Now there is no age limit for applicants who want to pursue law courses in our state. A Few months back, the government issued a notification introducing an age limit for Lawcet applicants. But recently the high court has cancelled the government order and asked to relax the norms for admissions into law courses.
The government order kept 20 years as the cut off age for applicants who want to pursue the five-year bachelors law course and 30 years for applicants who want to pursue a three-year bachelor course.
Many people over 40 years of age write Lawcet to get admitted into bachelor level law degree (LLB both three-year and five-year) courses. The state had issued the government order to enable more youngsters to get a seat in the law courses.
Many of the older applicants objected the GO on the ‘age’ clause and approached the court. The Andhra Pradesh High Court has decided that there will be no age restriction for the candidates appearing for the Lawcet exam this year. This bought relief to over 20,000 applicants who were said to have affected by the GO and now they would be allowed to write the exams.
Other common entrance tests such as Eamcet and Icet, which are conducted for admissions into professional courses like engineering, medicine, MBA and MCA have an age limit.
