DU's Evening Law Classes To Be Closed By BCI, Student Unions Protest

Posted By:

The Bar Council of India (BCI) has directed to cease the working of evening law colleges. The recommendation has been made on the basis of an adverse report that has been submitted by the BCI committee, the apex regulatory body for legal education and legal profession about infrastructure and quality of education at the centres of DU's law faculty.

Around 800 students are currently registered in the evening colleges of DU offering law.

In 2014, the BCI had decided to de-recognize DU's law course after it failed to seek timely extension of the affiliation of its three centres, namely Campus Law Centre, Law Centre-I and Law Centre-II.

However, provisional extension of affiliation for the 2014-15 session was given after the Delhi University had proposed to shift to a new building which had adequate space.

BCI To Close Down DU's Evening Law Classes

But, after a fresh inspection, the council noted hat besides fresh violations, the illegalities earlier highlighted remain unattended.

Earlier this year, the BCI had asked the DU to close down colleges offering law courses in evening shifts, saying such programmes do not ensure proper quality of legal education.

With view of the upcoming student union elections, the students uinions including ABVP, AISA and NSUI have submitted a memorandum to the HRD ministry requesting for an intervention.
