NEW DELHI: The National Law School of India University (NLSIU) awarded 43 gold medals to 20 graduating students during its 31st convocation 2023. Among awardees were two Bachelor of Arts and Laws (Honours) graduates Jwalika Balaji and Vidisha Singh who bagged six gold medals each. A total of 1,699 students graduated on the day, including 1,490 students from two batches of the university’s online and hybrid professional and continuing education (PACE) programmes.
During the event, NLSIU announced a series of academic initiatives, including a new research policy, joint degree programmes with leading foreign universities and recommencement of the admissions for international students.
Professor Sudhir Krishnaswam, vice- chancellor addressed the students and said, "The University has now implemented a new research policy to promote faculty involvement in joint research initiatives and democratise leadership of University Centres and Chairs. We are optimistic that these fresh beginnings will snowball into a quantum rise in research output at the University by allocating University resources to supporting specific faculty, Chairs, and Centres.
Krishnaswam also emphasised that the institution's governing bodies had decided to restart admitting international students to its academic programmes; second, to develop twinning, dual, and joint degree programmes with top universities worldwide; and third, to establish close research alliances with a few universities that would help advance the creation of new and valuable knowledge in a variety of fields.
Fourteen best performing students across the two batches in each of the Post Graduate Diploma programs were awarded certificates for their achievements. The medal winners credited the NLSIU for making them confident and providing a good community for support.
