President Ranil Wickremesinghe has said that government-owned land would be allocated for enhancing facilities of Sri Lanka Law College.
He made the announcement during a deliberation held at the parliamentary complex yesterday (06).
Sri Lanka Law College celebrates its 150th anniversary in 2024.
Highlighting the historical significance of Sri Lanka Law College, president Wickremesinghe emphasized its noteworthy contribution, having produced three presidents.
Minister Prasanna Ranatunga said a plot of land owned by the Urban Development Authority will be provided to Sri Lanka Law College in accordance with the presidential directive.
President Wickremesinghe directed the relevant authorities to promptly formulate plans for the immediate enhancement of the Law College’s facilities.
In the initial phase, a 40-perch plot will be allocated, with the remainder to be provided as per the requirements outlined in the comprehensive plan, following consultations with the Ministry of Justice.
Dr. Atula Pathinayake, the Principal of the Law College, expressed gratitude during the event.
He noted that in the school’s 150-year history, no land had been allocated to improve student facilities.
He thanked president Wickremesinghe for the special attention given to this matter.
