About the Book

    Legal profession in India, second largest in the world, has majority struggling for work and survival. Law is a jealous mistress that calls for undivided loyalty and unflinching attntion from her devotees. Dry drudgery of desks' dead wood is the essential requirement of an advocate aspiring to win laurels in the profession.

    
The genesis of the Advocates Act, 1961 is found in the felt need for providing a uniform and well-knit structure of legal profession which plays pivotal role in strengthening the system of administrative justice in the Country. It is axiomatic that a properly equipped and efficient Bar can play a pre-eminent role only in the system of justice but also in the constitutional government and rule of law. Realising the importance of an independent/integrated Bar, the Indian Bar Committee appointed by Government of India in 1951 recommended, interalia the constitution of an All India Bar Council, State Bar Councils, A common roll of advocates and complete autonomy to the Bar in the matters relating to qualification, administration, discipline, etc. of the members of the profession. In 1958 the Law Commission in its fourteenth report on the Reform of Judicial Administration endorsed the recommendation of the All India Bar committee and urged the Government to implement the same. In 1959, the Legal Practitioner Bill incorporating the recommendations was introduced in the Parliament which was subsequently adopted and renamed as later adopted with the changed name of Indian Advocates Act 1961.

         
The Advocates Act, 1961 recognises only one category of lawyers.

     
The present book is alucid and meticulously designed treatise on Adovcates Act with comprehensive commentary that fills in the gap for good and reliable publication on this specialized Branch of Law. The treatment of the subject is original and systematic. All important citations of the Apex Court and various High Courts have been critically examined and incorporated till date through out the book with analytical comments right from the inception of the Advocates Act, 1961, to make this book reader friendly.

     
The most valuable and precious feature of his master-piece treatise is the extensive coverage provided through a plethora of over 45 Allied Laws related to the subject which enhanced the utility of the book multifolds.

     
It is hoped that this timely publication would be found useful by the Bench, the Bar and all concerned with this important branch of law.
