BCI clears GLC and ‘most’ errant Maha law colleges

Most of the “errant” Maharashtra government law colleges have now been cleared for admissions, by the Bar Council of India (BCI), reported the Hindustan Times confirming Legally India’s report from last week.

After our report citing BCI member from Maharashtra Satish Deshmukh on the bar council clearance given to GLC Mumbai and other law colleges in the state, HT had published a report to the contrary.

In its latest report HT doesn’t name the colleges that have been given the go-ahead by the BCI as, according to its report, the final list of approved colleges is yet to be released but the list is based on the colleges’ undertaking to appoint the required number of teachers within six months and also pay up due fines.

“90 per cent” of the errant colleges, including GLC, are part of this list of cleared colleges, according to Live Law. In Live Law’s version of the events, the colleges have been granted one year’s time, and not just six months, for recruiting teachers in the ratio of 40:1.

In the challenge to the Maharashtra Common Entrance Test (CET) for admission to law colleges in the state, justice Sonak observed that the BCI’s cannot regulate colleges to the extent where there exists “a situation where there are no admissions”, reported Bar and Bench.
