Although the law has not banned romantic relations between university teachers and students, they should not be encouraged. In my university there is a rule that states that markers are not allowed to have a 'conflict of interest' so if a professor is involved with a student then the professor cannot judge the student's work as it would be seen as a conflict of interest. In the US, universities like Harvard, Yale and UC Berkeley have similar rules that forbid faculty members from having relations with their students.
