Punjab University Law College semester system

PU students demanded implementation of semester system
Lahore, Jan 15: A large number of students from the Punjab University Law College on Thursday, staging a demonstration, demanded implementation of semester system and 40 percent aggregate system for examinations in the college.

The demo was staged outside the PU New Campus on Canal Road which created great traffic mess on different adjoining roads. The protesting students said unlike other departments of the university the Law College students were required to get 45 percent aggregate to pass the exam instead of 40 percent aggregate. They also protested the mode of exam, saying unlike many other departments the PU Law College students had to sit in the annual exams.

They demanded the PU authorities bring the aggregate requirement down to 40 percent besides introduction of semester based examinations in the college.

Meanwhile, Punjab University Law College In-charge Principal Shahzia Naureen Qureshi and some faculty members held a press conference at PU executive club over the issue and termed the students' demands unjustified.

The in-charge principal told the media that both the demands were against the interest of the students' community, adding LLB was a professional degree which was followed by Pakistan Bar Council rules and regulations.

She added on demand of the bar council and teachers, the semester system was eliminated from the Law College and according to bar council rules, 45 percent aggregate was a must to issue licence to a law graduate for practice.

She said the Bar Council was a licensing authority of the lawyers and the syllabus and rules were set in after the consultation with the bar council. She said if the bar council approves 40 percent aggregate to pass LLB then PU would also approve it.

Ms Qureshi further said in the light of decisions taken by the PU Academic Council and Syndicate, the annual system was implemented in the Law College in the best interest of the students.

She said that another reason for implementing annual system was that in all affiliated colleges the annual system was in practice therefore the PU was establishing uniform education system in the discipline of law.

"Pakistan and India both follow British system in teaching law education and there is annual system of teaching law in Britain", she claimed.

Replying to a question, Prof Samee Ozair said students had blocked the road for traffic but after successful negotiations the road was opened for the traffic. He said the students were like their own children and administration was taking all decisions in the best interest of the students.
