BCI chairman wields the whip on slouchy law schools. Sets tasks and deadline.
BCI asks law schools to fall in line
- Bar Council of India (BCI) asks 930 law colleges to either conform to set standards or be barred from admitting students post 2011.
- BCI has directed colleges to start paying university Grants Commission approved pay-scale, to attract more talented faculty.
- Also, law schools ordered to revise educational curriculum as per BCI prescribed modern standards.
- BCI chairman Mr Subramaniam speaking on concept of a mandatory entrance test before being permitted to practice in courts: “This entrance test is going to be a great homogenising effect. If a student from a rural law college passes this entrance test and qualifies to become an advocate along with a graduate from a prestigious national law school, it will have a great balancing effect and remove disparity in attitude.“
Go BCI! Cheers! 😀
