NLSF appeals for separate HC for State

Nagaland News

DIMAPUR, NOVEMBER 12: The Nagaland Law Students’ Federation (NLSF) has appealed to the State Government to establish a separate High Court for the State of Nagaland, Government Law College and Directorate of Prosecution under Section 25 A CrPC in Nagaland.

In a statement issued here, the NLSF stated that there are three law colleges in Nagaland recognized by the Bar Council of India ~ Kohima Law College, Mokokchung Law College and City Law College.
The Federation said education in Law in State law colleges are mostly pursued by those students who could afford the course at the minimal fee and within the State. To enable the interested students to avail education in law, the State Law Colleges are charging fee at the lowest as compared to the high and well settled Law Colleges outside the State, it added.
However, it said many students in the State who wished to pursue law are unable to afford due to economic reasons. In this regard, establishing a public Law college in the State would not only serve the interest of the students community in general and Law students in particular but would also be a sign of great progress in favour of the State, the Federation stated.
The NSLF lamented that despite repeated appeals in the past decades in the nature of Representation, Memorandum, peaceful dharna, etc., to the concerned authorities of the State to set up a Government Law college, no positive step has been taken till date.
The lackadaisical attitude towards the Law students of the State by the State has proved to be the most profound show of negligence, the NSLF said.

The Federation further stated that on October 2, 2018 when the Centre approved proposals for setting up two colleges for advance studies, an Engineering College and a multi-professional College (law, management and music technology) in Nagaland, the NLSF was relieved that soon there will be a Government Law College in the State. However, it had only proved to be the most profound show of negligence by the State even after lapse of 3 years, the Federation said adding due importance of the subject of law priority must be given at par with other professional studies.
