Default Gauhati University to scrap age limit for law courses

After Allahabad University, Gauhati University (GU) has removed the age bar for three-year and five-year courses in law, officials in GU said. Students interested in enrolling for law courses from the 2014-15 academic sessions will be eligible for the entry without an age limit.Academic registrar of GU, aspirants of any age, who have scored the minimum marks required for admission to three-year and five-year courses in law, can apply for a seat in the two courses in law under GU.

The university took the decision following a directive from the Bar Council of India.

A bachelor degree were eligible for the three-year course in law, while for the five-year course, Class XII graduates could apply for admission.

For both courses, the minimum marks required in the qualifying examinations for general category students is 45 per cent, but in case of scheduled caste (SC) and scheduled tribe (ST) aspirants, there will be a relaxation of up to five per cent.

Till last year, the maximum age for applying for the five-year and three-year courses in law was 20 and 30 years respectively.

The recent notification issued by GU allowing aspirants of any age to apply for the two courses has brought cheer to all those who dream of becoming lawyers, but left their studies years ago.
