Judicial Exams required 3 years of Advocacy experience


The Bar Council of India has argued that young graduates, who have no experience at the Bar, are incapable of satisfactorily handling matters and made a remark that “such judicial officers lack understanding of aspirations and expectation of advocates and litigants in a proper and decent manner”. How flimsy is the argument submitted by the BCI! Really this type of argument is beyond the expectation, beyond the expression and even beyond the imagination. Recently BCI expressed their concern towards the mandatory three year experience at bar to be eligible for the judicial services examination. A lot of hue and cry took place when this news came in the light.
