77-year-old seeking to study LL.B challenges BCI notification prescribing age-limit, says everyone has a Right to study law

The Septuagenarian has urged the court to declare that she has a fundamental right to pursue legal education and that the right is protected under the umbrage of Article 21 of the Constitution.

A septuagenarian desirous of studying law and denied admission to pursue a three year LL.B course has challenged BCI rules prescribing an upper age limit of 20 years for 5 year and 30 years for a 3 year LL.B course.

To this end, the 77-year old woman has moved a plea to intervene in a case already pending on the issue wherein the revenant BCI rule has been challenged i.e. Rishabh Duggal vs Bar Council of India (BCI).
