Delhi University has urged Bar Council of India (BCI) to withdraw non-eligibility directive for its LLB graduates, assuring the regulating body that the law programmes offered by its Law Faculty will be run in compliance with the set guidelines.

Prof. A. K.Bansal, Head and Dean, Faculty of Law, DU, in a letter to the Chairman of BCI has assured the council that it will abide by the Legal Education Rule, 2008. The Dean said, “I request BCI Chairman to revise his advice to State Bar Councils to withdraw non-eligibility directive for enrollment as an advocate and continue with registration as advocates for pass out LLB students from DU.”

Prof. A. K.Bansal, however, admitted that the DU Law Faculty had not undergone inspection by the council for last 5 years. He assured that the Law Faculty would take all possible measures to follow the BCI guidelines. “I assure BCI that we will come back to it for affiliation and inspection in near future,” said Prof. Bansal.


He added that BCI directive might seriously affect career of its graduates.  “The directive may have a serious consequence for large number of students roughly 1600 and in relation to this premier university and enviable Faculty of Law in its contribution to Legal Education,” he said.


After Bar Council of India has derecognized DU LLB programme, Delhi University is putting in its efforts for damage control. The controversy has brought another blow to the prestigious Delhi University twice in an academic session since FYUP roll back.


Though BCI officials maintained that the council had brought the matter to varsity’s notice as early as 2010, university officials claim that DU administration was not aware of the sent letters until two weeks ago. “The university administration came to know about the issue around September 5 after a letter from BCI reached office,” said a university official.


That Happened Till Now –

According to BCI officials, in a letter sent to the central university dated Sep 22, BCI had 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.


In another letter sent to various State Bar Councils of India on the very date, BCI has asked them not to recognize the students of DU Faculty of Law as advocates. BCI Chairman BS Sinsinwar confirmed, “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.”


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.

does unilateral impairment in one ear comes under pwd for a for a general candidate .

jishua thomas 26th Jan, 2020

hello aspirant,

Social Security disability benefits are available for profound hearing loss or deafness, but not for moderate or mild hearing loss. The Social Security Administration (SSA) details how significant your hearing loss must be to qualify for SSDI or SSI disability benefits. Don't turn a deaf ear to hearing disability in India. Hearing impairment is not an immediately visible disability. However, you will be all ears when we say one in 250 children in India suffers from severe to profound hearing loss.The minimum degree of disability should be 40% in order to be eligible for any concessions/benefits. The statistics are staggering - 360 million people in the world suffer from disabling hearing loss. This constitutes a substantial 5.3% of the world's population.

hope this helps

all the best

Is it necessary to give clat exam to get admission in DU colleges or can we get admission only by giving DU enterance exam?

Siddhi Shenoy 6th Jan, 2020

Hello Ayushi,

The CLAT exam is only for the candidates who wish to pursue undergraduate or 5 year integrated LLB course. If you want LLB, you have to answer CLAT, as your admission process is based upon the merit in this entrance exam.
