Faculty of Law of the Delhi University, in response to the petition filled for the introduction of one-year LLM course responded by stating that it does not have sufficient funds to introduce a new course besides already having 2-year LLM course. In a order released on February 27, the University responded saying, “We are not averse to introducing the one-year LLM programme”.
Earlier, after the petition was filled by Mohit Singh, a former student of Law from DU, Faculty of Law said that it is not against the idea of introducing one year LLM course in future but right now it does not have enough resources and proper infrastructure for the introduction of a new course.
Though Mohit Singh and other students have argued that if the faculty have funds for 2-year LLM then it can also introduce a year LLM course as the course has become a necessity and its absence leads to students ending up studying in different universities, including private ones.
In a generation where there is an urgent need of introducing newer courses in our curriculum,excuses pertinent to infrastructure and resources are posing as an impediment in the path of diversifying our education setup.
