Mumbai, Oct 9: The admission process for three-year LLB programme has started and will go on until December 4 this year. However, due to delay in results by Mumbai University, students will only have five months to cover two semesters. The first round of the admission was done on Saturday. The second round of the admission will commence from October 25.

This year Mumbai University created a mess and many results were declared very late that led to delay in admission process too. Due to this, law colleges across the state are told to cover two semesters of the first year in just five months.

As reported by Times of India, an official said that universities across the state can ask colleges to conduct lectures on public holidays or increase the number of lecture timing in a day or work on weekends.

The admission process for the law course was postponed under the court’s directive due to three court cases filed by students whose results were delayed by the varsity. The state’s CET cell stated, “The director (higher education) is expected to release a circular to all universities to change their academic calendars to ensure the quality of education is not compromised”.
