CHENNAI: The State government has argued before the Madras High Court that there is nothing wrong in shifting the Dr Ambedkar Government Law College away from the Madras high court premises as this was true of all top law colleges in the country. The government said all these colleges were located far away from the respective high courts.

Further, the government argued that the rights of students were not being violated by shifting the college and that when that was the case, they could not seek such a remedy.

“The topmost college, National Law School University, Bengaluru, is two hours away from the Karnataka HC, so is NALSAR in Hyderabad,” Advocate-General Vijay Narayan said while opposing pleas seeking to stall the move to shift Dr Ambedkar Government Law College,to Kancheepuram and Tiruvallur.

While he acknowledged that shifting the college would cause inconvenience, he said there was better infrastructure in the new campuses. The future of legal education must be kept in mind. He added that nothing except the location had changed.

Senior counsel R Vaigai said the nearest bus stop for the campus at Kancheepuram was 3.5 km away, and railway station was 14 km away.
