Foundation Stone Laid For Country’s 23 NLU At Uttarakhand

On March 2, 2019, the foundation stone of country’s 23rd National Law University was laid by Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat in Ranipokhari, Uttarakhand.

The National Law University Uttarakhand will be set up in Ranipokhari, 50 km from Dehradun at a cost of Rs 26 crore, and will span over 10 acres.

In June last year, while taking up a batch of petitions, the Uttarakhand High Court had directed the state government to set up the NLU within three months and to ensure that NLU’s first Academic Session begin by September 2018.

However, delay was caused in setting up the University and now after much delay the foundation was laid. Although it is not clear as to when the University will start operating.

Speaking at the occasion, the Chief Minister said that the university will not only be a hub of quality education in the state but will also help in the development of the nearby areas. “We hope that students from across the country will come here to study.”
