Bombay high court on Monday thrashed the Bar Council of India for its order to Mumbai University that resulted in the cancellation of result for different semesters of the LLB program.

“We are of prima facie view that results having already been declared on May 22, 2020, in respect of various semesters could not have been withdrawn and students could not have been directed to submit assignments for the purpose of further evaluation,” said a bench of Justices Ramesh Dhanuka and Riyaz Chagla on a petition by Latoya Ferns, a final-year government college student.

The student’s advocate, Shashank Sudhir, contended results that are announced can't be dropped and substituted with task-based assessment as recommended by Mumbai University's July 5th circular. Additionally, the assignments must be submitted in 21 days without online classes. BCI's advocate Amit Sale said Advocates Act, 1971, engages it to make rules for lawful education. “Does it say cancel existing results and call for assignments?” asked Justice Dhanuka.

Mumbai University’s advocate Ashutosh Kulkarni said its circular was based on BCI’s June 10 press release Also, among 10,000 students only Latoya is aggrieved with the time limit for assignments, he argued.
