NLSF, KLCSU requests early declaration of LLB result

Dimapur, March 18 (MExN): The Nagaland Law Students’ Federation (NLSF) and the Kohima Law College Students’ Union (KLCSU) have called for immediate declaration of results of 2nd, 4th and 6th semester LLB in the current academic session.  In separate letters to the vice-chancellor, Nagaland University, Lumami, the Unions have urged the VC to give utmost attention to their appeals and that prompt reply be done through necessary action, rather than assurances or ignoring their pleas and added “we shall always strive to seek the rights of the students as endowed upon by the law”.
NLSF and KLCSU stated that in comparison with the preceding academic sessions, the university has delayed the declaration of result thereby causing anxiety and confusion to the students. Hence, they suggests that the declaration of result be timed in consonance with the All India Bar Exam bi annual schedules, so as to facilitate the new law Degree holders to appear the Bar exam with sufficient time for preparation. In addition to it, the unions felt that the declaration of LLB results for any semester in any session, should be published in local newspapers rather than directly sending mark sheets to the colleges or pasting the result in the University office notice board.
The unions also pointed out that the marks entered in the mark sheets, in the previous years were done by hand writing, which gives an apprehension that marks can be easily manipulated/forged. Moreover, it was also informed that many errors have been detected in the past mark sheets of the students for wrong entry of marks and names whereby causing a lot of hardship to the students to run after the University office for correction. The Unions thereby suggests the use of proper method which can be done either through computer typing or any such mechanical process that will remain permanent or which can’t be manipulated in any manner later.
Further, the NLSF said that law colleges in our state lack proper library facility, which hampers and vitiate the quality of education. “While a good library is the most vital element in any educational pursuit, in the case of professional course like LLB, standard Law books and journals are available only at an exorbitant price beyond the affordable means of average students. In this regard we expect the University to evolve a proper mechanism where colleges must have excellent library facilities by issuing strict guidelines or by providing better Law books and journals in the Universities libraries or through any other feasible scheme,” stated the union.
