Yes, you read that right.
Amity Law School, Delhi has lost GGSIPU affiliation.
From this year onwards there will be no admissions via the GGSIPU Law Common Entrance Test in Amity Law School, Delhi.
For those of you who aren’t aware, GGSIPU is a leading University in Delhi which offers various professional courses for undergraduates, some of them which even Delhi University doesn’t offer (undergrad law being one of them). ALS, Delhi was always regarded as one of the best law colleges under GGSIPU and moreover one of the best law schools in the country.
It might be a surprise for outsiders but the students of ALSD had been hearing the de-affiliation rumours since almost 1.5 years. It’s like the students’ worst nightmare has now come true. Something every student was dreading all along.
Half the students are wondering about the WHYS & HOWS while the other half can’t help but stress over how it is going to reflect on their international LLM applications.
The official notice that was uploaded on the website of the college was shared across different social media platforms immediately after. The decision unleashed the worst of the worse that Amity, IPU was witnessing since last 1.5 years.
Students of ALS, Delhi believe it is a chain of events that led to this extreme step. All of this started when a student of the college committed suicide, protests for justice followed. Finally, the Dean and De-facto Dean resigned.
Inspite of all this, attendance norms continued to be vague which invited more trouble as a good number of students filed cases against the college in court of law. If the rumours are to be believed it is because of this reason that Amity Law School, Delhi was de-affiliated.
Now, such changes don’t work retrospectively. Meaning: the enrolled batches will still get the degree they were promised at the time of admissions.
So, the consequences of this de-affiliation may be manifold but it doesn’t affect the fee structure or the degree of students who are already enrolled in previous batches.
Now, whether this de-affiliation will bring campus change and staff change along with is something we’ll have to wait to find out.
What do you think about this extreme step? Let us know in the comments below.
