BCI Entrance Test for Law Graduates
Law Entrance Exam
The Bar Council of India (BCI) proposed to conduct its mandatory entrance test for law graduates in December, only after which they would be allowed to practice the law.
Instead of the earlier July-August schedule for the test it was decided to conduct the same in December to give the students sufficient time for preparation.
The BCI had come out with the proposal to conduct entrance test for law graduates before allowing them to practice. However, there would be no bar on law graduates in getting enrolled before clearing the exams.
The apex court had passed the direction while dealing with a petition filed by the BCI challenging the Madhya Pradesh High Court direction to the Council to grant recognition to the Bonnie Law college.
The high court had passed the direction after the BCI had cancelled the recognition to the college on the ground that it lacked adequated standards and infrastructure.
