The Karnataka High Court has directed the Karnataka State Law University to consider sympathetically and decided on a representation to be made by a law student who could not complete his Five Year B.A LLB course within the stipulated period of 10 years from the admission to the course.

A single judge bench of Justice P Krishan Bhat while disposing of the petition filed by one Janardhana Pujari S said,

"In view of the same, this petition is disposed of with liberty reserved to the petitioner to submit a representation within a week from today and if such a representation is submitted to the respondent-University, the same shall be considered by it sympathetically and take appropriate decision in the matter within four weeks from the date of receipt of such representation and communicate the same to the petitioner immediately thereafter."

The petitioner had sought quashing of the regulations governing the Five year B.A. LLB course, clause 15(b) whereof states that "the students are required to successfully complete the entire course within ten years from the admission to the course." He had further sought a direction to the respondents to permit him to remit the examination fee and appear for the final year examination of B.A. LLB. Scheduled from 26.04.2022.

The petitioner submitted that he was admitted for the 5 years B.A., LLB course in the year 2009 in the respondent-college. He states that on account of various reasons he could not complete the LLB Course within the stipulated period of 10 years. Thereafter, respondent-University did not permit the petitioner to take up the examination of the balance papers, which the petitioner could not clear.

It was pleaded that the petitioner may be permitted to submit a representation to the respondent-University to relax the existing conditions and permit him to take up the examination of the balance papers.

Advocate Ganapathy Bhat appearing for the University submitted that as of now, there is no provision for the students to take up the examination beyond the stipulated period. If a representation is given, the University will consider the same by placing it before the Syndicate and Academic Council.

Following which the court issued the direction to the University.
