“The power of the lawyer is in the uncertainty of the Law”. ~Jeremy Bentham “The leading rule for the lawyer, as for the men of every calling, is Diligence.” ~Abraham Lincoin A lawyer is a person who practices law, as an advocate, barrister, attorney, counsellor or chartered legal executive. The legal profession in India has undergone a strategic and substantial change over the last few decades. Nowadays, the law aspirants not only figure themselves in courts but mark their presence in various corporate houses, law agencies, law firms, litigation, administrative services and many more sectors. In brief: Law graduates in our country are not entitled to appear in courts even if they acquire a degree in law or call themselves lawyers. After being enrolled by one of the State Bar Councils, and clearing the All India Bar Examination, a Law Graduate is an Advocate and can appear in Court representing clients.
