For all the latest India News, the Bar Council of India (BCI) said it will not allow law graduates above its prescribed age limit to register themselves for practice.Following a spate of confusion over the age restriction on admissions the state Thursday decided against an age limit as is the case with the all-India Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) “We have decided that this year’s admissions will be in accordance with CLAT Moreover our brochures for admissions had not specified any age limit and aspirants had applied accordingly Since the Common Entrance Test is over and merit list declared we have decided to do away with the age limit for this year” said Sitaram Kunte Principal Secretary Higher Education department The decision clears the dilemma of law colleges that were issued letters by BCI earlier this week to inform about the age restrictions The BCI however kept its promise Earlier the apex body that governs legal education across the country had said the state could admit students irrespective of age the BCI would not allow those exceeding age limits (20 years for five-year LLB and 30 years for three-year LLB) to practice as lawyers A standing committee member of BCI said “We will not allow anyone above the prescribed age limit to enroll with the BCI for practice They can however take admissions to gain knowledge” Meanwhile Kunte said the state government will propose to the BCI to reconsider the age restriction for this year’s batch “We will urge the BCI to exempt this year’s batch from the age limit as the admission process is already underway An informed decision can be taken later for next year onwards after the legal complexity of Clause 28 of Rule 11 of the Standards of Legal Education (Rules) is resolved” said Kunte The fate of law aspirants has been in jeopardy ever since the BCI claimed the clause was valid despite a Punjab and Haryana High Court ruling that quashed it Confusion over the age limit of law aspirants has continued since 2008 when the BCI introduced Clause 28 in the rules framed under the Advocates Act 1961 According to the clause courses were to have a fixed upper limit – 20 years for the five-year course (22 for SC/ST) and 30 years for the three-year LLB course (35 for SC/ST) The clause was later challenged and in 2011 the Punjab and Haryana High Court quashed it The BCI too withdrew the clause in 2013 through a notification However fresh confusion erupted after contradicting judgments were passed in the Madras and Bombay High Courts The BCI went to Supreme Court but the validity of the clause is still unclear For more news inlaw colleges admission click here For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Man Aman Singh Chhina | Chandigarh |

also planning demonstrations at various locations across the state One such rally is being organised on July 8 by Indian Ex-Services League (IESL) in Bathinda Several such rallies are planned near military station in the state in order to show solidarity with the ex-servicemen who are sitting on relay hunger strike at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi Brig Inder Mohan Singh President of IESL’s Punjab chapter said that it has been decided that there is no use of holding protests outside the office of Deputy Commissioner etc as these very officers are stumbling blocks for OROP when they go to Ministry of Defence and Ministry of Finance “We have decided to hold demonstrations near cantonments and military stations In Bathinda we will assemble outside Sub Area headquarters and we will walk towards the Corps headquarters entrance gate holding banners” said Brig Singh After Bathinda the ex-servicemen plan to hold a rally in Amritsar where the local MP Capt Amarinder Singh may also participate in it Meanwhile the Chairman of Indian Ex-Services Movement (IESM) Lt Gen Raj Kadyan (retd) has said that while the spirit among the ex-servicemen is praiseworthy the kind of strong language used at public meetings and contemplated action is scary In an e-mail to ex-servicemen Lt Gen Kadyan said that at one rally which he attended in Bhiwani recently several speakers made personal remarks against political leaders and talked of stopping trains disrupting the Parliament from functioning etc He added that “a lot of venom was being poured through emails and the social media is greatly fuelling the anger” adding that the overall scenario is not in national interest “We need to consider if we are heading in the right direction Those of us that have been actively involved in the OROP movement did not surely intend taking this route We need to calm things down The officers bear a special responsibility We have to make others understand the larger implications of adopting an unlawful approach There is also a real fear that we would make our own task of resolving several other welfare problems more difficult and may lose the current level of public support

who have suicidal tendencies could significantly reduce future suicide attempts and save many lives a new study has found Researchers at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and Brown University in the US found that phone calls to suicidal patients following discharge from Emergency Departments led to a 30 per cent reduction in future suicide attempts The year-long trial which involved 1376 patients across US provided suicidal patients with interventions that included specialised screening safety planning guidance and follow-up telephone calls “People who are suicidal are often disconnected and socially isolated” said Michael Allen professor at the CU Anschutz “So any positive contact with the world can make them feel better” said Allen Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US Over one million people attempt to take their own life every year Allen said simply handing a suicidal patient a psychiatric referral when discharged is not enough “We call them up to seven times to check on them after discharge” said Allen “If they aren’t there we leave a message and call again For many this telephone call is all they get” he said “We don’t need more brick and mortar buildings we can reduce suicide risk by simply calling people on the phone” Allen said “Telephone follow-up programs offer a great way to help bridge an ED visit to outpatient mental health care and hopefully save lives” said Emmy Betz an associate professor at CU Anschutz The trial took place in three phases to create three comparison groups In the first phase 497 patients received each ED’s usual treatment as a control group In phase two universal screening was implemented and 377 patients received additional attention in the ED In the third phase 502 patients received the experimental intervention Those patients received the same Phase 2 care including additional suicide screening from ED physicians suicide prevention information from nurses and a personal safety plan they could fill out to prepare for times when they might begin harbouring suicidal thoughts again Over the next year they also received periodic phone calls from trained providers who would discuss suicide risk factors personal values and goals safety and future planning treatment engagement and problem solving The number of suicide attempts and the proportion of people attempting suicide declined significantly in the intervention group compared to treatment as usual The middle group which received only additional screening did not show a significant drop compared to the
