The Bar Council of India (BCI) recently recommended various law colleges across the country to have a dress code suitable to the profession for all the students.
This came after a controversy hit the NLSIU Bangalore college this month, when a professor was witnessed castigating a student on account of her wearing shorts to the lecture. This also spurred a protest from a group of students in the college. They turned up in shorts the very next day to protest for their right to personal expression and against the moral police.
This story was covered staunchly by the media and finally the issue was resolved mutually between the students and the college. Having said this, on April7, 2016 BCI sent a notice to all colleges acting upon its concern regarding the downgrading dressing standards in Law Colleges.
It hence urged the college management to impose suitable dress code in their colleges, suggesting that the dress code could be a white shirt teamed either with black, white or grey trousers preferably.
