While passing the order on February 8, the court had noted that order was limited to first to fourth year of Five year law students only. Following that, a batch of law students of the 3-year LL.B course at KSLU had also approached the court seeking the same relief. During the hearing the earlier, the Advocate N.Ganapathi Bhat, appearing for the University had informed the court that since this Court has quashed the circular issued by it, the University is postponing the examinations of not only the five years Law Course but also with respect to the three years Law Course. A bench of Justice R Devdas also mentioned that the directions given by the High Court shall be applicable only to semesters which were affected by Covid 19 and not a blanket order for all times to come. Further, Bar Council of India need not be given a specific direction for accepting the marks sheet issued by KSLU for students as it is a party (respondent) in the instant writ proceedings. The court said “Needless to add that the directions given by the court is not applicable to final year students, but only to the other semester students.” It was also clarified that the results of even semester exams are required to be announced much earlier to odd semester exams to enable students to appear for re-examination in those subjects in which they have failed.   Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
