Nirma University's law institute  limits seats

Limiting the seats is a decision taken with aim to provide quality education and to pay individual attention to every student, says, Law institute dean, Nirma University.

Nirma University has consolidated the number of seats for its law courses. The total intake has been reduced from 240 to 180 students to the Institute of Law, which has four divisions for its three courses.

According to sources, the decision of seat consolidation has been taken to provide quality education to the students. A similar seat matrix will be applicable to the Institute of Architecture which is yet to be launched.

The decision has been appreciated by the faculty members who believe this would enable them to concentrate on each student and improve the quality of education.

Purvi Pokhariyal, Director and Dean of the Institute of Law confirmed the consolidation of seats in order to provide better quality education and to focus on each student.

Dr Pokhariyal said, the institute has been finding it difficult to pay personalised attention to each student. She added, "We ensured that the quality of education does not suffer. But the fact that they were not being able to focus on each and every student bothered the faculty members. Even during interactions and viva, it was difficult to pay quality attention to each student. This raised our concern."

"We want to keep a healthy ratio of students and faculty members. Currently there is a dearth of good law faculty as not many law experts choose to join academia," she said.

Officials also explained that, seat will could be further consolidated, if needed, in the next academic year. The Institute of Architecture which begins its first batch this academic year has also decided to admit fewer students than it has approval for.

Director of Institute of Architecture, Utpal Sharma, says, "We were given the permission to have an intake number of 80 but we have decided to limit the seats to 40 so that we can concentrate on quality education."

Director of Nirma University Anup Singh says, these decisions have been made after a lot of deliberation.

Singh added, "There is a dearth of good faculty members in law education and personalised attention was missing. Also, we wanted to ensure that the CLAT scores were not compromised."

Last year, the cut-off CLAT score was 103 which during the admission process went further down to 98. This year the cut-off is 108.75.
