* Sri Lanka's Law College postpones registration of students following controversy
Tue, Jan 15, 2013, 11:23 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 15, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Law College has decided to postpone the registration of the new batch of students for 2013 following a controversy over the law entrance examination paper.

The registration of the new batch of students earlier was to take place today. However, the registration has been postponed by a week.

This is the second occasion within two weeks the registration of Law College students has been postponed. The registration was to initially take place on the 8th.

Law Entrance Students' Union held a protest march outside the Law College over alleged irregularities in the law entrance exam and the registration.

The students union has also lodged a complaint with the Human Rights Commission (HRC) claiming the Examinations Department had failed to take any action to re-evaluate the law entrance exam papers and inquire into the irregularities.

The students say the law entrance results had shown that preference had been given to some ethnic groups over others.

According to the Young Lawyers' Association of Sri Lanka out of 705 Tamil medium students who took the law exam 133 students have received entry while only 154 students have been selected from a total of 6,295 who took the exam in the Sinhala medium. Also the top marks have been earned by the Muslim students.
