Hearing the petitions filed by students who have sought admissions into the five-year LLB Course at the Government Law College (GLC) against the state’s decision of reworking all the admissions, the Bombay high court (HC) reserved its orders on Friday.

As the court noted that GLC had provided for faculty-wise reservations for which there is no provision in the law, the state government, on July 14, had stated before the court that it will re-work all the admissions for the five-year LLB course. The statement was made during the hearing on a petition filed by Swati Khinvasara, a CBSE student, who had challenged the state’s circular prescribing a reduction of 5% marks of students from boards, other than the state board.

On Friday, senior advocate SU Kamdar, representing the students from the state board, argued that re-working the admissions would waste the students’ academic year. A division bench of justice AM Khanwilkar and justice RY Ganoo reserved orders on their pleas.
