The Karnataka HC has asked the BCI to clarify if it has powers to relax rules and allow law universities to issue alternative guidelines, to dispense the mandatory regulations for all final year students of five year law course, to engage themselves in moot courts and internships.


A bench comprising of Chief Justice of Karnataka Abhay Oka and Justice J M Nagaprasann stated: “Today the bar council may have taken this decision but tomorrow we may not know what will happen. So we have to secure the future of the students ”.


The bench added, “ Suppose , a student wants to pursue education in a foreign university after completion of course and if the degree is not recognised at a later stage , it will affect their career”.


The direction was given during the hearing of a petition filed by two law students, Gautam R and Krishnamurthy TK students of NLU Bangalore pursuing B.A.LLB.
