In a shocking development all the students from arguably the top three law colleges in the country: NLSIU, Bangalore; NALSAR, Hyderbad and NUJS, Kolkata have failed in the first ever Bar Exam held by the Bar Council of India on 30 December, 2010 in 50 centers accross India.

“It is a surprise to us that all the students have failed”, said Mr. Barrier of the Bar Council of India.

The president of the Students Bar Council of NLSIU when contacted said, “The question papers which we were handed read ‘Bar Bar Examination-2010’. Our students mistook it for being an examination for being barred from the bar and didn’t take the exam. Hence, no body could make it”.

Mr Barrier when apprised of the situation replied, “The students of NLUs should stop using their minds too much. My experience as a judge of moot courts suggests that students from NLUs use too much of their brain in their memos and arguments. We don’t need such brainy law students. They just need to be reasonable students”.

NUJS’ student body representative too pointed at the typographical mistake, “We thought that the exam had too be completed twice (bar bar) which none of us could. Fearing the disrepute such results would bring to the institution we decided not to submit the answer sheets at all”.

Final Year Law Student who has been in the final year since last 7 years to proactively take up the cause of final year students said, "We all thought that BCI wanted to test whether we paid attention to detail but...". We will keep you updated on some PIL or blog from him as this is what he usually does.

NALSAR representatives could not be reached because of the ongoing Telangana trouble.
