How Inclusive And Diverse Jamia Millia Islamia Is? – Jamia Diversity Census 2018-19 - Jamia Media

Inclusion and diversity need to be cultivated in Indian legal education. There is research showing top law schools, particularly NLUs, are elite and exclusive; the elusive islands of excellence are majorly populated by privileged students– the financially sound, the upper caste, the resident of big city and the child of educationally strong parents. Within that pool, the best performers possess a greater degree of such privileges. In this context, viewing Jamia Millia Islamia, a Muslim-minority Central University with 50% reservation for Muslims, is important for two reasons.
First, the sample size of Muslim students at NLSIU was three. In a way, the largest minority in India could not be studied. JMI, having 63.77% Muslims, can facilitate study of even intra-community inclusivity. Second, unlike the elite and meritorious NLSIU, Jamia is not a top law school and is dominated by middle- and low family income students. Comparison of both institutions’ student-bodies can help unearth a correlation between merit and socioeconomic factors. Jamia is significantly more diverse and inclusive than NLSIU on most counts. But the high performing students participating in international- and national-level moots and debates are far less (4.8% as opposed to 21.5%). The two reasons for conducting this study can foster discourse on inclusivity and diversity in education. Such research on education is scarce, pressing to be addressed.
