The Maharashtra government has decided to extend the deadline to register for the centralized admission process for 5-year LLB courses till June 30 as many aspirants are yet to register themselves.
A DHE official commenting on this said that out of the 14,559 candidates who took the common entrance test only 8,000 have registered themselves for the admission. With the hope of getting more applications the registration process is extended. Adding to this he also said, “With the deadline for CAP registrations being pushed ahead, we will issue a new schedule for admission.
Last year due to multiple litigation, delays and enormous confusion the law admissions had stretched for almost half a year. Also 6,000 out of 10,000 seats available for five-year LLB course across the state were left vacant, as many students failed to secure seats due to confusion and lack of awareness about CAP, which was employed for law courses for the first time in the state last year.
Commenting on this NG Mishra, principal, Lords Universal College of Law said, “Many students don’t want to pursue the five-year course as it demands much persistence.”
