Bar Council of India (BCI) has derecognized LLB programme being offered by Delhi University at three centres including DU North Campus Law Centre and two other centres located in South Delhi. 

BCI-DU-LLB-Controversy
In a letter sent to the central university, BCI has asked the authorities not to enroll any student in their law programmes as the council does no longer recognize the law programme being offered by the varsity, a BCI official said. He added that the letter, in this regard was sent to the University officials on September 22.

 

In another letter sent to various State Bar Councils of India on September 22, BCI has asked them not to recognize the students of DU Faculty of Law as advocates. BCI Chairman BS Sinsinwar said, “BCI has asked State Bar Councils of India not to enroll the DU LLB passed out candidates of batch 2011-12 as advocates because the DU LLB Faculty centres did not have approval from BCI as per Legal Education Rule, 2008.”

 

According to experts, the BCI decision may affect hundreds of students who have passed out from DU law programmes since 2011, the year when the University breached the BCI regulations by increasing the number of seats without improving on the basic infrastructure and other facilities.

 

The BCI, however, has left the window open by offering another chance to DU provided it promises to adhere to its regulations.  “BCI can review the order, if Faculty of Law, DU makes the changes in infra as per 2008 Legal Education Rule,” said Murari Tiwari, Honorary Secretary, Bar Council of Delhi.

 

The Delhi University had increased the number of seats in the year 2011 from 400-500 to 1000. It, however, did not follow the BCI guidelines on infrastructure and facility improvement.  The BCI had repeatedly expressed concern about the lack of facilities to support the increased capacity in the DU law centres.

 

As per BCI rules, a law school that increases its intake need to get a fresh approval if it has not been inspected for a continuous period of 5 years.

 

DU Authorities were not available for comment on the BCI decision.

 

Delhi University offers undergraduate law programme awarding a LLB degree. As per officials DU offers as many as 2611 seats in LLB programme of which 301 are supernumerary seats reserved for Physically Handicapped/ Defence Personnel.
