The Bar Council of India (BCI) has resolved to increase the upper age limit from the current 20 to 22 years for admissions to the 5-year law degree programme.
It also resolved to increase the upper age limit for admissions to three-year degree course in law from the current 30 to 45 years.
The BCI passed a resolution for increasing the upper age limit for both programmes at its general body meeting in Kolkata on Wednesday.
“It is an interim decision meant to be implemented in the academic session of 2017-18 only. Our legal education committee will take a final decision for the implementation of the upper age limit beyond academic session of 2017-18,” the council chairman Manan Kumar Mishra
