Madras high court
CHENNAI: Evidence that individuals who haven’t even stepped indoors regular college or school should not permitted to combine law classes, the Madras high court has requested the Bar Council of India to amend its rules so. It needs to be ensured that applicants who have finished college and school education through regular manner alone are qualified for admission, stated Justice N Anand Venkatesh.
“In the absence of the same, men who haven’t gone into regular college or school will enter a law school for the first time in their lifetime which might not be a healthy tendency to keep up the standard of schooling in lawenforcement. BCI should seriously consider this proposal into account and make necessary modifications to this rule,” Justice Anand Venkatesh said.
The court made the observation when disposing of a plea moved by M Krishnakumar who had been denied entrance to LLB from the Tamil Nadu Dr Ambedkar Law University on the floor he finished his school and college education through distance education.
Determined by a complete bench conclusion of this court, counsel for the petitioner R Jayaprakash filed that petitioner is qualified to be considered for three-year LLB class, although he’s finished his SSLC, Plus 2 and undergraduate classes through distance education style. He depended upon proviso under Rule 5 of the Bar council of India Rules, to substantiate his situation.
precisely the same, urge V Vasanthakumar for the college claimed that such a candidate doesn’t match the minimum requirement, because at no point the candidate has experienced the normal path.
“consequently, the college was correct in rejecting the candidature of this petitioner and it needs no hindrance,” Vasanthakumar explained.
Recording the admissions, Justice Anand Venkatesh stated:”This court can comprehend the concern expressed from the counselor the university into the result that a candidate that has undergone instruction through distance education and that hasn’t experienced routine course at any time period, is knocking the doors of the court asserting himself to become eligible to be considered for its 3-year law program.”
However, the principle doesn’t appear to coordinate with the issue expressed. The principle itself provides for an exclusion to experience instruction through distance/correspondence mode. Until this principle is in force, a candidate that fulfills the requirements of the rule might need to be considered for entrance to the program, the judge stated.
Holding the petitioner is qualified for entry to LLB at the upcoming academic year when he participates in the admission procedure, the judge stated:”The BCI can take a cue from this decision and make necessary modifications to the rule”
