Hubli: Some of the law colleges in Karnataka
were in pathetic condition as they are run by "hooligans",
state Advocate General Ashok Haranahalli said on Wednesday.

These colleges were flooded with candidates without
proper qualification, he told a national conference on legal
education here.
Persons inspecting such colleges were influenced by "the
hospitality" and unbiased reports could not be expected from
them, he said and asked the Bar Council of India to bring in
some regulation barring acceptance of gifts and incentives.

He emphasised that inspecting teams should follow some
moral code of conduct.
He alleged that "some of the law colleges were in
pathetic condition as they are run by hooligans".

Haranahalli also stressed the need for a national network
among state bar councils to prevent below average persons from
entering the legal profession and wanted tough guidelines to
be followed while sanctioning law colleges.

The need of the hour was to strengthen the legal
education system to face challenges in the future, he said.
