The Bar Council of India (BCI) has constituted a high-level committee to decide on the method of evaluation/exams for LLB Students.
This has come as several students had written to the BCI saying that students should be promoted on the basis of 50% marks from internal assessments and 50% from previous performance. Prof. (Dr.) Vandana, Dean of Faculty of Law, Delhi University also sent an email to BCI asking them about the guidelines which would apply for conducting exams at the Delhi University.
The Committee will be chaired by Hon’ble Mr. Justice Govind Mathur, former Chief Justice of Allahabad High Court, and would consist of 12 members who would be noted academicians or Vice-Chancellors.
This Committee will deliberate upon the mode to promote intermediate semester law students.
The notification also mentions that till now BCI had refrained from issuing guidelines for exams as its previous guidelines were challenged in courts as universities wished to have the liberty to decide for themselves.
