The Karnataka High Court on Friday directed the Karnataka State Law University (KSLU) to take a decision on whether it would conduct final year exams for 3-year LL.B course for odd semester alone..The query was posed by a single-judge of Justice R Devdas in the light of the fact that a similar direction was issued by the Court earlier this week with respect to 5-year LL.B course. .“….This Court had struck down the circular of the Respondent University dated 09.11.2020 and directed University to conduct examination of only ODD semester for final year course. A decision will have to be taken by University whether it will accept the same decision for the three-year LLB course students. Awaiting decision of the University," the order passed on Friday said..The Court was hearing a batch of pleas challenging the decision to hold end semester examinations for law students of the 3-year LL.B course at KSLU this year..Earlier this week, the Court had quashed two circulars issued by Bar Council of India (BCI) and KSLU mandating the conduct of offline exams for intermediate semester students of KSLU. .During the hearing on Friday, petitioner's advocate VJ Joseph submitted that the plea was seeking only a limited prayer - to adopt the pattern of 5-year LL.B for the 3-year LL.B..“If the University, on its own is taking the decision, the problem will be resolved…We will keep it pending. Let us wait for the decision of the University, ” Justice Devdas opined. .Counsel appearing for KSLU submitted that it had postponed end semester exams for 3-year LL.B students amid the COVID-19 pandemic..A circular to this effect was also produced today by the KSLU counsel..The matter will now be heard on February 21.
