As you are already aware the Incorporated Council of Legal
Education by an Extra Ordinary gazette dated December 30th 2020 set out the
following rules for students, enrolled for a LLB programme under a university
recognized by the council of legal education.
1. All students currently enrolled under the LL.B /CertHE in Common programmes (
of the University of London), needs to complete their LL. B degree on or before
2. Students who are unable to complete their studies and obtain the LL. B degree
on or before 2025 will have to sit for a “special entrance exam” conducted by
the Sri Lanka Law College in order to gain admission to Law College. This will
be applicable only after 2025 for students already registered with the
University of London.
3. Students can sit for the special entrance exam multiple times. This can be
revised by the council at any given time at their sole discretion. Therefore,
it is our advice, to complete your studies on or before 2025.
