A lawyer can be termed professional, but the study of law for degrees of LLB or LLM is not professional course, said Gujarat government in an affidavit before the Gujarat high court. The state legal department made it very clear that the courses run by the Gujarat National Law University cannot be treated as professional courses.
This is claimed by the government to protest a PIL demanding 27% reservation for the students from Socially and Educationally Backward Class (SEBC) in GNLU. The state government told the HC that GNLU was founded by a special law, and it is not regulated by the Gujarat Professional Technical Educational Colleges or Institutions (Regulation of Admission and Payment of Fees) Rules, 2008. The affidavit explains that the courses covered under these rules do not cover degrees in the field of law.
The affidavit said that the courses being offered by GNLU are not covered within the meaning of the term professional courses as per the law. Hence GNLU does not follow the reservation policy laid down for institutions offering professional courses, wherein there is provision for 27% quota for SEBC besides 15% for the SCs and 7% for the STs.
