New Delhi, Apr 22: In what could bring cheers to Law aspirants, Minister of State for Human Resource Development D Purandeswari on Wednesday, Apr 22, said that a post-graduate degree in law is likely to become a one-year course against the present two years duration.

"A proposal to restructure the existing post-graduate programme in law from that of two years duration to a one-year duration programme with selectivity in admission to attract the brightest graduates in law towards this programme is under consideration with the University Grants Commission (UGC)," Purandeswari told the Lok Sabha.

"The proposal would be considered in respect of other post-graduate programmes of study which are amenable to restructuring by reducing the time duration of the programme for award of degree without compromising on the quality of education," she added.
