Tripura is expected to have a national law university soon as a bill calling for its establishment will be tabled in the next session of the assembly, a senior state education department official said on Saturday.
Academic activities of the university are expected to be held from the Judicial Academy building in Tripura for the upcoming academic session. It will then be moved to a new building, he said. Tripura Law Minister, Minister Ratan Lal Nath has met with relevant officials to advance the plan to establish a fully-fledged Law University, the official said.
A committee comprised of state government officials, Tripura High Court judges and legal experts will be formed to suggest the appointment process for the Chancellor, Vice-Chancellor and faculty members. The panel will also finalize the courses to be offered, he said.
The state government wants to make it an institution of national importance to produce quality lawyers, he added. Tripura has a government law school with a capacity of 60 students.
