Bar Council of India


The Bar Council of India (BCI) has informed the Supreme Court that it will not permit candidates take admission in law courses if they have obtained 10+2 or graduation or even post-graduation degree through open universities, even though such degrees are recognised by the University Grants Commission.

Further, it is also irrelevant that a candidate has worked with a lawyer and is conversant with the profession.

“The higher qualification obtained by the short-cut method cannot be equated with the scheme of 15 years of education in any manner and a graduate of an open university with no formal education cannot be expected to have a mature understanding as compared to those graduates who have formal education,” the BCI reasoned.
