The Law Commission has recommended action against striking lawyers and allowing entry of foreign firms and lawyers in the proposed Advocates (Amendment) Bill. Advocates in regard with this protested outside Borivali Court on 21 April.
Lawyers were burning the copy of Law Commission’s recommendation. Borivali Bar Association lawyers protested under the aegis of Bar Council of India and Bar Council of Maharashtra. Lawyers have planned jail bharo on 2 May.
Rajesh More, President Borivali Advocate Bar Association stated that we are protesting against the proposed bill. The bill has been proposed hastily and did not wait for the final suggestions from the BCI. The proposed bill takes away the freedom of lawyers to act fearlessly in the court proceedings.
