if an LLM candidate is allowed to take NET exam conducted by UGC , he should well be recognized by the BCI for teaching positions. What the BCI must look into is the study material of the concerned University. If it is at par with the international standard , it should be recognized.
The decesion taken by the chairman of BCI with regard to LLM obtained by distance mode are disallowed to teach law subject for law students is really bais, Doing LLM through distance mode is very difficult then regular mode. The students who do LLM on distance mode will struggle a lot, in doing project work, assignment, Dissertation etc. When the programme is approved by UGC & Distance Education Council, it has to be considered by BCI. If BCI go by his statement, then number of tearchers working in government and pvt colleges will face major problem. If this is the case why the government permitted few of the universities in running the distance programme. As per my opinion doing 5yrs Law itself take long time, in addition to it doing LLM again will take two more years. The BCI has to provide for Law professional to do LLM ON distance mode.
Let Mr Manan Kumar Mishra be directed to appear again for the Bachelor of Law Examination at any University campus with the new students, then only every thing would be clear as how he has himself got the Law degree whether by genuine appearance or by proxy or by cheating in the examination. If he has caliber, he take it as a challenge and give his show. He is a politician only and has got this Chairmanship as a politician by purchasing the Members.
Bar & Bench: Any plans on introducing reforms to improve the standard of legal education in India? I would like to ask the new Chairman BCI Mr Manan Kumar Mishra that what make him to decided that teachers who have obtained their LLM degree from a correspondence course or distance education WILL NOT BE ALLOWED to teach in Law Colleges though by conveying that still this matter is under consideration before the UGCFurther, I want to ask BCI Chairman that, Whether, the students who persuade and obtained their LLM Degrees via Distance or Correspondence from Indian UGC Recognized Universities are FAKE or NOT governed by UGC or Distance Education Council or any other Government Authorities. Furthermore, How the Chairman BCI Can point out or UNDER-ESTIMATE or REMARK on the DISTANCE EDUCATION LLM Courses and dis-allow to teach Law subjects by the LLM Teachers who completed their LLM from Distance mode of Education in India by putting the fate of thousands of Law teachers hanging in air by MR Mishra's Harsh decision ?
it is very absurd that this entire examination procedure is transparent. the applicant not not even informed till date that whether any study material will be provided and the sample question paper uploaded in the site is entirely a new one and we are expected to make the preparatory materials of our own within this short span. the entire procedure is like a hurry burry decision but expecting the law graduates to come out with flying colours. we the students to provide others the basic information but we ourselves lack for the same for our exams.
