The petition has challenged the 50% horizontal reservation for Delhi-based candidates on the ground that it is contrary to the statutory mandate of the National Law University Act, 2007. the petitioners have contended that the reservation policy would change the national character of NLU Delhi and reduce it to a regional day college.It is also argued that the quantum of reservation is excessive and unreasonable, with no rational nexus to the objectives that the statute aims to achieve.
