The Mahapradesh Law Colleges Managements’ Association


The Bar Council of Mahishmati & Another


Mahapradesh is one of the States of the Union of Mahishmati, governed by Constitution similar to that of The Constitution of India. The State government decided to conduct CET for admission in to Law courses from the academic year 2016-17 onwards through Government Resolution No. 111 dated 01-01-2016 and informed all law colleges/Universities, which are offering law courses stating that the admission process for 1st year of 3 and 5 year LL.B Courses will be done through the CET known as ‘Mahapradesh Common Entrance Test-Law’. The State Govt. also informed that the law colleges/Universities which are having Government Permission, University Affiliation and the Approval of The Bar Council of Mahishmati (hereinafter referred as BCM) are only be allotted candidates. The government directed through its circular directed all law colleges to obtain the necessary approvals from the respondent No.1, i.e., the BCM by remitting the prescribed inspection fee within the specified time.

Being aggrieved by these conditions, The Mahapradesh Law Colleges Managements Association filed a Writ Petition in the Hon’ble Supreme Court against BCM and the State of Mahapradesh and sought the relief of allotment of candidates to all Law Colleges which were duly permitted by the Government and Universities and further prayed to direct the BCM, and the State Government to refund the inspection fee collected by the BCM with interest and to declare that ‘no approval is needed’ from the BCM.

The petitioner association contended that its Law Colleges cannot be compelled  to get approval of BCM as there is no such statutory compulsion either under Mahishmati  University Grants Commission Act, The Advocates Act, 1961 or Mahapradesh Universities Act, 1994 subsequently replaced with Mahapradesh Public Universities Act,2016. Further the BCM is not entitled to fix and collect the inspection fee without consulting the stakeholders. The petitioner’s association expressed its serious concerns about the competency, integrity and honesty of Inspection Teams of BCM. Further it has contended that the statutory duties/functions of the BCM are to regulate the legal profession only.

The respondent BCM has stated that it has derived the authority from The Advocates Act, 1961 and the Rules framed there under from time to time to regulate and maintain the standards of legal education. The respondent BCM further submitted that the students who are admitted and passed out from such colleges without approval from BCM will not be eligible or permitted to enroll as Advocates. It further stated that the petitioner and the State Government will have to face severe consequences for such unlawful admissions.

The second respondent State Government categorically submitted its say stating that the respondent no.1 has no role to play except to confine to its functions as per  Sec.7 (1) (h) (i) of The Advocates Act,1961. Further it has stated that during the pendency of the present Writ it has withdrawn the circular compelling the Law Colleges to obtain approval from the BCM.

The said case is posted for final arguments of Petitioner and Respondent No.1.


  1. Whether the Rules of Legal Education, 2009 framed by the BCM be declared null and void to the extent that they are in contradiction with the provisions of The Advocates Act, 1961.
  2. Whether the BCM’s denial of enrolment of any candidate as an Advocate, who passed out from any Law College without its approval of affiliation is constitutionally valid?
  3. Whether the BCM and Government of Mahapradesh are liable to refund the inspection fee collected with interest?

The counsel for the parties may also refer the following for arguments:

  1. The Advocates Act, 1961 and Functions and Powers of BCM are very much replica of The Advocates Act, 1961(India) and Bar Council of India Rules under Part IV.
  2. The Advocates Act, 1961 and the Rules framed there under from time to time relating to Legal Education.
  3. The University Grants Commission Act, 1956.
  4. The Maharashtra Universities Act, 1994/ Maharashtra Public Universities Act, 2016 and the Reports of Law Commission of India.
