The city’s high court has directed the University of Delhi to fill up the vacant seats across all categories in its LLB course. Also, a time limit of 2 weeks is given. The Delhi High court holds a view that it is unfair that the seats in a prestigious university like Delhi University are going to waste. Hence, despite lots of meritorious students wanting a chance to study under DU’s LLB course, seats are empty.

The Judge’s statement on vacant seats in Delhi University’s LLB course:
A petition was taken to the Delhi High Court by three LLB aspirants who had failed to get admissions. Thus, Justice Rekha Palli, stated that DU will have to consider all the eligible candidates for the vacant seats including the petitioners. Thus, they should be selected on a merit basis. Also, the varsity should ensure additional extra classes for the newly admitted students to catch up.
As per the Judge, the University of Delhi is a reputed and premier institution in imparting education. Thus, it is a dream of several students to study here. Hence, it would be unfair if candidates with merit are held back even though the seats lie vacant. The high court passes this order for DU on 3rd February 2022.
Petitioners have the zeal to study in DU LLB course:
As per the high court, the LLB aspirant petitioners have shown zeal and determination in clearing the entrance exams. So, keeping in view the impact of covid-19 and the constant disruption brought by it, no student should be denied any available opportunity.
The court highlighted DU’s unwillingness to fill the vacant seats. They said that December 31 being the last cutoff date was not acceptable when DU itself didn’t follow it.
