Indo-Italian tie up to promote academic research

The Ram Manohar Lohia National Law University (RMLNLU) in Lucknow will tie up with the University of Naples, Italy, to promote academic research, especially in the field of international law. 'RMLNU and the University of Naples will enter into an agreement to start an exchange programme for the academic staff and researchers in compliance with the relevant laws of two countries,' RMLNLU Vice-chancellor Balraj Chauhan said on Thursday.

'The exchange programme will help our teachers and students to have first-hand knowledge of international law,' he added. According to university officials, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the two institutes will be signed within a week. The MoU will enable students and teachers to undertake joint research projects which in turn will enhance their respective curricula, they said.
