Former Chief Justice of the Allahabad High Court, Justice Govind Mathur, will chair the 12-member committee, and the Secretary-General, Association of Indian Universities (AIU) will be the special invitee to the expert committee.

Prof Vandana may be requested to place her views, the council said.
The BCI, however, will not issue any guidelines with regard to holding of examinations, according to reports.
"Bar Council of India’s predominant view this year has been to leave this matter with the respective Universities and enable them to take a decision keeping in view the convenience and the situation, the University and Students are placed in", BCI said
“The council was of the view that a high-level committee of noted academicians/vice-chancellors be constituted and requested to deliberate on this issue and suggest a consensual mode for holding examination/evaluation and promotion for intermediate semester Law students should be formulated,” the council said.
