Jan 08, Colombo: The upper age limit to take the entrance examination to the Law College of Sri Lanka has been reduced to 30 years from this year, the Council of Legal Education of Sri Lanka has announced.
The policy is to be implemented for the 2015 intake of the students for the Law College. The students who will be admitted in 2015 to the Law College will have to take the entrance exam this year and the new age limit will be applied to them.
Only the candidates under 30 years of age can sit for the Law College Entrance examination in 2014.
The Council of Legal Education sought to reduce the upper age limit to 35 few years ago but suspended the decision due to protests.
The Council has also decided from April 2014 to offer the test papers of the year-end examinations of the Law College only in English language. However, the students can write their answers in any of the three official languages.
