Dimapur, Oct. 21 (EMN): Students pursuing law studies are urging the government of Nagaland to establish a government or a public law college in the state due to the reason that students, especially those from weaker economic backgrounds or far-flung locations, are facing hardships in pursuing law studies.
Members of the Nagaland Law Students’ Federation (NLSF) are said to have met with the minister for Higher and Technical Education, Temjen Imna Along, on October 18 in Kohima to discuss ‘long pending demands’ of the students’ group, the press release stated.

A press release from the NLSF that was issued to the media on Monday stated that a representation was submitted to the minister. The organisation stated its demand for the establishment a government or a public law college in Nagaland.

The NLSF stated that the federation had been appealing to the authorities of the state government for the past many years to establish a government or public law college in Nagaland but “they are yet to receive any positive response from the same,” the press release stated.

‘In view of the stated situation, without a government law college in the state, the students’ community in the state especially those from weaker economic backgrounds or far-flung locations are facing much hardship in pursuing law studies in the state,’ the organisation stated.

‘Establishing a public law college in the state would not only serve the interest of the students’ community in general and the law students in particular but will also be a great sign of concern and progress in favour of the government of the day.’

The press release stated that the minister assured the federation that the issue may be discussed in the Nagaland assembly on priority to set up a government law college in the state at the earliest.
