The students of law were stumped with the fourth merit list put up by the Mumbai University, Department of Law for the admission in the LLM course for the first-year on Tuesday. Earlier to this month, the third merit list was out for admissions and the course for the first semester has been enclosed in the last week and adding to the worst scenario, the university has scheduled the examination on January 15, 2018, for the first semester of LLM.
After the university commenced owing of court cases late, the LLM university admission was observed to be highly controversial this year 2017. Students seeking for their much-delayed LLB result had to move to court while requesting for extra time to fill the admission forms of LLM. The selection process after the First merit list was put on in October’s second week was further criticized by the students while the third list was equally criticized that was put on in November’s last week.
Commenting on the fourth merit list, a criminology student questions that the admissions are still open with minimum 60 students’ name flashed on the list while the examination dates are out. The university expects the students to complete all the required formalities in the next two days. The lectures for the course just began before a month. The students are trying to postpone the examination with the help of maximum signature of a plea.
A student from the law department comments that LLM has 25 marks for every four questions, unlike the LLB course. Also, the delay in admission merit list and the result of LLB students was not the fault of the students extends his explanation while the officials remained unavailable to spoke on the issue.
