Forty students of the Chanakya national law university (CNLU) and 15 law students of Patna university have cleared the 29th Bihar Judicial Services Competitive Examination, conducted by the Bihar Public Service Commission (BPSC) and made it to the judicial services.
The result of the examination was declared on October 31.
According to CNLU registrar SP Singh, Ram Manohar Choudhary of the CNLU secured the 5th rank in the examination while another student of CNLU Rashmi Agrawal secured the 7th position. A former CNLU faculty member Brij Nath also cleared the examination, Singh said.
In addition, 15 law students from Patna University also qualified for appointment through the examination. Those who cleared the examination included just one from the 2017 LL.M batch – namely, Ashwini Kumar of the third semester made it to the merit list.
Besides, five from the LL.M batch of 2016 cleared the examination. “Nine other candidates who cleared the examination were from other previous batches,” said Salim Javed of the PU’s post graduate faculty at the Patna law college.
“Earlier also, in 2013, 13 students of PU made it to the Judicial services and have been clearing the examinations for years. I am happy that our students have made it again. We have always set up our course syllabus keeping in mind the syllabus and patterns of competitive examinations so that students do not have to take any extra classes for their papers,” Javed added.
