Bachelor's degree must for law courses

This was stated in the objections filed by the Bar Council of India in the High Court regarding the criteria for admissions to three and five-year law courses.

Ravi Teja and 30 others had approached the High Court challenging the circular issued by the Karnataka State Law University imposing certain conditions for admissions to both three and five-year law courses.

The petitioners had obtained their postgraduate degree from open universities, after completing diploma. However, the rules laid down by the Law University made it clear that such a PG degree from open university was not acceptable for admissions to the law courses under BCI rules.

The petitioners had also challenged the upper age limit set for the law courses, which is 30 years for three-year course and 20 years for five-year course.

Registrar Karnataka State Law University Vijaykumar Gogi was present in the court during the hearing was directed by the High Court to obtain the permission of the syndicate and academic council before implementing the rules. The matter was adjourned.
