* Student intake at Sri Lanka's Law College reduced to maintain standards
Thu, Mar 6, 2014, 12:00 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 06, Colombo: Justice Minister of Sri Lanka Rauf Hakeem has said that the student intake at the Sri Lanka Law College has been reduced due to the lack of facilities and in order to maintain the standard of education offered by the College.

Hakeem has told parliament that while the cut off mark for enrolment to the College in 2014 has been decided as 66, which enables the enrolment of 177 students, the standard of education cannot be maintained if the number of students enrolled exceeds a certain limit.

"Commissioner General of Examinations, M.J.M. Pushpakumara, issued the cut off mark after the Law Entrance Exam. Based on this cut off mark, the Incorporated Legal Council decided on the number of students to be enrolled," the Minister told the House.

"If students are enrolled according to the cut off mark 65, there will be more students entering the Law College, which will exceed the limit. Therefore, the Law College will have to face problems with regard to facilities," Hakeem has added.

He has further observed that the Incorporated Legal Council enrolled 177 students, in order to protect the quality of the legal education provided by the Law College.

He has further explained that the Law College had last year enrolled 551 students, which is an addition of 220 students.

"Accordingly, a total of 700 students received enrolments last year. This caused inconveniences to the Law College. The college had to split the students into two batches, in order to conduct lectures. Lectures are being conducted in the morning and evening. This created difficulties to the college," Hakeem has said.
