742 Lawyers are Prohibited from Work

The Bar Council of Tamil Nadu and Puducherry has prohibited 742 lawyers from practising law, pending disposal of showcause notices to be issued against them. All these lawyers had pursued legal education based on degrees obtained through the open university system, the bar council said. The decision was made as the enrolment of 742 advocates was against Rule 5 of the Legal Education Rules, 2008 and in light of the order passed by the Madras High Court on October 25, it said. A communication issued by the council’s secretary C Raja Kumar said the special committee of the council had passed a resolution to this effect at its meeting held on November 9. The communication clarified that advocates against whom the resolution has been passed, are prohibited from practising in any court of law or before any judicial or quasi-judicial forum, pending disposal of the showcause notice to be issued against them.
