The final year students of Campus Law Centre, Faculty of Law at Delhi University have addressed a letter to the judges of the Delhi High Court and the University administration, urging them to cancel the Open Book Examinations that are scheduled to be held during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The students have urged the University to rectify the anomalies noted in the letter and create a proper plan for holding examinations.

Responding to the University’s decision to conduct Open Book Examinations (OBE), which was conveyed by the University’s Dean of Examination to a Division Bench of the Delhi High Court yesterday, the Campus Law Centre Students’ Union 2019-20 has remarked that,

"It is unfortunate that our alma-mater has shown scant regard for our welfare and our prospects in the future. This is borne out by the inability of its administration to create a proper plan for holding our examinations despite the UGC exhorting universities to make preparations way back on 29.4.2020."
