The Plzen law faculty which unexpectedly received an extended 4-year lease on life from Education Minister Josef Dobeš on Friday says it will not take in new students without getting a green light from the ministry. The faculty’s right to take in new students was put on hold last year as it awaited the verdict of the Czech Accreditation Commission regarding its future. However after the Accreditation Commission refused to extend the faculty’s accreditation past this autumn, the education minister unexpectedly countered the order, extending the law faculty’s undergraduate programme until 2016 in order to give some 1800 students the chance to finish their education at their alma mater. The decision has come under fire from lawyers and the head of the Accreditation Commission Vladimíra Dvořáková said she would take the matter to court.
