BAR COUNCIL OF INDIA DECIDED TO PROMOTE ALL STUDENTS OF L.L.B EXCEPT for 3/3 AND 5/5 YEARS STUDENTS ….
All Students, except Final year students, will be promoted on the basis of performance of previous year’s marks and marks obtained in the internal examination of the current year. However, it is clarified that after reopening of the colleges/Universities, the Universities shall conduct the end semester examination with respect to the year from which they have been promoted, within a reasonable period of time, though, such promoted students shall continue to study in the year to which they have been promoted, and in case, they are unable to pass/clear any such paper of such end semester exam of the year from which they have been promoted, they shall have to clear the same before they are granted the degree. In the case of students who have been promoted to the final year as LL.B students, they shall have to pass all papers in order to obtain their degree/s
Alternatively, for Final year LL.B students as mentioned above, the Universities may adopt any other appropriate method which they feel is adequate to satisfy the requirements of regular examination. Under this system, the University may allow students to write a project report/research paper for each paper of final year or they may adopt a full proof method to double the internal marks of the semester exams already held for such year.
Final year students of 3 Years LL.B and 5 Years LL.B courses may be allowed to appear for online examinations.
In case of Final Year LL.B students, who have not cleared all papers of previous years and are required to sit in the supplementary examination, but, who have been promoted to final year, such Final year LL.B students may be allowed to write a project report or appear in online examination with regard to the pending/supplementary papers, so that they could also pass within time.
Universities must adhere to Covid-19 protocol and ensure that the norm of social distancing is followed in the campus and all classrooms and examination halls are properly sanitized from time to time. The safety and health of the students should not be compromised at any cost.
Universities are instructed to maintain the highest academic standards while conducting the examinations.
