"A proposal for a building in the north campus for the three centres of Law faculty has been submitted before the High Court," DU's Media Cordinator and Joint Dean of Students' Welfare Malay Neerav said.

"According to the proposal, the three law centres namely Campus Law Centre, Law Centre-I and Law Centre-II are proposed to be shifted to a new building which is adjacent to the Faculty of Law in the north campus itself, " he said.

According to the Dean, Law Faculty, Ashwani Kumar Bansal, "The building is still under construction, but 75 per cent of the said building is ready and we have been assured that the three centres will be accomodated in the new premises from the next academic session."

The law faculty was in the news recently when the Bar Council of India, the apex regulatory body for legal education and the legal profession in India, had decided to derecognise DU's law course after it failed to seek timely extension of the affiliation of its three centres.

"We have applied for the extension and the issue will be sorted out soon. We have already assured our students that prospects of practising as advocates would not be hampered," Bansal said.

Vice Chancellor Dinesh Singh also echoed his views saying, "The issue was blown out of proportion and I have been told that it will be sorted soon."

Meanwhile, a seven member team from the BCI visited the Law faculty campus today for an inspection.

Members of the Delhi University Students' Union (DUSU) presented a memorandum to the team demanding better infrastructure for the institution.

Among the DU law faculty alumnus are the likes of Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, former HRD minister Kapil Sibal, Supreme Court Judge Rohinton Nariman, former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati and former Chhattisgarh chief minister Ajit Jogi.
