2. University of Allahabad
The history of the University of Allahabad dates back to the days of the ascendency
of the Raj in India. It was established on September 23rd, 1887 by the Act XVIII
of the then Central legislature and became the fourth University to be established
in the country after Calcutta, Bombay and Madras. Its first entrance examination
was held in March 1889. In 1904 the Indian Universities Act was passed which limited
its jurisdiction to the United Provinces of Agra and Awadh, Central Provinces including
Berar, Ajmer, Mewar and most of the states of Rajputana and Central India agencies.
Between 1887 and 1927 at least thirty-eight different institutions and colleges
of this region were affiliated to the Allahabad University. With the promulgation
of the Allahabad University Act 1921, the Muir Central College lost its independent
existence. Between 1922-27 the University had its internal and external wings which
were subsequently separated from the University to give the latter a purely unitary
and residential character. The University has been accorded Central University Status
in 2005 by an Act of Parliament.
From the Raj to the Republic the University of Allahabad has continuously occupied
a place of pride in the community of the institutions of higher education in the
country and abroad. Because of its contribution in various areas of knowledge, the
University won the distinction of being known as ‘the Oxford of the East’. The itself
speaks volumes for the prestige and honour the University of Allahabad has enjoyed
nationally as well as internationally. The University has directly and indirectly
made significant contributions to the freedom struggle. Its teachers and students
galvanized the people participation in movements against the foreign rule.
3. Department of Law
3.1. A Brief History
With the establishment of the High Court at Allahabad in 1866, need was felt for
advocates for practicing in the High Court and the District Courts. The minimum
requirement for an advocates was Barrister qualification from England or Bachelor
of Laws degree after graduation from Calcutta University. As such teaching of laws
was commenced in Muir Central College of Allahabad, affiliated to Calcutta University
(Estb. 1857), on December 31st, 1872 with 39 students in English Section and 10
in Urdu Section When in 1887 Allahabad University was established as a teaching-cum-affiliating
University, the Law Department also obtained a raised stature accordingly. Hon’ble
Justice D. Straight was appointed the first president of Law Department in 1890.
By an order of the Governor in Council of United Provinces, the Department of Legal
Studies became a separate single Department Faculty of the University alongwith
the Faculties of Arts. Science and Commerce in the Muir College campus of the University.
Under the Indian University Act of 1904, the posts of Professor, Reader and Lecturer
were recognized for the University. The Law Department functioned in Muir College
from 1872 onwards till the new building of immense architectural beauty was constructed
for the Law Faculty around 1910, adjacent to Senate house on the northern side by
the donations provided by the Oudh Bar Association. However, till 1921 the Law Department
functioned with advocates as part-time teachers holding all the three cadres. In
1921, when the University was re-organized as a residential University by an Act
of the United Province of British India Professor Weir, a distinguished jurist,
became first Head of Law Department. In 1936 two full-time posts of Reader were
created on which Prof. K.K. Bhattacharya, LLM (London) and Prof. K.R.R. Sastri,
ML (Madras) were appointed. Professor K.K. Bhattacharya became first fulltime Professor
in Law Department in 1949.
On account of shortage of accommodation there was difficulty in holding of tutorials
in LLB Classes in the expansion of the Law Library. So the Law Department was shifted
to the new building which was constructed by UGC grants in the Chatham Lines Campus
of which Hon’ble Mr. A.K. Sen, the then Law Minister of India, had laid the foundation
stone in 1965. The transfer of Law Department to the new building was completed
in early 1980s.
There had been intimate relationship between the High Court and the Department when
part-time professor and part-time Reader were allowed to be appointed from High
Court Bar. Shri A.P. Dube, Bar-at-Law, an eminent advocate was the last part-time
Professor and Head when in 1949 Professor K.K. Bhattacharya became the first full-time
Professor and Head of the Law Department. The Law Department continues to have four
posts of part-time Lecturers. It is notable that Sir Tej Bahadur Sapru, Pandit Moti
Lal Nehru, Sir Sundar Lal, Dr. Kailash Nath Katju had been part-time teachers in
the Law Department. Before they became judges, Justice Iqbal Ahmad, Justice Wali
Ullah Justice P.N. Sapru M.H. Beg, Justice M.N. Shukla had been part time teachers
of Law Department. Two Judges of High Court have consistently been members each
of Board of Studies and faculty Board of Law.
The Law Department has the honour of producing legal personalities which have had
their role not only in the field of Law but also in the entire life on the nation.
A few names like Sir Tej Bahadur Sapru. Dr. Kailash Nath Katju and Justice Wali
Ullah Who had obtained LL.D. from the Law Department as regular candidates may be
mentioned. Chief Justice Das of the Supreme Court of India had been awarded LL.D.
(Honours) in 1960. Prof. K.K. Bhattacharya. Deen & Head of Law Department was nominated
as MP by the President of India to the Federal Unicameral Parliament of India under
the Constitution of India in 1950.
