The Supreme Court has stayed the Bar Council of India notification fixing the upper age limit for LLB admissions. Therefore, there will be no age limit for admission to law programmed for the academic year 2017-18.
Earlier on Wednesday, the bar Council of India in a general body meeting decided to fix the age limit of 22 years for 5 year LLB course and 45 years for 3 year LLB course.
A Supreme Court bench has passed the stay order after the counsel representing Bar Council of India informed the court about BCI’s decision. The bench stayed the BCI’s notification dated September 7, 2016 and all consequential orders.
The final hearing of the matter is scheduled in the third week of July. Petitions were filed by CLAT (Common Law Admission Test) aspirants challenging the fixing of age limit by BCI for admission to law courses.
