the university has constituted an anti-ragging squad as a preventive measure. The squad consists of senior faculty members and a representative of the Patna district administration.

As for the placement of its first batch of passouts, Singh said 60% of them have been absorbed in reputed organizations. Some more students are likely to be absorbed as the campus placement is still going on, he said.

Meanwhile, Nalanda Open University (NOU) is going to introduce as many as eight job-oriented courses from the current academic session. Admission to these courses will begin from July 12, saidNOU registrar S P Sinha.

The new courses are three-year Bachelor of Business Administration, BA in Education, Bachelor ofJournalism and Mass Communications, Bachelor in Public Administration and six-month certificate courses in Artificial Insemination and Minor Veterinary Services, Interior Decoration and Computer Networking Administration.
