Can’t ask BCI to equate LL.B degree obtained in UK with undergraduate course in India: Delhi High Court

Sachdeva completed his schooling in India and then went to the UK, where he took admission in the LL.B. (Hons) Bachelor of Law course at the University of Hertfordshire. He returned to India abd sought enrolment as an advocate on the basis of this degree.

He was informed by the BCI that to be qualified to practice as an advocate in India, he would have to undertake a two-year bridge course conducted by the India International University of Legal Education and Research, situated in Goa.

The petitioner moved the High Court and said that he cannot afford the two-year course.

The BCI told the Court that if Sachdeva does not want to do the two-year bridge course, then he will have to undertake a five-year law course.
