N Chandrababu Naidu, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister recently appealed to the Chief Justice of India, Ranjan Gogoi to start Nalsar University in Amaravati. He is of the opinion that the new state is in dire need of a premium law university to cater to the needs of the legal professionals. He said he will offer the necessary land, infrastructure and other things required for setting up of the university. He stated that the state government is willing to offer any facility for the law university.
Naidu further said that litigation is the biggest hurdle when it comes to development and he wants to strive towards minimizing litigation for the larger interest of the state development. Naidu referred to the teething problems of the state and said that the support staff of the High Court judicature will be given free accommodation and other facilities. The Nalsar University of Law, officially known as the National Academy of Legal Studies and Research (NALSAR) is a legal studies institute situated in Shamirpet, Hyderabad.
