2 Dibrugarh law colleges under BCI scanner

By STAFF correspondent

DIBRUGARH, Oct 22 � At a time when Bar Council India (BCI) has issued showcause notices to DHSK Law College, Dibrugarh and Dr R K Baruah Law College, Dibrugarh as to why the two institutions should not be permanently closed, the Centre for Juridical Studies (CJS) of Dibrugarh University (DU), has also been dragged into controversy following mere rejection of its application for affiliation.

The legal education committee of the BCI rejected the application of CJS. However it has granted Dibrugarh University the liberty to apply afresh �after being fully cognizant of requirement of the faculty for the courses, the curriculum and the plan of study as prescribed by Bar Council of India (BCI) in Legal Education Rules 2008�. Barring appointment of a Professor, Reader or Principal, the University has fulfilled all the conditions, as per the complaince report in the form of affidavit sworn by the Registrar and sent to the BCI. Meanwhile, as per the BCI directive, the University has also deposited Rs 2 lakh as guarantee to fulfil all the norms.

To fulfil the requirement of the faculty for law course, Dibrugarh University has already initiated the process for interview and after their appointment, the University would submit a fresh application seeking temporary approval of affiliation from BCI, Dr M N Das, Director incharge, CJS said. Dibrugarh University, which has not been served showcause notice but asked to fulfil the requirement of a qualified faculty, is at least confident of getting temporary approval of affiliation from BCI.

But the two law colleges of the city - DHSK Law College, Dibrugarh and Dr R K Baruah Law College, Dibrugarh, have been issued direction preventing them from making any admission for the coming years.

As per the minutes of the BCI, the observation of the Legal Education Committee for DHSK law College reads: �Having regard to the inspection report we are not satisfied that the said college will be able to impart legal education of high quality. We reject the application. We issue a direction restraining the law college from making any admission for the year 2010-2011. Notice to show cause as to why the said law college should not be permanently closed. Notice to show cause to the Chief Secretary, Government of Assam about the students who have been admitted for the year 2007-2008, 2008-2009, 2009-2010 as to how the said students will be accomodated in colleges which are duly recognized.� The observations for Dr R K Baruah Law College reads: �Having regard to the inspection report we are not satisfied that the said college will be able to impart legal education of high quality. We reject the application. Injunction is issued restraining the law college from making any admission for the year 2010-2011. Notice to show cause as to why the said law college should not be permanently closed. Notice to show cause to the Chief Secretary, Government of Assam about the students who have been admitted for the year 2007-2008, 2008-2009, 2009-2010 as to how the said students will be accomodated in colleges which are duly recognized.�
