In the recent press release of 8th January 2021, the Governing body of the Consortium of NLUs has come up with a few conditions to take into account before reopening the Universities in January 2021. It has held meetings on 23rd December 2020 and 8th January 2021 on the same subject-matter. They are primarily based on the distinction between how National Law Universities and State Universities are run

Conditions 

The first condition is about the diversity present in the NLU campusesNLUs consist of students from different parts of the country who have varied experiences related to COVID-19. So, if they assemble together, it can end up aggravating the already sensitive situation prevalent due to the pandemic. 

On top of that, the dense and close-packed infrastructure will not allow for proper medical sanitation facilities. It will also not be practically attainable to maintain prescribed physical distance inside the cramped campus.

Also, A NLUs are expected to follow the medical protocols of Residential Universities given the Central and State GovernmentsThese protocols include providing separate dining and toilet facilities for the students. But as they are built for a smaller number of students, they could not conduct classes while following up with the necessary protocols. 

Current Position 

The Consortium concluded that the Universities will reopen only after the commencement of universal vaccination of the students, faculty, and staff members. These would significantly make it safer and reduce the chance of spread of COVID-19 inside the Universities. There is a possibility of opening the Universities after February 2021 in phases considering the local conditions. 

The Consortium of NLUs will inform its final decision regarding Reopening the Universities after assessing the post-February circumstances and will review it accordingly. So do keep an eye on their official website for further information and notifications.
