TN Establishment of Private Law Colleges (Prohibition) Bill, 2014 introduced in Assembly

Jul 31, 2014 15:15 IST

State Government of Tamil Nadu on 30 July 2014 introduced Tamil Nadu Establishment of Private Law Colleges (Prohibition) Bill, 2014 in the Legislative Assembly. The Bill seeks prohibition of establishment of private law colleges in the state. This Bill will become an Act after being enacted and then will also be into force with immediate effect.

The decision was taken as the private trusts and societies failed to provide legal education at affordable cost to the socially and economically sections. They are also unable to run the colleges successfully.


Apart from this, the Bill also mentions that the state government has made a policy decision to establish adequate number of government-run law colleges in the State. These government-run colleges will provide legal education at an affordable cost and will be developed in a phased manner.

The Bill was introduced in the State Assembly by the Minister for Law and Justice SP Velumani. At present, Tamil Nadu has only 12 law colleges, of which 7 are run by state government.
