BCI & Law Schools To Arrange Internships For Law students: Says BCI Before Delhi HC

By LawStreet News Network      07 February, 2020 03:02 PM      1 Comments

As put forth by the Bar Council of India (BCI) on the 6th of February, 2020, internships will now be arranged by BCI itself, for law students. In suo moto proceedings that pertained to the suicide of an Amity law school student Sushant Rohilla who committed suicide in 2016 when he was not allowed to sit for exams due to his low attendance, the Bar Council of India has assured that internships will be arranged. 

A division bench of Justices Siddharth Mridul and Najmi Waziri recorded the submission made by the counsel for BCI for the court's order passed on the 10th of January, 2020 as - "He assures the Court that henceforth, the Bar Council of India shall ensure that the arrangement and placement for Internship shall be ensured by the BCI and by the law school itself and the students will not be required to make arrangements for their internships at Regulatory Bodies, Government Organization, Law firms, Advocates, etc., on their own"

The court has granted time to bring on record the list of all the senior lawyers who have agreed to provide internships to law students, in terms of Rule 26 of Part - IV, Schedule - III (Concerning the legal Education in India) of the BCI Rules. 

Raghav Sharma (Sushant Rohilla's friend) had written to the then Chief justice of India for trying the authorities at Amity for aiding Sushant's suicide. The Court took cognizance of that letter and in the May of 2017, transferred the case to the Delhi High Court. 

The matter will be taken up for further hearing on the February 7th, 2020 (Friday).
