Vasanthakumar Advt: Congratulations to Mr. Vasanthkumar who is the counsel for respondent. His concern before the Hon’ble Court now going to bring a good and healthy change that candidates those completed HSC and UG through regular course alone can enter into Advocate profession.

[9/4, 17:57] Vasanthakumar Advt: The Bar Council of India can take a cue from this judgment
and make necessary changes in Rule 5 to ensure that the candidates who
completes their Higher Secondary and UG through regular course alone are
made eligible to participate for selection in the 5 year course or 3 year course,
as the case may be. The Bar Council of India should seriously take this
suggestion into consideration and make necessary changes to the Rule. Para no.10
[9/4, 17:57] Vasanthakumar Advt: 9. This Court is able to understand the concern expressed by
the learned counsel appearing for the respondent to the effect that a candidate
who has right through undergone education through distance education in 10th
Standard, 10+2 and UG and who has never undergone regular course at any
point of time, is knocking the doors of this Court claiming himself to be eligible
for being considered for the 3 year Law Course. However, the Rule viz., Rule 5
of the Bar Council of India Rules does not seem to match the concern expressed
by the learned counsel for the respondent. The Rule itself provides for anexception to undergo education through distance/correspondence mode. Till
this Rule is in force, a candidate who satisfies the requirements of this rule will
have to be considered for admission to the course. Para no.9
[9/4, 17:57] Vasanthakumar Advt: Congratulations to Mr. Vasanthkumar who is the counsel for respondent. His concern before the Hon’ble Court now going to bring a good and healthy change that candidates those completed HSC and UG through regular course alone can enter into Advocate profession.
