Welfare Of Law Students Is Also A Matter Of Public Interest As Far As The Institution Of Judiciary Is Concerned : Karnataka HC

The Bar Council of India informed the Karnataka High Court that it has constituted a sub-committee to address the issue of how mandatory regulations for all final year students of Five Year Law Course, to engage themselves in moot courts, internships, pre-trial preparation etc, can be relaxed or alternative rules can be formulated. Advocate Shridhar Prabhu appearing for the Council informed the High Court that the sub-commitee is also contemplating whether Law Universities can be given liberty to frame their alternative rules, for the academic year 2019-20. He argued that the University Grants Commission (UGC) has mandated that from September 2020 all final year exams have to be concluded. This decision is impugned before the Supreme Court and the petition is likely to be taken up for hearing Monday. He said, “Suppose the honourable supreme court was to say that the final year exam cannot be held at all, then this petition need not be adjudicated.”
