PU Law College turns 145 years old
Lahore: The Law College, a constituent college of the Punjab University (PU), the oldest seat of learning dedicated to the promotion of sound and enlightened study of law in the sub-continent has turned 145 years old. The newly appointed first lady Principal Prof Dr.Shazia Qureshi tracing the history of the historic college while talking to APP here Sunday said that the law college is older than the university.
The law classes were started by the Anjuman-i-Punjab in 1868 which was later taken over by the Punjab University in 1870. She said that the course of study extended over two years and instructions were given in two separate classes, one in English and other in Vernacular. No test was laid down for admission and there was no examinations as certificates awarded by the college possessed little value.
The Punjab Chief Court held its own examinations for leadership and admission to the Bar. In 1873 rules were framed requiring the passing of entrance examination of some university or the PU college as condition for admission to the law classes. The following year, the judges of the Chief Court conceded to the Punjab University Law College, the privilege for holding the leadership examination. It was laid down that with the exception of special cases allowed by the Chief Court, no one would be admitted to the law examination without having passed entrance examination or its equivalent.

Allegations against PU VC grave: court
Lahore: Hearing a petition against Punjab University Vice Chancellor, the Lahore High Court on Monday expressed concern over allegations of harassment on the varsity's head.
Justice Farrukh Irfan Khan observed that status of a teacher was highly respectable but the allegations against Dr Mujahid Kamran were grave and could not be tolerated. A law college lecturer Khujista Rehan had filed a petition and accused the vice chancellor of extending sexual harassment. Petitioner's counsel argued that his client was being victimised by university's authorities for raising voice against the VC. He said the authorities at the behest of Dr Kamran initiated several 'fake' inquiries against the petitioner. He pointed out that the matter was pending before the PU syndicate but the vice chancellor being its chairman had been influencing its proceedings. The counsel asked the court to suspend the VC till finalisation of inquiry. On the other side, the university's counsel defended the charges and said the petitioner was herself involved in threatening director sports. He also presented record of telephonic conversation between Khujista Rehan and the director sports. The news
