According to the decision taken by Bar Council of India (BCI), the Faculty of Law, University of Delhi will only admit 1,440 students to its LLB programme from the next academic session, i.e., 2017- 2018. The current intake is 2,310. The BCI has also directed the University to cancel evening classes from next year. However, this year, the evening classes will take place, as scheduled.
