Once approved, the programme will be offered in international and comparative law, corporate and commercial law, criminal and security law, family and social security law, constitutional and administrative law, and legal pedagogy and research.
Admissions will be on the basis of entrance tests. The university is planning to have an intake capacity of 30 seats at the beginning of the course.
This course, however, will be conducted in a very rigorous manner as compared to the regular LL.M case, to maintain academic quality and standards. The fees recommended by the university's board of studies for the course is Rs 50,000.
Delay in revaluation results:
Delay in declaration of revaluation results has forced nearly 6,500 law students of Mumbai University (MU) who took the winter exam to also appear for the supplementary exam that begins Wednesday.
Results of the law exam conducted in November 2012 were declared in February 2013. The same month, 6,500 students applied for revaluation.
Bombay High Court had directed MU on November 23, 2010, to declare revaluation results within 15 days of submission of applications. But the order seems to have fallen on deaf ears. Students claimed MU still takes two to three months to declare revaluation results, leaving them confused whether to take supplementary exams or not.
Students claimed MU still takes two to three months to declare revaluation results, leaving them confused whether to take supplementary exams or not. They claimed revaluation results are often declared after supplementary exams begin, resulting in loss of a year.
Naresh Chandra, pro-vice chancellor of MU, said, "We are making all efforts to declare the results before the supplementary exam."
