- A Division Bench of Justices RD Dhanuka and RI Chagla withdrew its July 5th circular which was on cancelling the results of various semesters of the LLB program students.
- The earlier circular stated to give marks to students based on the assignment-based evaluation in which 10 assignments had to be submitted in a 21-day period without any classes being held for it.
- The proceedings started when a petition was filed by a final year student, Layola Ferns, in which around 10,000 students were aggrieved with the time limits and average scores.
- The Mumbai University contended that it was based on the notifications based on the directives of the Bar Council of India.
- The Division Bench duly noted and accepted Mr. Kulkarni's statement about the circular to stand with drawn and directed that the results on the basis of average marks scored in aforementioned semesters and internal marks shall be restored.
- The Court viably disposed of the petition by stating that the problems raised by the students were resolute in light of the BCI's statement and made in correct perspective, considering the destiny of a huge number of law students, who were in misery and mental trauma because of instructions issued by the BCI and followed by the MU.
- The petition’s ground was that neither the BCI, nor the MU was authorized to pass any such directions.
