Striking Lawyers

Government has told Lok Sabha that the Bar Associations across the Country, including one in Supreme Court, had opposed Advocates (Amendment) Bill, 2017.

Government further added that lawyer bodies also oppose Law Commission’s 266th Report which has recommende the stringent disciplinary action against the lawyers disrupting the court work, including barring them from practising.

The Law Commission has recommended amendments to the Advocates Act, 1961 to allow lawyers a day’s token strike in the compelling circumstances with prior approval of the Bar Council concerned.
