HRD Minister Kapil Sibal assured the bar association that the proposed higher education bill does not aim to impede with the legal education.

Kapil Sibal wrote a letter to bar association stating that Bar Council of India has the freedom to lay down the minimum education standards for awarding degrees in law.

The BCI had termed the proposed legislation as undemocratic and unconstitutional and the one that violates its powers and threatened last month that lawyers all over the country would go on strike on July 11 and 12, 2012 if the ministry does not remove legal education from the ambit of the bill.

Sibal expressed that bar association is under the impression that the higher education bill will interfere with disciplinary powers of the Bar Council as far as conduct of members of the legal profession are concerned.

He clarified that the proposed legislation does not comprise of any provision which will hinder the powers of BCI or the State Bar Councils with respect to the control of the practice of law or in the matter of exercise of disciplinary powers qua members of the judicial profession.

He explained that meeting will give an opportunity to each side to give their opinion and facilitate him to clarify issues related to the proposed bill as it aims at strengthening the higher education system in India.

As per the minister, BCI will continue to administer institutions which award LLB degree for maintaining the education standards under the proposed bill.
